Today I thought I would take you on a tour of some of the places we all love to go to grab something quick. It may be a sweet or something for dinner. I purposely left out the pizza places, and fast food joints cause you can see those right where you are. So here we go.
Our first stop is a place where you can grab crabs and shrimp. They also have some bait, but most of the business is fish, crabs, and shrimp. Here is the sign on Highway 361. (don’t be confused it is a two lane road.)
Now a shot of the store
If you are in the mood for something cold, then a sno-cone is right up your alley. Here is Tropical Sno in the Spanky’s liquor store parking lot (Could be worse)
The building is cute and fits with the burnt orange of the Spanky decor. Not to be confused with that Coors Light semi in the background.
How about a pickle sno-cone. (you first)
Right across the street is a shaved ice stand. Now you have to know the difference between a sno-cone and shaved ice. I’ll bet you thought I was going to tell you didn’t you. Well okay, a sno-cone is served in a paper cone and is crunchy. The syrup added more or less makes its way to the bottom where the last bites are the most delicious. Shaved ice is finer and resembles snow. The syrup generally penetrates all the snow, so each bite is uniform. It is usually served in a foam cup.(Even though Nola’s sign looks like it is in a paper cone. There, now you know.
We also have Ice cream on the island and in fact tow ice cream shops. This one is cute and like all things, in Port A it has an interesting neighbor.
I will be doing a feature on tattoo parlors another time but doesn’t this place look interesting?
Here is the other Ice Cream parlor. By the way, that circle of what looks like smoke is a Blue Angel. They are giving a show in Corpus Christi. I didn’t even know I had caught it until I got home.
Here is another view. The place is called “Desserted Island.”
Our final stop is the newest fish place. The guy’s name is Paul, and this is Pauls Seafood. Paul is very popular in Corpus Christi, and he took over another seafood shop here in Port A. I’m sorry, but the idea of live crawfish gives me the willies.
Hope you enjoyed the view this week.
