SandFest Sponsor and Port A Kiwanis 5K kids

The last week of February the Port Aransas Kiwanis 5K run gave me a photo op with a poster from my SandFest Sponsor Mark Grosse Real Estate.

When the kids were through running they came to the kids tent for FREE sand castle lessons. This photo from the island page of the Port Aransas South Jetty Newspaper was taken by Phil Reynolds.

Spring Break

Spring Break is in Full Swing in the Coastal Bend. Gave Sand Castle lessons today to some visitors from the Dallas area. Got to Port A from Corpus Christi just in time. By that I mean no traffic. On the way home it was bumper to bumper from newport pass back to the bridge. Think I could do without the beach if I had to sit in that traffic. I had no traffic heading back into town.

March Beach and Spring Break

Man this was a great day today. Went to the beach at Newport Pass, built a sand castle with friends and watched the waves. It is great living so close to the beach and being a sand castle guy. I will post pictures of the castle as soon as they develope.

Had several military approach the castle and ask questions about it. I tell you I get wound up when I talk to these guys. Just knowing they volunteer to help make us secure and that they put their lives on the line so we can continue to enjoy our way of life it just makes me proud to be an American.

Had dinner at the Island Italian Restaurant with my friend Terri and her two friends (my friends now too). Great time!!!!!
