Vacation Time

Elaine and I will be leaving in a few days (75 hours from now, actually - but who's counting) to go on our summer vacation.

We're beach people - and we found a place not that far from home. It's called Laughing Horse Lodge. It's a dog-loving funky little set of condos in Port Aransas.

I always hear of how bad Texas beaches are --- but this little spot is really great. The sand is soft (not that hard gravely stuff) and there are great dives to eat at. Our favorite is Shells, a little place across the road from our condo. I'm no fan of seafood - but this place serves up a burger on a ciabatta bun that I could eat more than 3 times a day. And I might just do that.
I can't believe the summer is almost gone...but I'm more than excited to close it out this way.
