Laundry was number one on the agenda this beautiful morning. The good news is that Bay Wash Laundry is two blocks from one of the public piers on the bay front. So while the laundry washed, the Camera Team went looking for pictures. We even found a couple.
As we approached the pier the morning sun was doing a great job of trying to evaporate the entire Gulf of Mexico. The reflection from the water was very strong. The wood pier is the private pier for the motel just behind where the Team was standing.
We walked along the shore toward the public pier enjoying the many different reflections that the sun and water was generating. Looking back at the pier at one point gave us this great view of the interaction of the wind ripples on the water and the reflected image of the pier.
A few more feet and we were looking across a nice area toward the Rockport boat harbor. It would have been great to be out playing in a yak with water this calm. Later in the day the wind got high and made this area a maelstrom.
We made the walk out to the end of the pier. The tide was low so we could see a few critters crittering around on the bottom of the area. A camera shy egret stood guard at the end of the pier. That was one elusive bird to try to photograph.
On the way back to shore a reflection of one of the many palm trees in the area was interesting. This is actually right side up. It is a neat picture in our opinion.
Back at the laundry the drudgery of laundry was finally finished.
Speaking of finished, let us finish the mystery tool identifications.
This tool was about 20 inches long and the foot part seems to have a pivoting gadget on it. Good luck my friends. Hopefully we will have an answer soon.
Getting neat pictures of reflections is another good way of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM
