We had to pull over to the side of the road and stop. Look what was coming straight at us. Good thing we were in our vehicle.
Now I'm not quite sure if the 18-wheeler was also helping herd the cattle but it was right behind them.
Only in Texas can you get too see a cattle drive, on a highway at that. LOL
See those tire marks in the sand to the left of the picture. Well, DH thought he had turned on the 4-wheel drive on our SUV so that we could go onto the beach. Guess what? Yep, he did not turn it on correctly and we got stuck in the sand. Arrgh! I tried to call our insurance towing service to send a tow truck to pull us out but they could not locate where we were. We told them at the end of the beach! I don't know what street we're on, we're at the end of the beach, by the pier at Matagorda State Park where the land ends into the ocean! No, we're not in Corpus Christi, we're at the end of the beach! In Matagorda State Park.! Don't you have GPS so that you can locate our cell phone signal! No I don't have a street name. OK, so you found the park on your map, why can't you help, because he said he needs a street name. Arrgh! Well, just follow your map to the end of the little black line until it runs into the ocean. Nope, he couldn't even do that. (I will never call our insurance towing service again, they were no help, again). Well, by this time we all started to feel that this trip had ended. We did get pulled out of the sand by a nice person (who knew how to operate his 4-wheel). We were starting to think that after all this our fishing luck was just not going our way but decided to go ahead and give it a try.
And guess what. DH got a hit on his pole and had to have my son give him some help to bring this little beauty in.
I think we need to get a bigger ice chest so that this does not happen again. LOL This was just the first of the catch. They caught a total of 10 fish. This of course being the biggest of the catch. We had to stop fishing for more as our cooler could not hold any more fish.
Catching all of the fish did make it a great fishing trip and made up for us getting stuck in the sand.
