For Father’s Day Weekend, we took a trip to Corpus Christi, TX to celebrate one of my uncle’s birthday.
When we got there, we drove to the docks at Pork Aransas for a boat ride. My cousins set up the boat ride as a present for their dad’s birthday.
We went sailing with a handsome sailor and his wife (Captain Tom & Linda). No, really his boat company is called the “Handsome Sailor Yacht Charters.” We had about 20 passengers on the yacht, close family members and friend celebrating with my uncle.
We started off using engine power to get us to the middle of the gulf, then we turned off the engine (which startled me at first) and switched to sail power. Capt. Tom let my sisters and I help put up the sails, with some guidance, of course. We had a great time! We didn’t see any dolphin this time, maybe next time.
Everyone took pictures with Daddy, looking sharp in his Nigerian native attire. Check out my mom and dad matching. They’re too cute!
Message to my Daddy:
Dear Daddy, thank you for being the man of God that you are. You are wise and you are unselfish with your knowledge. Thank you for all that you’ve sacrificed for us. I love you, Daddy. Happy Father’s Day!!
The kids’ section at the church had a cute airplane mural on the wall!
It was a fun little weekend trip. It made me realize I don’t need a full week for a vacation trip. 2-3 days is more than sufficient for a little getaway. If my car is up for challenge, I see some weekend roadtrips in my future. Of when I don’t feel like driving (which is often), I can take a Megabus.
