Maui and California turned me into a beach snob. So much that I'd lived here eight years and had never graced Port Aransas with my Royal Hawaiian presence. Because Texas? Beaches? Please.
I'm also typically skeptical of websites that photoshop clouds or sunsets behind their rentals. But my good friend Lauren said Cinnamon Shore was awesome. And I've been fiending for the water ...(why is spellcheck telling me that word doesn't exist? Has Webster never heard of crack? Or Horse? Or a girl who might die if she can't smell the ocean?) So we packed up the family and headed three hours to the Texas coast this weekend.
On the way, we let the kids overdose on technology. The silence was a little eerie + fantastic.
We weren't sure if it was going to rain or shine, which is the best weather for contrasty (overly-photoshopped) cloud pictures:
"Pool Party" by TRA does pretty things to clouds.
We weren't there ten minutes before Emily was doing this.
Made me re-think my opinions about the Texas ocean completely.
