There wasn’t much going on this week in Port Aransas. So for the Views of the Neighborhood, I selected some random shots that you might find interesting.
I am fascinated by the Corpus Christi ship channel. I was on my way to Rockport for an eye exam (almost TMI John) and was on the ferry. There was a delay and here is the reason.
The boat is riding high in the water so yu can tell it is heading for a pick up of oil. This next shot will give you an idea of its length
One final view as it goes down the channel. As you can see this freighter is registered in Singapore. She was built in 1999 and yesterday she was off the coast of Costa Rica. If you would like to track her movement, the link will allow you to do that. Geek warning. Vessel Finder.com
The next two photos are of two views of the morning sun that we witnessed this week while out walking the dogs.
The first is a look out over the Gulf and a rain storm off shore.
This next one is a taken on a different day about the same time as the first but without rain.
The golden tone was what caught my eye. The last photo was taken downtown while taking pictures of scarecrows a week ago. It is a sunset as seen over some trees.
The Port Aransas water tower and a power pole add a little scale. The Port Aransas mascot is the Marlin, and the teams are the Fighting Marlins.
I hope you enjoyed this potpourri today.
