We Found Edgar!!

WHERE ARE WE?           Magnolia Beach, Texas for another week or so            
NEXT DESTINATION?     Kickapoo Casino, North Falcon Heights, Texas

One of the fun things that happen around Magnolia Beach is that they have a  mannequin that stands by a pole in town and people dress him up in line with whatever is the occasion of the day.  He is on a back street in town and sometimes hard to find, so I challenged the group to find Edgar Magnolia.  I didn't tell them that he was a mannequin or anything about him.  I challenged them to be the first person to deliver a picture of them with Edgar.  They all did some research and we have a winner!!  Debbie and Jerry found it first and here is Debbie pictured with Edgar!!

And coming in second was John and Val.  Here they are with Edgar.  Edgar is all dressed up for Easter which is late in April this year!

Magnolia Beach is a great place to be and we just love hanging out here.  The weather has been up and down but warm all the time.  We have had some rain and some fog.  Cant complain.

Sometimes its hard to believe that it is spring here, because the temperatures are more like our summers.  But when you watch the birds, lots of them are in mating mode.  The grackles around here are making some really weird noises and ruffling their feathers funny.  It is quite funny to watch.

Like I said the weather has been quite warm and the water seems like a real good way to cool off.  We moved all our chairs up to the waters edge for happy hour. 

I had my chair right in the water cooling my toes.  The water was very nice.

Lessie has a passion for finding shells and especially coral.  There is lots of coral on this beach so it is fun scavenging for it.  We all had a chuckle because Lessie didn't realize the tide was coming in and her chair was getting in the water until finally she realized it and bolted out of there.

Sue and Pat were the brave ones and headed in for a swim.  They said the water was quite chilly but still swimmable.  

They were in for quite a while and Lessie started giving them a hard time.  It wasn't long before the water was flying and Lessie once again got wet.

We had another great day today here at Magnolia Beach and look forward to a few more with our friends.  Here was the view out of our window today:
