Crusty Eyeballs

Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas

The OFM awoke to crusted over eyes and sinus misery. It seemed like it was allergy related to the weather front that came through. The whole day was not his best ever so when evening came he went to the beach park to sit on a waterfront bench and supervise the wave action.

However the prevailing 30 mph winds made the normal bench very undesirable for resting.


Notice the water that was getting blown all the way across the thirty feet of grass to the parking lot. This would have been a great place to take a saltwater bath.

So we parked Sierra across the parking lot and grabbed a rod to use for fishing. Then we headed to bench alternative number two. It had the wind to our back and no wave spray made it across the 200 feet to bench no. 2.

At this location the OFM sat on the bench for a good while as the perch ate his bait over and over. He finally decided he was wind burned enough and we headed home. Sierra had collected a large layer of salt crust that will need to be flushed away tomorrow.

Perhaps washing Sierra will turn out to be a great way of trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Amazing how that salt crust just appears, getting it away asap is critical as you well know.

  2. Winter salt from the roads destroys the autos in New England.
