While this morning was cool and damp a few minor nuisance chores inside the Castle were done. There has been a large piece of foam board laying around for several months waiting for a brilliant idea for its use. This is the thin stuff with foam in the middle and a layer of white cardboard on each side. It is not a brilliant idea but at last the foam board was used for some good. The medicine cabinet became the recipient of the properly trimmed foam board.
It will help with insulating the Castle a little. The cabinet back wall was measured and the foam board cut to fit tightly. Installation was ornery but finally achieved. The top two shelves got the foam board before the piece was used up. The top piece was real ornery and had to be cut into two pieces to get it onto the back wall. The middle shelf was more cooperative and allowed its foam board to crinkle a little and fit right in.
A check of the outside temperature in the bright sunshine showed that it was time to go wandering around.
Down at Conn Brown Harbor was a bunch of sunken boats shown in this blog a long time ago. Some authority over there has been cleaning out the boats slowly as money was made available. They are doing a good job, slowly. They do have to be careful to not rupture a tank with hydrocarbons in it and pollute the area. This is what it looked like before the work started.
This taken today shows the progress being made on cleaning up the leftover mess.
Back along hwy 361 the rain and high tides had left a muddy mess so a lot of walking around was not easy to do. However some cute little flowers were already blooming on some sedums growing in the area. Maybe winter is over finally.
And the final check out place is a public fishing area to the east of the Copano Bay Bridge. You can pull your vehicle out on the shell/sand areas and just get busy fishing. There is even a reasonable chance you will catch some decent fish there.
There were several folks in lawn chairs sitting in the sunshine reading while waiting for a great fish to strike the bait. Kicking back in the sunshine with a cool breeze drinking a beverage of choice seems like a pretty good way to try to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM
