A Day With a Friend

We must have been pretty tired after our day at the National Seashore and Monday Night Football because we didn't wake up until almost 8:30 this morning. With a later start than usual, I was a little disorganized this morning.

In spite of that, Karon and I decided a day out was just what we both needed, so I picked her up and away we went. I wanted to check on the location of a geocache that we've looked for 3 times and couldn't find. I had emailed the owner and got a response back with a strong hint about the placement of the cache and a request to let them know if wasn't there. Nope, it's just not there. But there was a pretty good photo op with this boat surrounded by birds. Do you think they have some fish on board?

I'd heard about a birding area in Port Aransas, so we thought today would be a good day to check it out. It is the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center , Here's the boardwalk and observation deck

There are a couple of resident alligators in the area

We saw several turtles
And, of course, birds!

This is a very interesting area, I'd love to come back again and spend more time.

After leaving Jim home with no transportation for several hours, it was time to head back to Rockport. On the way back, we stopped at another geocaching location, where Karon logged her first sighting on her own! Congratulations, Karon!
