Today In Port Aransas, August 27, 2009

California Road Trip 1971

In 1971 my friends Cliff Schlabach, C.J. Kuklinski and myself made a two week road trip to California to do some surfing. We didn't get too many good waves but had a great time. We traveled in Cliff's brand new Karmann Ghia, along with our clothes, surfboards and wet suits.

Port A Today, 08-05-09 2:54 pm

It is hot today, as it was yesterday and the day before, and will be for the foreseeable future!
Corpus Christi has had 28 straight days with temperatures over 95 degrees and has had several days over 100 which is very unusual down here on the Gulf of Mexico. Fortunately Port Aransas and Padre Island is a bit cooler with a good sea breeze but it is still hot.
This has been a Tennessee Williams summer, as in "The Long Hot Summer!"
