Port Royal - ohhh the memories

So it was Port Royale (with the "e') back in the day and the rock slide is gone and it was immediate family this year -- but our first trip back to Port A, Mustang Island and Port Royal was GREAT!!! 2 new tube slides replace the rock slide which I went on ohhh about 100 times - no exaggeration. The beach was really nice (Thanks Ike!) and well -- you can't go too wrong with a weekend with the Chumchal's. We definitely have to go back next year and for an additional day!

HOWEVER -- it can never go without a few kinks. We spent the first 45 minutes at Pohler Tire Center in Shiner getting ALL the stems replaced on the Suburban (which also needs new tires). Robert and I nearly broke up. We had to leave early on Sunday to bury a very dear friend of the family. Luckily it was a great temperature outside so the water was perfect and the sun too. It did get windy on Saturday evening -- but it only made the scenery better as we laughed for a good 30 minutes at a couple of guys trying to barbeque! Quite amusing! I believe the one guy's fajitas went from tenderized beef to jerky, REAL QUICK! :)

Here's a few pictures -
The pools are still as awesome as ever:
I think this is Jenny going off the slide - hee hee - good times!Look at those studs and hot momma!
Playing in the sand is fun at ANY age!

Sounds like the rough start helped out the weekend! Glad things are going well with you! Miss the bunco girls---but sad, to say, time has definitely flown this year!
