There wasn't a whole lot of knitting done during that time. My trip included vacation time -- camping on the Texas Gulf coast and visiting my sister in San Antonio -- and a conference in Austin.
We camped for two nights at Goose Island State Park, near Rockport, and spent most of one day on the beach in Port Aransas. It was a gorgeous day -- sunny, about 85, windy --and the water, which during the summer is frequently a little too warm, was the perfect temperature. The day was also just right for sunburn. It didn't seem hot, and our spray-on sunscreen apparently blew right away. I had stripes of sunburn on the my right arm and leg, and both shins. But it was worth it. Port Aransas is one of my favorite places - a beach town with absolutely no pretense, a beach you can drive on, and great seafood.

A flock of pelicans, looking for lunch. We saw more pelicans on this trip than ever before.
My niece, helping to deflate the self-inflating air mattresses (which inflate a lot easier than they deflate).
Unfortunately, I have no good pictures of the San Antonio part of the trip or of the conference. I think I was too busy having fun!
Next time: knitting!
