Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas
The OFM was slowly gaining awareness of his surroundings. His nice sleep was being destroyed by the multicolored bright lights flashing inside the Castle. His sleep fogged small brain could not seem to grasp why all the police car flashing lights were inside the Castle. His hands were groping around in delirium as he tried to get awake to handle the crazy emergency whatever it was. Surely the earth was ending or something as bad.
He finally got his glasses on and was enough awake to realize he was half blind and it was the aura of a major migraine in the making. The migraine was a sort of welcome revelation as opposed to the first thought of a campground full of emergency vehicles. OK time to calm down and just hurt for a while.
The medicine was taken to help keep the brain pain minimized. Then some breakfast of cereal and soy milk settled his stomach quiet a bit. After an hour or so the OFM decided he would live to regret it again and the day began.
By 1300 hours the OFM was starving and knew exactly what he wanted to eat. A trip to the City of Aransas Pass and the San Juan restaurant. Sierra got him there safely. There was even lots of room inside for his massive bulk to pull up a few chairs and sit down.
Looking at the menu for the exact item he wanted to order gave him a chance to notice a forgotten item that he also likes. Chicken Fajita Salad was what caught his eye. And it was very delicious. We wanted him to go back out to Sierra to get the camera and take a picture of it, but he had a third of it inhaled before we could get his attention to suggest the camera. You will just have to take our word for it that it is a great meal.
On the way back to Rockport the OFM decided it would do him good to hit the harbor area and sit around in the shade and watch the tourists be tourists. When we got there, the fishing pier was being well used.
After a little sitting in the shade, the OFM noticed something weird moving through the choppy water a good ways from the bulkhead. Naturally he had to get nosey and check it out. It at first looked like a long critter making its way through the choppy water. BUT when it got closer it turned out to be a duck family meandering around in an area they normally are not habitating.
They were moving along nicely going to who knows where. This was water with no normal suck habitat close by. There are things in that water that would be happy to chomp a duckling. Some of the sharks would handle the adult ducks easily also. When we left the ducks were still meandering around the area. Our hope is they figured out where they needed to be and went there safely.
By now it was time for the OFM to get in some more horizontal time with hopes of this evening feeling good enough to try having tooooo much fun.
