Rides and Tales

Observations From Behind Bars

Shoreline Drive

with one comment

Along about 11:00, Saturday morning, Bill and I pulled to the side of Shoreline Drive  which runs along the marina  that is across the street from downtown Corpus Christi. 

I’d spotted a dolphin swimming inside the breakwater,  a thing I’d never seen or heard of before, and wanted to see if I could get photo.

The place I shot from is one of several miradores that are placed along the drive.

Mira (MEE-dah) is a Spanish word that means “look”  a place to look from is called a mirador (MEE-dah-thoad), or as some of us make it, “mirrador”.

As you might guess, the dolphin didn’t cooperate  by swimming closer to the sea wall.

The day didn’t end up to too snazzy, but it was, at least, another morning in paradise.
