Today’s View of the Neighborhood is a collection of random photos taken while searching for something interesting to share. There are a couple of stories in these pictures, and I hope you enjoy them.
Virginia’s by the Bay is one of the first restaurants to open after hurricane Harvey. Their sign says what a lot of people think.
The other side of their sign also says what a lot of Port Aransas people think.
Port Aransas lost all of the firetrucks and EMT equipment. Here is a photo of The Cleburne Texas truck doing duty in Port A.
Here is a truck from Abilene, Texas which is in the center of the state.
And the Fire Chief from Wichita Falls, Texas which is up near Oklahoma
This next series of photos are of boats that ended up as far away from water as possible. This one landed in a scrub pine outcropping.
Here is one in a shopping center.
Another boat is in the parking lot of a shopping center.
This one ended up at the end of a canal.
Signs are another interesting part of the Port Aransas scene. This one is simple and tells you the IGA is open.
A kind offer by the local Chiropractor. Most of the signs in Port A are handmade.
Here is an exception. The Pepsi company put some of these signs where Pepsi is sold.
Here is a sign I love. This sign pointed the way to the National Guard position where you could get Ice, water, and food. When you have none of these things, this sign was a welcome sight indeed. It is on its back because it is no longer needed.
While taking pictures I came upon my barber Mike’s new location. He has set up shop in a storage unit. I’m glad I found him.
I hope you liked the walk around today. Next week there are several activities which I will document.
