its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Sept. 29-30 - Trip to Palacios

Fall weather has arrived and it is wonderful. Since the weather was so great…blue sky, lower temperatures and no wind, we decided to take a trip up the coast to Palacios. We left the marina at 9:15 and arrived in Palacios around 1:00. It was a perfect day to be on the water. The best part of the trip was watching the dolphins play in front of the boat. The water was pretty clear and I could see them having a great time out running the boat. They can swim a lot faster than our boat can move! At one point I could see three. I love watching them play.

We docked at Serendipity Bay Resort. Their facility is very clean and everyone was friendly. Most of the boats in the marina are sailboats and the piers seemed a little small, but we had no problem tying up. We spent the afternoon wondering around the water front and having a late lunch at PMR (Palacios Mexican Restaurant). We spent the evening relaxing and talking to a few other boaters. It was a great way to spend a beautiful fall day.

Our trip back to Port Lavaca was just as nice. What a wonderful experience after a long hot summer.
