Good morning and welcome to Life By Grand Design. If you are a first time reader, so glad you stopped by. If you are a returning reader, so happy you came back! Today is a beautiful day in South Texas. The sun is shining and the birds are chirping. It is a pleasant 72 degrees. Today we will be reviewing an excursion we took on a Catamaran at South Padre Island, Texas.
A Catamaran is a well constructed, stable watercraft. The word "Catamaran" means "Logs tied together". The Catamaran are wider in build and waves typically are not a problem compared to other sailing boats. We can attest to its smooth sailing. They do come in many sizes from a small sailing boat to a much larger ship. Our Catamaran was 27 ft. long and 25 ft. wide. Her name was called The Southern Wave.
The music was a mixture of oldies to the newer genre. Taylor was so talented and truly added to the ambiance of the gentle sailing vessel.
Thank you Taylor for entertaining us ever so sweetly.
There is something magical about Dolphins. When I see them I feel as if I am five years old. My heart starts racing and the excitement of those beautiful creatures truly touch my heart. They are truly one of Gods most beautiful handiworks.

One thing about Texas that Roy and I truly love is the friendliness of the people. We could not help but wave back to the many people who offered a quick hello as we passed by their homes. The array of houses along the shore went from just plain adorable to off the charts gorgeous! It was nice to look at them and pretend for a moment.
It was fun doing a little day dreaming....
