Port Arthur boardwalk and seawall

I recently found out that Pt. Arthur, TX has a boardwalk. Not a fancy boardwalk with shops and casinos, just a nice place to walk and see the boats on the Sabine-Neches Canal.

First, though, we had to walk past the South County Office Building.

And now we get to watch the boats passing though the canal (usually called the ship channel).

There are several planter beds along the boardwalk that have a mixture of flowers and weeds.

I was hearing this odd noise, sort of like "FROOF!", and it finally dawned on me that it was a pair of dolphins, blowing as they surfaced. Those suckers are fast....

Those pusher tugs ride pretty low in front when they aren't attached to a barge.

Even though the Haley Moran's home port is Wilmington, DE, she's in this area a lot.

Two hours, 300+ photos, and one geocache later, I was exhausted, but it was nice to escape and have some time to myself.

Ship canals are endlessly entertaining, Rosemary.

Long, long time ago I lived for a couple of years on the end houseboat on the Lake Washington Ship Canal (Seattle, Washington.--on the port side and directly behind me Foss Tug and Barge kept many of their big ocean going tugs and barges.

So there was stuff going on both day and night. The big stuff (the ocean going barges tended by the big tugs went through the canal mostly during the night--during the day the traffic tended to be smaller commercial vessels and lots of pleasure boats--both sail and power.

Thanks for the memories Rosemary...

Talk about random associations—for some reason, every time I look at this pic, I think of the purple martin house that our next door neighbor put up when I was a kid (like this one.) I was fascinated by it. They were all the rage back then—do people still build them in their yards?

Very nice series, Rosemary, thanks for sharing.



She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader.
She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.

Yes, people still have them, but I don't see them as much as I used to.
