Teams Location: Rockport, Texas
The day was hot but nice. A bit of road trip was in order so the Truck took off for places unknown. However when we arrived it was at Light House Lakes Park outside of the City of Aransas Pass. A lot of work has been done to enhance the park. One especially nice feature is the new gazebos and picnic tables they have added. Here is one of the gazebo structures.
As you can see there are information signs mounted on the railings. Only one gazebo set was reviewed for now. They had a LOT of information on them. Here are a few selected ones to tease you into going down to see them yourself.
LHL, as Light House Lakes is known down here, is a very complex environmental area as you can find out from the signs. It is also very easy to get lost in there and have a lot of difficulty finding the right waterways to follow back to your starting point.There are a good number of predator birds in the area. The osprey is a fine bird to watch when it is on the hunt. It is amazing how large the fish can be that the osprey can carry off to eat.
The shore birds are also around in great quantity. The best viewing is by kayak all through the marsh. However, some excellent viewing can normally be had right here in the park.
A good thing for birders is that the birds are very accustomed to having folks nearby and will stay in place for pictures most of the time.
Sunset was quite picturesque tonight so a lot of battery juice was used taking pictures. This is one of them.
Sitting on a bench visiting a new acquaintance and taking pictures like the above of the sunset is a very good way of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
