Spring break miscellany, part I

Spring is my favorite time of year. I like staying home during the kid's week off from school planting flowers and gardens with them, going to the movies and out to lunch, spending time with friends and family, driving to the beach for the day... the list goes on and on.

We have done all of the above this week during spring break. Perhaps the most interesting thus far has been the trip to the beach. I could inundate you with pictures of the kids running in the sand and jumping through the waves, but I've done that enough. This time I want to share the bizarre and interesting sights from the beach.
Portuguese man-of-war with its tentacles

Another one without tentacles
Good ole' American oil wells pop up ALL OVER the Bolivar Peninsula (and vicinity) just pumping away, and a Cardinal towing sign

Remnants of a gas station ruined during Hurricane Ike (but it still shows up on the GPS)
Some of the many nails we found around my friend's rebuilt beach cabin

Part II - Tomorrow we get to spend the day out of town visiting relatives and celebrating my nephew's first birthday party.  Please check back later.

What have you done over spring break this year?
