The morning has been busy getting a part ordered for the Castle repairs. Some of the repairs are a new window crank for a kitchen window that has failed and a few cabinet door screws have worked loose and will be replaced with nuts and bolts. As the Castle ages, it is an early 2005 model, and gets road worn; replacements and repairs are needed.On the road yesterday a couple of pictures came out not to blurry. Picture taking while bouncing down the road is always tricky to accomplish. This first one is of the Pecos River where hwy 90 crosses it. That is Mexico in the far background.
Much later as we neared Corpus Christi it was noticed that a lot of the crops were harvested or ready to be harvested. This field of milo was looking good and ready for harvest. Many of the cotton fields were well into blooming. Maybe the farmers can make a little money this year.
Wandering the shore line of the bay yielded another first for me. This is the first time that I can remember seeing purple seaweed in this area.
The nuts and bolts purchased came in nice small packages. It struck me funny that the origin of manufacture was written in Spanish that the product came from China. It must be the global economy at work. Even Mexico is out sourcing nowadays.
And finally late this evening a bit of spoon tossing down at the wind blasted breakwater resulted in the first fish caught in quite a while. It was a very undersize redfish but at least it was a fish. A nearby egret tried to get to my fish but lost that battle. The fish went back into the water to grow up.
The OFM body has been tired today and two, yes two, nice long naps were taken. My head is already sleepy again as this is written. So tonight will likely be a long sleep and an awakening at whenever my eyes open. Being rested is important when you need to get out trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
