Vitums Celebrate Easter in Port A

Javiar, Paul, Beth and Susan

Susan, Kathleen and Sandy

Shawn and Pete

Sudie, Brenda and Sadie Dog
Pete and Brenda rolled into Port Aransas Sunday a.m. We met them on the beach after church. Then we went to Hooks for lunch, meeting Javiar, Susan, Carlie, and friends.
Later we cooked out at Javiar and Susan's. Then, just to make sure that Pete was totally exhausted, we went to Bernies to hear the band. They were great. Then home to crash. They are staying at the Plantation, very reasonable, bleachy clean and heated pool. Very satisified there.
I keep forgetting to take pics. Monday we went to Corpus to shop a bit. Academy, Sam's, Walmart, HEB for shrimp. Lunch at Soup and Salad, which was excellent. Will definately go back there. Fresh homemade soups, mac and cheese. Great salad fixins. A crawl through the drive in at Sonic for limeades. Oh yum. Paul and Pete were less than thrilled with the wait, but me and Brenda thought it was worthwhile. If it was a bar drive through ...... that would be a different thing.
Then we all worked on our sun burns at the beach, Brenda and I walked. Some people drank. I had limeade yet and did not add rum. What was I thinking?
Then we got ready for dinner, washing the sand out of ears, hair, necks. We planned to go to La Playa, good coastal Mexican. Closed. Went to the Gaff to discuss options with Javiar. Had a great visit with Heidi, who is cutting Brenda's hair Tuesday. She is so funny and fun. After a pitcher of Fat Tire, we decided to try Pepita's in Aransas Pass. No ferry line at all. Brenda saw dolphins in the channel. Very excited! Pepita's is lovely, clean, new, clean kitchen, friendly staff. The menu was much like Rosario's in San Antonio, but cheaper. Authentic south Texas Mexican. I had the chicken verdi, and it was excellent. The also had chicken mole, I have to get there again and try it. They served many shrimp dishes. The guy at the next table, manager of Myron's Steak House in New Braunfiles, TX, had three dishes, one might have been a nacho, then shrimp chulupas (awsome looking) and something else, yummy. As we left he was just finishing up. Good eater he was. Knew his way around a menu. We were all very happy with our food. Nothing we ordered was over $7 and the refried beans were also superior.
Took the ferry across the creek, home, crash into bed. Tuesday, start over again.
