Adventure Location: Lake Corpus Christi, Texas
Does anyone else consider airplanes to be canned virus? Yep right at five days after the Friday flight and the OFM is feeling “flu-ish”. He will probably be a wreck the next seven days. Hopefully Grandson Gavin did not catch anything from him.
For no good reason the Teams voted to go to Lake Corpus Christi today to do some outdoors walking and biking. We did get in a bit of walking but the blistered feet objected to very much exercise. It was up to 83 degrees F when we left and headed back to the Castle.
It had been forgotten that there is lots of miles of good roadside shoulders in the area for bike riding. All around Sinton is great road riding. Here is an example of the size of the shoulders on the road as well as how flat the road is for easy riding.
We made it into the State Park at Lake CC. The first stop was the necessities building on top of a hill overlooking the lake. My goodness the lake is very low. We decided to go over to the fishing pier to park for our meandering starting spot. The pier is water challenged for fishing now.
So the Meandering Team got busy looking around at all the exposed lake bottom. One of the first things we spotted was this critter making its way along the top of a concrete bulkhead.
Next we headed off through the bushes growing on the lake bottom. To our surprise there are hundreds of butterflies and moths occupying the bushes. They would fly up like a big cloud all around the Team and then start to settle back down on the bushes. It was really interesting to participate in this event. Here is a picture of the butterflies on the first bush.
Then we came to a bush that let us grab a shot of three (at least) butterflies on it.
Down closer to the water was this moth that was very pretty. It held very still for the picture to be taken.
By now the blisters were talking loudly, so the Team headed back to the Truck for lunch. The vote after lunch was to head on back to the Castle, which we did. The bright sun, warm day and cool breeze made for a fantastic day of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
