Blue Claw

For those of you who were hoping for a blue claw, hope no more. I would like to have seen the rest of this crab, but alas I only found a claw. You may call me clueless, if you must, but do not call me clawless. Or silly. Photo taken on Copano Bridge Pier, Texas.

Fishing in Port Aransas, Texas, was quite a bit of fun and I caught some big salt water catfish which I promptly threw back. At one point this huge ship was making it’s way into the Gulf and was much more impressive than the bony catfish. A quick google search:

Since 1927

This image was found in a small town in Texas. I don’t know what it might have been but on the lower left one can still see ‘since 1927’, suggesting this was once a store front. It also has the look of a saloon, or even a restaurant. Thoughts?
