Salty Dogs and Dolphins


Port Aransas, Texas
Salty Dog Saloon
Ruby Tuesday's RUBY SUNGLASSES...


This week's theme for Picstory Tuesday is "BLUE"

As some followers and frequent blogging visitors come by, well...y'all know that I have a small collection of blown glass dolphins. Bud and I made a special shelving unit [shaped a bit like a lighthouse for the dining room's nautical themed decor] of which I posted about here at THIS LINK some time ago. A few weeks back, during the Shrimporee in Port Aransas/Aransas Pass, Texas, we decided to just walk the main street of Port A instead, and go into some of the curio shops along the way. I found a couple of glass dolphins that are quite unique. In other words, a designed glass that I didn't have yet. Well I do now. They're on a window sill, reflecting as the light of day shines through the window---

  8. Great Ruby Tuesday capture. I wonder if the inspiration for naming this place was the bluegrass song from Flatt and Scruggs, or the drink? Both are probably appropriate at this establishment. Thanks for stopping by Driller's Place. Happy RT.

  9. I think I would like to sit down at the bar at the old Salty Dog and tip back a beer or two. ;)

  21. What? No bait? How dare they!


    What is there about the color red
    That makes me want to stand on my head,
    And give a loud shout or two of praise
    For crimson tints that brighten my days?
