I arrived in Port Aransas, TX Wednesday afternoon to visit my dear friends Susan and Chris. I missed last year but this is my 6th annual visit to Port A since 2008. Susan and Chris are known here as “Winter Texans,” midwesterners who escape the harsh winters and spend the winter months fishing and enjoying the surf, seaside, and abundant wildlife along the Gulf of Mexico in South Texas. After picking me up at the airport in Corpus Christi, Susan and Chris treated me to an indulgent Sushi feast at Water Street Oyster Bar in Corpus; all of the delectable fish, including yellowtail, albacore, blue crab, hamachi, and shrimp, was caught in these Gulf waters. I have missed it here and am happy to be back for the next ten days.
I took a few shots as Susan and I strolled on the beach as the sun dipped behind us.
