What a winter day it was! The morning was warm and the sun was bright. After the OFM got moving and ready it was off to fishing time. The temperature was acceptable for sun tanning and fishing. See Sierra’s temperature report.
Not bad for winter time. Only one fish was caught at the fishing hole but the pelicans seemed to have finished eating and were resting watching the OFM fishing.
A nice older fellow stopped by and we talked for a long time. He was 82 and had decided to make Rockport his home for the rest of his life. So his RV travel days were over. He was planning on taking up saltwater fishing so we did a lot of fishing talking. It was delightful.
The sun was bright enough that the OFM got a bit of sun burn on his body. The tee shirt he was wearing was plenty of clothing and he sweated through it in a couple of places. Love this kind of winter weather.
Later we were over in Aransas Pass messing around. As we headed down the main street to a roundabout the traffic halted. Some more wind turbine propeller blades were being brought in from the unloading docks near Port Aransas. We got to see the action from close up. The trucks had to use EVERY inch of roadway to make the turn around the roundabout. It was some very good driving going on. The regular traffic was halted to make room for the trucks. The “show” was well worth the wait.
It made for a great day of trying to have tooooo much fun.
