Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas
The campground expansion started today. The plan is to double the number of sites by October. It they get it done, a site for me for the winter is assured. If they do not then my body will be in the Castle where ever it goes.
While out wandering around drowning lures, it was noticed a rather large log had been hauled out of the bay. From the drag marks it must have been a pretty good sized piece of equipment that hauled it out. Here is what it looked like as the Truck parked near.
The mussels had been multiplying heavily from the looks of it. Apparently it had been in the water a long time.
Since the log was next to the wooden pier, it seemed like a good time to walk out on the pier and enjoy the scenery.
From the pier looking back at the log you can get a better feel for how large that chunk of tree actually is. That is the Truck on the right.
Back over at the boat ramp, the authorities have put up some signs telling of which area is for what sport and the rules so we can all play safely. Rockport does a really good job of making a place for everyone to have fun in an area designed for the sport.
The Little Bay area map is clear and well done. The blue area is the large area for fast boats. The red area is some very shallow area. The yellow is along the docking areas where a boat wake can really do a lot of damage.
The rules for the Little Bay area seem reasonable to me.
The ski basin area is well designed and all the fast boats have their own place to run fast and show off. It is bordered by the west side of the Rockport Beach Park. Picnic tables, rest rooms and shade shelters are in good supply for the publics comfort.
The wind was much more gentle today tan for the last few weeks. The continuous cloud cover was gone and the sun very bright. The highest temperature seen on my thermometer today was 89. By 7 pm tonight it was down to 81 with a gentle breeze. Perfect for trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
