Happy Easter!

Saturday's Sunrise
Again we were up shortly after 0700.  Don't know how long this will last but it's kind of nice having my morning coffee with my honey.  Once breakfast was over I got busy and stripped the bed and started washing the sheets.  I did the dishes also.  

Then we went to the commissary for a few items.  Jim found some Summer Shandy beer.  He's been waiting since last summer for it to be in stock.  

Back home we put everything away and I continued with the laundry and fixed us some dinner.  Jim cooked a pork chop on the grill and I made some stuffing, steamed some broccoli and carrots and reheated some turnips.  After dishes were done we were both ready for a nap....

Early evening we went for a walk and saw this duck and heron.  also a dolphin swam by but he didn't surface long enough for a picture.  The breeze off the water was wonderful but if you wanted to spend time out there you needed a jacket.

Corpus Christi Sky Line

Saturday's Sunset

The sky was ever changing but it was so clear we could see Corpus Christi across the bay and eastward we could see the barrier islands

Today we again got up early, around 0730...maybe it's the sea air!  We had a lazy morning and decided to go to the mall after lunch.  I fixed a stir-fry and after the dishes were done we headed out.  

I guess it being Easter Sunday the stores were closed.  We did find a Bed Bath and Beyond open and bought a couple things that we needed for the soda machine.

Not much else happened today.  We're just enjoying our stay here.

Hope your Easter was special for you.

Time for a walk!
