Low Profile Day

Adventure Location: Del Rio, Texas

It is easy to tell that Spring Break has broken. Lots more vehicles on the road to already full locations. We are considering carefully about when to roll on to bigger adventures. Most likely around Mar. 18. Until then the Teams are trying to keep a low profile.

Today was very low profile. It got going as much as it could get going with another chopped brisket sandwich eaten down at Governors Landing day use area.



The view was a bit overcast but still really nice. We even had a parade of fishing boats coming by about every five minutes. Lots of money floating out there on the water in the cause of catching fish.



The OFM put out some effort at fishing after lunch. He stumbled his way down to the shore from the lunch spot and went to work trying to fool the bass. He had no luck because you have to be smarter than the bass to catch it. At least it was a pleasant fishing spot.



On the way out of the area heading to the Castle we got to travel through the Drive of Blossoms. Those are blackbrush blossoms and they will soon be finished blooming. They are dramatic and pretty when they are in full action.



And to end the “exciting “ day we had a huge sunset of dramatic effects.



Throw in naps late in the afternoon (think “big sandwich” stupor) and working on income tax as the likely big adventures for a few days. Still the nap part sounds like a good way of trying to have tooooo much fun during spring break week.
