Great Supper

Potato salad and poached pork chops are a wonderful supper meal we just found out tonight. That was some good eating.

It was chilly this morning but almost all of the storm residue water was gone from the area when we did a patrol of the area.  When Sierra got to the Memorial Park it was a pretty but cool start to the 3 mile walk.



The OFM got the idea from a comment on yesterday’s blog that maybe a picture now and then of a boat or two from the harbor might be of some interest to a few readers. So tonight we have a shrimping boat of the well used variety. There are several of those style of boats here since shrimp is a major area product. If there is a question about shrimping please feel free to ask since the OFM has done a good bit of it in his younger days in the Galveston Bay Texas complex.



Last night the OFM placed an order for more watercolor pencils from his favorite supplier, Dick Blick art supplies.  To our incredulous surprise when we checked our account to make certain everything was OK, we found it had been processed and shipped today. Since it was free shipping we expected a long wait to receive it. NOPE.  It is due here in Rockport next Thursday. How is that for good service!

The new header picture posted today is from the far end of the walking trail at the Memorial Park.  We think it is a nice scene. The surprise to many is the scenery is this type and is a little less than a mile inland from the salt water. 



That is one more example of why this is a pretty good place for trying to have tooooo much fun.

  1. Yes. Shrimp boats! Good! And any additions you might add from your young days shrimping. Photos probably not available from that time. But stories are good.

  2. Thanks for the boat picture & I agree about old shrimp boat stories. The only one I ever had was from 50+ years ago when two sisters I went to grade school with went to work on one. One disappeared in the night never to be found.

    What happens to the comments? When I go back to see if you have answered they are gone. Is it a glitch or do you remove them for space saving, etc?

    1. I had a lot of trouble with comments being the way in for hackers, so I was getting rid of the comments to stop the hackers. Maybe it is safe again so I will try leaving them in for a bit.

  5. I'd love to hear about shrimping. The closest I've come is pulling a couple pots with my father-in-law about 20 years ago. And you can't go wrong with boat photos though I am prejudiced: I'm a boat guy stranded in the Nevada desert.

  6. Shrimping stories would be great!
    The only shrimping I've done was with homemade hardware cloth pots and really really long line in Port Angeles Washington harbor out of a canoe.
    We didn't get a lot of shrimp but it was fun...

    I like the header picture!

  7. The placement of the foreground in that picture is almost too good to believe. Nature does good work in helping set up your photos.

  8. Thank you Linda. It only took me about fifteen minutes of tramping around in the brush to get that alignment for the photograph.
