Sunlight Playing


Piles Everywhere

Adventure Location: Rockport, TX.
Adventure Date: 1/14/2018

Two days ago the OFM had on shorts and a tee shirt as we went to the Rockport Beach to find out what all the clanging and banging and roaring diesel engines was about. It was a very nice day and folks were out enjoying the winter weather.

The gulls, terns and pelicans were all having parties all up and down the beach area. We were able to get a neat shot of them swarming the area near the saltwater pool. They were doing a pretty good job of “decorating" the parked vehicles.

After riding around a bit we finally figured out what the noise was about. There was new piles of sand/dirt in strategic location all over the Park. It seems the Navigation District is in the process of putting back the dirt/sand that hurricane Harvey removed. From the looks of the loads of sand it will be even better than ever before.

For equipment operators that like playing in the sand it looks like this will be the place for trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Hope all is well, Barney. I guess it is really cold down there, too? Plenty cold here in DFW area. I do check on you every day!

  2. This reminded me of Seaside, Oregon. On the 4th of July groups dig bunkers in the sand to act as wind blocks while watching the fireworks. On the 5th of July, the bulldozers come out and fill in the bunkers. Both are fun to watch.
