When my back let go of the mattress this morning, the new site for the Team was already vacant. A quick check of it and a little rake work and it was moving time. We were moved and set up again at 10:01am.
This site is right in the middle of all the RVs. The one reserved for next winter is on the fringe of the campground so folks walking through the site should not be a problem.
Finally a decision was made to go to Lake Corpus Christi State Recreational Area. (Lake Corpus) The intention was to ride the hills there. The hills are not high but they are steep and frequent. It will work out your riding legs.
As you known by now seldom does anything happen as planned. Arriving at the park gave me a scene of great beauty. Spring flowers have started their show. It turned into a walking and camera trip instead of bike riding. About half the park was walked before my knees hollered UNCLE.
The above picture is one of the lakeside day use areas. There are at least eight of them. In addition to this beautiful area there are trails wandering all over the place. Here is the entrance to one of them.
Near the start of that path is a place where the lake has a slough that goes into the woods. Some turtles were being lazy bums in there as you can see.
Over in a section on another peninsula are some more varieties of flowers. A few bluebonnets are starting to show up in among the other flowers.
At another location down the road were some flowers that might be what is called firewheels. They were very spectacular to see.
Keep in mind that the aromas emitting from all these flowers can make you drunk with the sweetness of the fragrance. This is really a great time of the year for this area. In about two months we can all check out Tamia’s site for the flower explosion in New England. We bloggers cover the country.
In case you have not had enough scenery, here is a yucca in bloom framed by wildflowers. It was one of many in the area. This is in the water only camping section of the park. A great area for self contained rigs like Comfort Castle.
Lest you think it is all beautiful, here is a picture of the road in parts of the park. Thick brush is typically hiding lots of javelina, white tail deer and armadillos. An armadillo sounds like a small bull dozer coming when they roam in the night.
Hopefully you have enjoyed the picture tour from the Team as we were out trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
