Summer 2002

balloon guy

6/01/02 - Like the Swallows Returning to Capistrano...

Amazin' Walter - the Balloon Guy - has resumed his duties on the deck over at Blackbeards'... so you know it must be summer! Amazin' helps keep the kiddies from whining too much about the wait for a table at this popular SPI eating spot.


Puddles! 6/27/02

We know that today's steady downpour wasn't much fun for tourists seeking sunny beaches -- but it was just what the doctor ordered for local flora and fauna.... especially since the area is currently observing mandatory water conservation measures.

baby turtles

Babies! 7/1/02

I was on my way to give a sand castle lesson when I noticed a crowd forming a ways up the beach. The event was the release of a batch of baby sea turtles... aren't they cute??!! I think the hope is that they will come back to SPI beaches someday to lay their eggs.

bull shark

Shark! (Pt.2)

Look at those muscles! As I understand it, these local women celebrated their June birthdays by treating themselves to an off-shore fishing excursion. The pictured bull shark weighed in somewhere around 180 lbs and was caught in local waters aboard Murphy's Law.

Tanja sculpts sand!

Tanja - 8/7/02

Some six years ago Tanja was an exchange student from Germany, living in Corpus Christi. She recently came back to SPI to pay a quick visit to her "Dad" - Fred Mallett and was introduced by him to the art of sand sculpture. Nice job, Tanja!

"Here is a picture of my son Austin (5-years-old) with a new haircut two weeks before school. He kept it for a few days, but needless to say he sported a shaved head for his first day back to school."

Submitted by proud papa Stan Hulse of Toucan Graphics. That is one cute kiddo you got yourself there, Stan!


Fire! 08/02

"This is a shot from the Miss Teen USA Pageant. They hired me to build a beach fire next to the bay during sunset. The same place where the Garth Brooks stage was set back in October. Tough job huh? This was the rehearsal blaze."
