Saturday and nothing on the schedule....

It is a fine Saturday on the beach. Shari and I took a drive to Crystal Beach yesterday afternoon to meet some friends and the work continues at a snail's pace on the storm recovery. Sand is piling up I guess 30' high in large mounds from the dredging of the Intracoastal Waterway. This brings more junk from the waterway to be hauled off. As major areas are "cleaned" of large items such as house parts, septic tanks, boats, cars etc., the small stuff gets sifted and disposed looks like it will take forever.

Not much is growing yet...a little "green fur" on some of the land but beach sand is thick in most places now due to the washing away of the years old dunes.

It is hot and windy with temps in the mid to upper 80's, humidity in 65-75% mostly and moquito count at about a zillion per cubic yard. I dashed out to the MH to put some stuff back in and only brought back about 7 of the little blood suckers into the house.

Shari is playing computer games as I Blog....

Tomorrow we will head to my sister Jo and her husband Raymond's ranch in Beaumont for a bit to enjoy Mother's Day. Jo and my other sister Alice took care of our mom's gravesites.....that chore I gladly delegate to them.

Fajita's tonight....and a quiet evening at home.

Happy Mother's Day to all who qualify....and enjoy!

Hi Folks,

I hope you don't mind if I ask your advice. I visited the Stingaree Restaurant a couple of weeks back the the wait for the ferry was awful. I was considering taking the back way through Winnie and High Island. Can you tell me if the bridge at Gilchrist is hard to get across? I can foresee having to wait a long time while opposing traffic clears, but I just don't know.

I appreciate any advice you might have.

Best regards,

The bridge is fine. There may be a bit of sand and/or water on the edge of the road past Gilchrist but nothing to stop a vehicle..just take care. We are in High Island, one block off the highway. You are right...the ferry is a mess and will be for months or longer.
