Texas Coastal Bend – Aransas Pass / Port Aransas – Shrimp… Oh my gosh!

We hosted Dan and Karen H over at our place for breakfast this morning. Ask any RVer that knows me – I love to cook breakfast for a group 🙂 Yesterday when we were all at HEB Plus doing some grocery shopping, Karen mentioned to me that she heard that Panettone bread French Toast is good and she had a loaf that needed to be used up. So a breakfast kernel was planted in my brain, germinated, grew to maturity – all in a matter of seconds… and a breakfast plan was born 🙂 I made French Toast with the Panettone and backed that up with French Toast made with a wide Italian bread. I also made my dreamy scrambled eggs and I sliced up some South Texas pink grapefruit. Dan and Karen brought over some fried bacon. Yum! We had a really nice breakfast – brunch really. And a nice visit too.

At 3 pm, the 4 of us took the ferry over to Port A to have dinner at Kody’s Restaurant and Bar.

Tonight is the second to last time of this season that they’ll have all-you-can-eat Fried Shrimp.

Oh man, was that stuff good. We tore it up. I did anyway. I figure I had 20 pieces. The shrimp was butterflied, battered and fried. Oh man – these things were huge.

After dinner, we drove along several beaches, right on the sand on Port A. We stopped at one spot where a fisherman was feeding his chicken liver bait to two Pelicans. This was funny to watch.

We also watched several big ships (tankers and barges) navigate the shipping channels that serve Corpus Christi. I didn’t get a picture of it, but we did see dolphins jumping in front of one of the ships.

Later, Dan and Karen came by for ice cream, coffee and some fun conversation. They brought their fur-kid Herbie with them – always a gentleman and always welcome 🙂

Nancy and I both spent the night working online and listening to music in the background.
