its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Aug. 12 - Aransas Bay, TX

Rockport Harbor

“Some people look for a beautiful place, others make a place beautiful.” - Hazrat Inayat Khan 

Another day cruising on Aransas Bay...we could get use to this! We both miss being on the water. I know what you're thinking, we're on the water every day, but living on the boat in the marina is different than actual cruising. Both are great...but we enjoy MOVING on the water.

The main reason for today's cruise was to buy fuel. Stan's been asking the shrimpers in our harbor where they buy diesel and they all told him the best place was in Aransas Pass at Conn Brown Fuel Dock. So that was our first stop. We took on 200 gallons...the price $1.90 a gallon. That the lowest price we've paid since we started cruising...wish we could take some back to The Pearl.

Our next stop was at Redfish Willie's for lunch. They're located at the end of Conn Brown Harbor and have wonderful floating docks. It's been a long time since we've pulled up on our boat and had lunch. We enjoyed visiting with other cruisers while we enjoyed the view. I'm sure we'll make this cruise again.

It looks like Texas to me...

but the ICW here is beginning to look a lot like Florida with all these nice homes.
