It was a nice ride around looking at flowers this afternoon. Originally it was to look for fishing carts to see what is available. There were a few that did not seem right for me. My concept is like a dolly for carrying loads. Something light and foldable that will carry an ice chest on the sand or pier or jetty. My need is for carrying only one rod and one small tackle box. Some water and food would be very nice also. Maybe something similar to a golf pull cart will work. We will see how it works out. It is also on my mind that it could carry photo equipment, water and food when my wanderings take me a good ways from the Truck.
While out looking around, it was noticed how nice the wildflowers were looking. They have exploded down here. All over the place are clusters of pretty flowers. Along the business 35 near Little Bay in Rockport are lots of flowers. The Truck was parked near the water where this bird was chasing lunch. The bush was full of beautiful pink blossoms with good fragrance.
The bird was ignoring the scenery in the serious business of finding lunch swimming by. During the few minutes that it took me to get ready, the bird had no luck catching anything.
The search for a good picture was on. A careful crossing of the highway put me into the esplanade with lots of flowers. Many pictures were taken to get the next two. The first is looking over to the Rockport Beach pavilion on the other side of Little Bay.
This next was taken back toward the Maritime Museum.
Now the sad news is that my camera is failing fast again. About a month ago it was noticed that it did not focus well on the left edge of the pictures any more. Today both the exposure and focus is less than the best on the left half of the entire picture. My budget is not really ready to purchase another camera just yet, so we will have to live with what the camera is behaving like for now.
However a camera or lack of a camera is no reason for me to quit trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
