Big Tree

Another cold day in South Texas.....the wind is so cold! We couldn't sit another day in the trailer so we decided to take a drive. One of the things on the list of "Things to Do and See" was the Big Tree, supposed to be over 1000 years old. It is a live oak tree and right on the bay. You can see the water from the tree. Can't imagine how it managed to survive all those years.

That didn't take very long; it was fairly close to where we are parked. So, we drove down the Fulton Beach Road then decided to eat lunch at Alice Faye's on the beach front. Special today was meatload for $5.95. Was really good. They have live music on Friday and Saturday night. Maybe we'll see how that is while we are here.

Got back home and took a nap and then Nolan said lets go get some ice cream.....even if it's cold I'll not turn down ice cream. By the time we got home, it was raining but not very hard. I'm really ready for some good weather!
