Welder RV Park
Granny J (http://walkingprescott.blogspot.com/) has done it to me again. Her territory is very limited in size, but she manages to find something new nearly every day. She is a living example how it pays to pay attention to what is around you. Check out the picture of a feral couch in her blog today. Go Granny Go.
The last of the Christmas presents were mailed today from Rockport. Some fishing was also planned, but the wind was way to strong. At least some good entertainment was provided by this gentleman and his pup. That little short legged pup could really get after that ball when thrown. He did not have good brakes when he got to the ball. Each time he over ran the ball and several times did some very impressive acrobatics. He was way to quick to get a picture of him on the chase.
It seems that the modification to my golf irons did the trick. When tried out on the practice field here in the park, they worked much more accurately than before. The one inch cut from the butt end did cause a couple of yards lose in distance. The four iron was only around 183 yards now. It used to be a little over 185, but not nearly so accurate. That pattern held up all the way down through my ten iron. The wedges have not been tried yet. My “golf game” needs all the help it can get.
The unofficial trail that has been getting my footprints on it in the park lately got a closer look today thanks to Granny J’s blog reminding me to pay attention. This part of the trail is where something was laid underground parallel to the highway.
As one walks along the trail, there are different and ordinary things to see. When one pays closer attention there is more rewards than just good exercise. Every now and thing something would run through the grass to keep my attention sharp. There is a ditch between the road and the trail. Who looks at dry ditches??? Any person who wants to see more of what is happening in the area. Check out all the different footprints captured in the dry mud of the ditch bottom. There were at least deer, skunk, mouse, birds and more that had visited the mud at one time or another.
The trail winds back into the park and comes out a little past the alligator pond. It is a nice pond with two known alligators in it. The fishing pier gets some use from the looks of the fishing lines left there.
The water near the shore has a covering of duck weed and reeds. What else hides in that dark stained water?????
Comfort Castle was moved to another campsite. It is a good bit more private than the first one. Here is a picture looking out toward the road and golf course from the new site.
Maybe paying close attention will yield some more excitement while trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
