Our morning walk was in the back-country unmaintained part of the county park. The last time we were back here was a few years ago and once every five years seems to be a good interval. Just thick Texas brush country.
Near a camper in the regular part of the park was some succulent getting some blooms ready to explode.
We do not recall ever seeing this species of succulent blooming before so it might be interesting to see what happens.
Just over by the water faucet, these two new flowers burst on in glory today. They are not quite the size of a dime but they showed a lot of “I'm beautiful” attitude so we had to grab a picture of them.
In another part of the brush this succulent seemed to be on its way to dying but you can never tell with these plants. They are a hardy bunch for sure.
Over in the tall large leafed prickly pear cactus was this old bird nest snuggled in amongst the thorny pads. We best that the bird that made it was a tough old bird. Any predator that tried to climb to get the nest would likely have leaked it drinking water/blood from many spots on its body afterward.
And most importantly here is the Castle and Sierra practicing getting hooked up for tomorrow's move to the state park.
We want to use the 120 volt air compressor to top off the tires and the vacuum cleaner to get a few cubic yards of blown sand out of the rig. Without all that sand inside the Castle we will likely get better fuel mileage.
After a bit more than a month here in this area we are heading north to a new area for trying to have tooooo much fun.
