Lydia Ann Channel
Lighthouse, one of
the more prominent
landmark in Port Aransas.
After driving around the small town, we settled on a restaurant that Terence had eaten before. The restaurant, Beach and Station Street Grill, offered Southern style cuisine like Gumbo, Clam Chowders, Grilled shrimp sald, Po' Poys, crab stuffed shrimp, grouper Ponchantrain and Seabass in garlic and Blackend Red Snapper. There were about 8 tables and half of them were occupied with holiday makers. The restaurant's decoration were pretty sparse but the menu was long and we need help from the waiter to order the good food. We started with half a dozen raw oysters to shared between Terence and I since Stephen do not take them. For the main menu, Terence ordered the Shrimp Gumbo, Stephen had Long John Silver's fish and chips while I settled on flounder and shrimps on rice. It took some half an hours when our main menu arrived. It was a good choice all around. My fried plate with huge shrimps and huge flounder, all cooked just right. The flounder was a large of fish which had been carefully grilled so they remained extremely moist inside. The shrimps were succulent and juicy. Guess from Stephen's empty plate, I can tell that his fish and chip were just as nice.Terence's cup of Gumbo had a nice spice and was full of sausage, shrimp and crayfish. It was so nice that he encored on a second helping.
Having filled our stomachs we headed towards our hotel, Residence Inn Corpus Christi, to take a nap. Along the way we headed to a nearby Walmart to stock up on sinkers, hooks and Apollo hooks, hoping to hook bigger fish in round two of our planned 3 fishing sessions.
