Ran down to a very empty gulf coast over the weekend; looking to de-stress and tune out for a bit. The weather was perfect and I've never seen the water so clear. It did help to recharge a bit, though I could use a week (or a month).

On a related note, this live oak tree is nearly 2000 years old. The last time I saw it I was a young man. It gave me great solace to see it again and spend a short time among it and its daughters.

@rho I love the Texas coast. Maybe after my surgery, the spouse and I can go down there.

@Tay0 I love it as well! A lot of folks don't realize it, but there are some real gems down there. Best of luck with the surgery.

@rho I grew up near Stacy Park in Travis Heights. It breaks my heart to see all of the live oaks cut down to make room for mcmansions in my old neighborhood. I don't know how old they were but they were huge. I'm a fan of the live oak.

@Tay0 Yeah it kills me to see the big ones go for mediocre, relatively temporary development. Hundreds of years gone in a few moments.
