Still Loving The Beach

We are loving living here!  Mom and I take a morning walk on the beach each day.  It is our favorite time of day.  We walk 1.5 miles.  I always think that I can go further, but it is a good thing that Mom pays attention because I am dragging by the time we get back.  We have taken afternoon and evening walks too, but I can't do those every day.  It is just too tiring for me.  We took an evening walk with Dad last Sunday and that was fun. There were lots of tourists on the beach.

This past weekend was the Lone Star Rally. It is motorcycle rally.  It was LOUD!  Mom moved my bed away from the patio door because the noise was getting to me.  I actually stayed in the bedroom quite a bit because it was much quieter.  In the evenings, the folks sat on the balcony and watched the bikers go by.  Many of them had lights on their bikes, so that was fun to see.  I did sit out from time to time with them.  The folks went to the rally on Saturday. They rode the trolley to it.  Mom said it was obvious that they didn't fit in.  Dad wore his camo shorts and Mom had a blue and white polka dot shirt.  She said she should have worn black and she would have fit in better.  They ate lunch at Willie G's which is a seafood place.  Unfortunately, they do not have a lunch menu on the weekends, so it was quite pricey for lunch.

On Sunday, the folks looked at a condo in this building that they are interested in buying.  It will be really small.  It will be as big as the RV.  We are used to small spaces though. Tiny houses are the in thing, right?  LOL  It is probably bigger than some New York apartments.  The folks have been thinking about it for a while and have some plans to make it work for us. The price and the lower HOA fees make it attractive.  It is on the second floor and we are on the fourth.  Mom thought the motorcycles would be extremely loud from that condo, but they weren't.  The patio door in that unit is much better.  Our door doesn't seal and the noise and air do not stay out.   We will see what happens with that condo.

The RV may have a buyer.  We are waiting to find out if they are approved for a loan.

There is always something going on at the beach.

We found this written on the beach.
We almost stepped on this guy.

I was exhausted Saturday night!
Mom and I went to Petsmart today. She wanted to find a collapsible water bowl for me to take on our walks.  They didn't have one.  We will have to order one online.  Mom has been carrying a bag with a water bowl and a bottle of water.  She is thinking of getting a fanny pack type thing to hold everything.    We stopped at McDonald's for lunch.  Yum!  Yes, she is still losing weight, but we go out from time to time and she orders something like a McDouble instead of a Big Mac.  It works.
