Corpus

Knock, knock, knock....y'all still here?  I had intentions on posting yesterday but after I got home from work, I was exhausted. Finally got to it today.

So yes, the husband and I went to Corpus on Friday.  I had work meetings all weekend and he enjoyed relaxing.  I was glad he went.  I like to have him there in the evenings to go to dinner and watch football.  Yea, that's what we did while we were at the beach.  Walked to dinner, then made our way back to the room to watch football.  We are such party animals.  My co-worker stayed out till 3am on Friday and 2am on Saturday! We were in bed by 9 every night!  Usually when I'm out of town, I go eat by myself (cause I can't wait till 7p to eat with the group, I'm partial to the early bird special time!) and then hang in my room.  I catch some flack for it but I don't care.

Anyhoo, nothing too spectacular about the trip.  I tried catching the sun coming up over the water Sunday morning.  Just my luck, it was cloudy!!  I so wanted pretty sunrise pictures.  I don't get to the coast much but mother nature didn't want to work with me.

Here are a few shots from that morning.  I had to be back in meetings at 8 so it was a quick outing.

It was nice to have a different landscape.  I get bored with taking pictures around the house.  Seems like they all look alike.  Wish I had more time to take more while I was there. Bummer....

The pictures you did get are beautiful -- sounds like a very relaxing weekend. -- It seems like our sunsets here are most spectacular in the fall -- so tonight I started venturing out to the field to see what I can see!

The pics are beautiful. The clouds add an element of texture to them. I'm so the party animal too - I'm usually in bed by 9 PM but I get up at 5 AM. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Glad you had a good trip. We always go to bed at 9 too. ;)

Water and sky and I loved the framing one. I lived by the ocean once for a few weeks when I was 17 and loved it. It's flat like the prairie and you can feel the power of all that water. I was so not prepared for the sound, waves always coming in or going out. And farmer's are farmer's whether they farm the land or the sea, so dependent on the weather. Memories of another life those photos brought back to me. Fun.

Ahhh... I'm glad the two of you got to spend some *quality* time together, and the thought of walking along the beach to dinner and back sounds just lovely!

I'm off to bed early myself, basically because I love early mornings so much! I'm a 8-4 or 9-5 girl, and would rather eat alone and go to bed early, than wait to eat! :)
The peace... the quiet... and no one yammering their fool heads off at me! lol!
