Rockport and Goose Island State Park

Another hot, humid morning for walking on the beach! Just me and the shore birds.

This morning we took the ferry from Port Aransas to Aransas Pass and headed into Rockport. We stayed in Rockport two years ago when we were here. We stopped at the Chamber of Commerce and picked up some brochures on RV Parks and drove along the shoreline and took some more bird photos. There are so many birds there! We stopped for lunch at Taco Bell in Rockport. Then we drove out to Goose Island State Park which is just north of Rockport and decided that we’d like to spend a week there. They have sites that back on the water so we’ll head over there on Sunday for a week. We stopped by the Raintree RV Park where we stayed in 2005 but they are full over Christmas so we’ll have to look elsewhere. We drove back through Corpus Christi instead of taking the ferry and stopped at the H.E.B. grocery store and picked up a few items.

When we got back, I again took my book and headed for my lawn chair.

Just before sunset we went to a spot near us to take some sunset photos. The sunset wasn’t great but there was a heron right in front of the sun so got a few photos there. When we came back the grackles had gathered in front of the camp hosts site. Looks like a remake of the Alfred Hitchcock movie!
