Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas
The hot weather is back my sweaty body said to me this morning. Today was the day the Castle got to move to a site that gives afternoon and evening shade. $hade is very important during the summer sun and heat in Texas. It also $aves $erious money on the AC. It was only a one site over move but the cool air of the last four days was gone by the time my bed let go of me. The AC turned on about 10 am and will likely run until sometime in October. This is probably our home until after Labor Day.
Chores were the force of the day. My two fishing rods were brought out and the older reel cleaned up and new line put on it. The new reel bought in Deming was spooled with new line also and installed on my other rod. The saltwater tackle box was brought out of deep storage and checked for its needs.
Later in the day a trip to Lowe’s in Aransas Pass netted some more rigid insulation foam for some more additions to the insulation of the Castle. Again to save more money is the purpose.
While out and about a stop was made at the marina area and the fishing rods given a work out. They both worked very well. Inspection of the tackle box revealed a serious lack of a couple of proven lures. Of course it is a really undesirable chore to have to go to Tackle Town and purchase the needed lures. However somebody needs to do it and I am man enough to handle the task. HE HE HE
There is a tourist shop on the main road through town that keeps a pet out by the street. Finally a picture of it was acquired by taking my life in my hands and getting close enough to get eaten. It requires careful maneuvering and quick movements but the goal was achieved.
Now all this activity had me somewhat tired so some rest was in order. The store had even thought of that and provides a place to rest. That is very nice of them.
Tonight has been cutting up foam and fitting into place. With some good luck that chore should be finished sometime tomorrow.
There are lots of fireants in this area. Some ant bait was purchased when the Team was at Lowe’s. As anyone ever attacked by them will tell you, killing fireants is a great way to try to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
