It had been a few days since we checked out the Lighthouse Lakes Park so we headed on down there this afternoon. WOW a lot had changed. This park was severely damaged by Hurricane Harvey. Other more important things for repair had priority with good reason. Suddenly this park had gotten high enough in the list of things to do to have a nice bunch of work done to it. It does not look like they are through yet so it likely will be a very nice place again when the rebuild is finished. With all that said let us take a look at the progress.
This is the entrance sign to let you know you are here.
The viewing platforms are well under way and readily usable as they are now. The boat and light house pictures were taken while leaning against the platform pilings to steady the OFM from the strong winds today.
Over there a looooong way across the marsh is the namesake Lydia Ann Lighthouse. We are amazed that the little pocket camera zoom worked this well, especially with the OFM holding it in the wind.
All sorts of boats come up this channel to reach the Intracoastal Waterway or Conn Brown Harbor. On any given day and time all sorts of boats use this channel. Here is a work boat coming in from the days duties.
And this large pleasure sailboat was making very good time in the strong wind.
Many small things caught our attention as we walked the length of the park. The most interesting to the Teams was this picnic table full of shells someone had collected. There were all sorts of them.
This pile of shells reminded the OFM he needs to get busy and assemble his beach combing kit for the cool weather times coming up soon. He has to get in some beach combing type of meandering. It is always lots of fun. Sierra has turned out to be a good beach driving truck too. It is nice to float on top of the sand instead of trying to plow through it.
Driving and walking the beaches is a great way of trying to have tooooo much fun.
