Spent Christmas day with our winter Texan friends Ken & Sharon at the VFW for dinner & free beer & wine.
Then Ken took us to the Gaffe for the Belt Sander Races. This is the Track where the Belt Sanders duel Drag Race Style. Below are the Contestants souped up Belt Sanders.
We wasted no time using our $50 coupon at the trout St. Grill, Had a great lunch and brought plenty home for dinner.
All the restaurants in Port A run specials for the winter Texans, so we tried Castaways Early Bird Special, the food was good but the portions small.
We went back to the VFW for Thursday night Taco Salad where we learned about the Port A Rockers, So we went over to Bernie's to check out the band of 5, 4 of the musicians are Winter Texans. They of course played oldies but Goodies.
Next we went to the free monthly Art show at the Art Center. They had a jazz band, and free wine and food.
After the Art center we found out a local Legend Cody Angel was playing 1 block away at the Wild Horse so we walked over for more Port A Flavor.
This is the still in High School Cody Angel playing his heart out, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Hendrix, Stevie Ray, and much more.
Jan 8th we attended the Bay Yacht Club Installation Banquet
I am not sure how this happened but they installed me as a Flag officer, Secretary. That is Lisa the new Commodore of BYC
This is the entire new board, out of ten seven of us are new to this world of Yacht Club management.
The next morning at 4am after the banquet we had a small Hailstorm, this ice was in the cockpit, we had 70+ mile per hour winds and about 20 minutes of healing 20 degrees in the slip.
This pic was taken about 10 am as the dock buzzards gathered to compare stories of riding out the early morning storm.
