On A Hazy Morning Stroll...

While I was nearing my car parked on a small incline near the jetty, I kept my eye on the incoming and outgoing foreign ships. As I mentioned, I wasn't able to get UP on the jetty, so I tried to find a small hill to stand on to get the view of the channel waters and perhaps be lucky enough to have one of the many ships floating by in silence...perhaps I could spot a dolphin or two!! These two pastimes are always a personal favorite when I am at Port Aransas. It was a busy morning.


Lydia Ann Lighthouse on the Aransas Pass [across the channel] side of the water; with a tour boat....and the bow of an incoming tanker and in the misty background an outgoing ship.


Set at panoramic view the FU QUAN SHAN  leaving. From FleetMon website, I found that the ship is heading to Honduras, arriving on October 2nd...



Two ships meet midway and the bow of a tanker/carrier from Hong Kong...the Fu Quan Shan ...did you notice the pelican?


Lastly, stepping up on the extended dune to raise myself up to view the channel water, I focused on the ship's bow:

  1. What a surprise! Your dolphin shots are amazing!! And no, I didn't see the pelican till I read about it and looked. The Fu Quan Shan is so unusual, I have not seen a ship like it. Your first two pictures are so artistic. But of course the dolphins are my favorite. Hey, look at my blog today. I may have found a bird that you have not seen! I never, ever thought that would happen. Let me know if you have seen this one.

    1. Ahhhhh, you had no problem seeing the images today then? I do think it was 'cause I hadn't finished editing the new layout when you tried to visit yesterday. We're all set then. lol

      Thanks D J

  6. Oh how neat to see the dolphins! I've only ever seen them about thirty years ago in captivity at sea world. I'd much rather they all be free!

    1. I LOVE foggy mornings [and nights] by the sea. There is something mystical and mysterious about them. And then, the ships, and the fog horns...awesome.

      Thanks Mr. B

    1. It's so changed in landscape after Harvey...the beach is markedly different and the jetty is inacessible to watch the ships coming and going. At least I found a spot to get to the level where I can see the dolphins. Thanks Sandra

  15. Anni have you ever told the story here as to how you and Bud decided to settle in Corpus? Nice pictures as always. When I read your blog I always feel the sand between my toes and the sea breeze rustling my hair. I haven't been down there in several years.
