This morning it was storms, thunder and heavy rain that woke me from a nice sleep. The pointer hand is on Rockport. After ten am the rain pretty well stayed away until late in the day as you will see later. The threatening cloud banks did keep Puddle Boat tied down on the picnic table.
The above picture was taken during my evening walk at the Rockport Beach area. Every time a serious look outside was taken; it was those kinds of clouds that kept Puddle Boat and Sightseer out of action.
Finally things cleared off enough to get down to the beach area for a decent walk. It was hot but not miserably so. Lots of folks were out enjoying the evening and playing in the water.
One lady was riding loops on a crank forward bicycle. They are particularly good for gentle social riding. As an exercise bike they will give your legs a lot of exercise. This lady was making very good time with the wind in the picture above. In to the wind she did not do as well. Maybe she did not realize she needed to shift down a few gears. At least she was out doing something fun.
Several sorts of boats were playing in the ski basin. Some were sail boats like these on this trailer.
Others were fishing craft or personal watercraft and even a couple of yaks. Last and least were two inflatable toy rafts. The small wind really made those folks work for their fun.
This next boat towed in two PWCs and stuck close while they were loaded on a trailer. This boat looked to be only about 23 feet long.
Notice all the horsepower on that boat. It is had for me to imagine any use for that much gas guzzling to get out fishing.
My walk was truncated to get into the Truck ahead of a rain squall. We made it back to the campground just in time. My body took up a nice position on the porch to watch the rain. A loud noise caught my attention. It was the awning of the trailer in the next picture partially collapsing from the weight of all the water trapped on top.
The owner was lucky the fabric did not rip through or the fasteners rip out of the trailer.
At least the walk was nice and made a nice finish to a day of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM
