A MOUSE TRAP PLACED ON TOP OF YOUR ALARM CLOCK WILL PREVENT YOU FROM ROLLING OVER AND GOING BACK TO SLEEP AFTER YOU HIT THE SNOOZE BUTTON
After the mouse trap bit me, a trip to Bay Area Park for some peaceful scenery seemed appropriate. The boardwalk there was vacant so the opportunity to show my readers about it was taken. The entry is covered by trees to make a dramatic start.
As you walk out to the gazebos you are surrounded by swampy grass and water. The water hyacinths have really taken over in the last couple of weeks. As you approach the first gazebo you can see across a wide part of Armand Bayou at a bend. Later in the day there will be lots of yakkers out in this area. It was as hazy as it looks in this picture. Hot and humid and hazy.
Among the swamp grasses is morning glory vines. The blooms are rather nice in the morning light don’t you think. The fragrances were very pleasant from all the different swamp blossoms in among the grasses,
After leaving the boardwalk, my path continued on around to the launch area. Just before the launch area was this wooded picnic area that has been my lunch spot several times in the past. Today it was already 83 degrees at 8 am so this spot is a little warm now.
As my walk approached where the truck was parked, the kid playground area yielded this nice picture.
At least two family groups were setting up for big feeds and fun. The kids of all sizes were aver at the ball fields having a rip roaring good time .
At the launch site there was a couple heading out to play with the wild life like birds, turtles and hopefully not the alligators. The water is actually a dirty green/ brown and not very appealing for me to play in. They looked and sounded like they were about to have a lot of fun.
This afternoon and evening the threatening weather kept me close to home. If the traffic on the road in front of the campground is any indication, then every place for fun was very crowded. The loud traffic indicates that all of the Houston area was out running around alllllllll afternoon. A few emails and a small pastel painting and a short nap took care of the afternoon and early evening. Tomorrow all the folks will be back in the work environment and I wil try to have tooooo much fun for them and me. The OFM
