Our second day in Rockport and our first full day was mostly spent on the beach!! As that was the main reason we headed that direction! We got up and had breakfast and headed out to get a good spot on the beach for the day. I think we made it onto the sand around 10:30 that morning and stayed until the afternoon! It was a beautiful day - started off a little cloudy, which was great to shade us a little from the sun. We set up our EZ up and beach blanket and simply played and relaxed!!
The first thing the kids and their daddy did was start hunting shells and they found plenty...and ALL with inhabitants, too! We had hermit crabs for days!!
In the end, though, we let them all go!!
The water was so shallow we were able to venture out very far from shore!
One thing about being in the water so long is it tires you out!
Aaron decided it was time to lay down for a while, so daddy & Emma went back to our room and grabbed the groceries we bought for our lunch.
He asked me to cover him head to toe! LOL
After we finished our lunch we headed back to the room - we were beat from all the water and sun and had to rest a little before the next adventure!
The first day Michael and Aaron went to check out a crabbing spot, so they decided to go back on Day 2. It turned out to be my favorite spot in town, though. It was a tiny, but beautiful little park!!
Emma and I dropped off the boys to go shopping, but turned out most places closed up pretty early, so we explored a little and headed back to the park!
Aaron liked crabbing, but he LOVED fishing!!
This girl here loved climbing on the trees, too. South Texas has lots of good climbing trees for sure!
Aaron took a fishing break to climb a little, too!
I struck up a conversation with another couple there -and it turned out they were from East Texas, where my hometown is! Small world! We also ended up crashing a wedding while we were there. A small group of folks were there setting up for a ceremony out on the sandbar so we hung around to watch. It was such a beautiful spot for a little ceremony, too!
We stuck around after the "I Dos" to watch the sunset, too...definitely worth it, though pictures do not do it justice at all!
