Some Visitors and A Quiet Day

I was up at 7:30 a.m. today and it was 43F (6C), bright and sunny. I didn't walk as far today as Ellie had said she'd be here around 10 a.m. or so to bring back my plate that I forgot on Superbowl Sunday. Around 10:30 she called and said they were running late so I went and sat outside and read for a while. Ellie, Jim, Dortha and Mark arrived around 12:15 p.m. or so and the ladies stayed with me while the guys went in search of photos of a fire they had seen on the way in to Goose Island SP. They didn't find it though. While they were gone we planned which geocaches we're going to look for this week. They didn't stay long as they were on their way to Port Aransas and Corpus Christi.

The rest of the day passed uneventfully, sitting outside and reading. Mid afternoon Gordon and I went for a walk in the flats across the road from the campground but only saw this great egret who flew in and perched on top of a tree.

Then we walked on to the boat ramp area where there were lots of brown and white pelicans and a lone great blue heron.

We reached a high of about 70F (21C) today. It was a beautiful day. We had a little wind come up this afternoon but nothing like we had in Port Lavaca.

  1. Such a nice place to be. When the weather is in your favor setting out must be the greatest! Love your pictures.
