Yesterday I packed and got in the truck and headed out for a 6 hour drive across central Texas. My friends that live near Corpus Christi invited me down to the Texas Sand Fest.
One can do a lot of thinking while driving for 6 hours. I also call some friend or a niece to talk and to just pass the time. I enjoy the scenery too. Last year central Texas was in the midst of a drought. But we have been getting plenty of rain this spring and thing look a lot greener than when I drove down here last year for Jimmas.
I really love spending time with these friends, I wish they lived closer. But it's nice to come stay with them and to be so close to the beach. The beach at Port Aransas, where we go, is much nicer than Glavaston Beach further up the Texas coast. And sometime when I come down we will go to Padre Island.
I hope y'all have a happy Friday and a great weekend. Hopefully I'll have some great sandcastle pictures to share when I get home on Sunday.
