Rio Grande Gorge, New Mexico


Nice Day


Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas

Today's Date: 5-12-2022

The morning walk went very well and brisk. And then we hit the Beach Park and did some fishing with no success.

Not much excitement today but we did get over to Portland Tx and Academy to look at some “walking “ shoes. We chose to keep on with the Merrells we have been wearing for years. We actually left Academy without buying anything. Next door to Academy is a nice Walmart that is normally better stocked than the Rockport one. We finally found a new rug to replace the worn out one at the do everything table in the Castle. Now we should be good for another ten years.

After supper we went to the Beach Park to see what needed a picture taken. We did find a couple. The Beach Park has a very nice bird sanctuary area. A nice bird watching shelter is placed just right to see most of the sanctuary area with the mounted viewing scope.

At the entrance ramp is a nice picture of several of the bird types we have here.

While up in the shelter this evening we got a couple of nice pictures. This first one is of the area back toward the boat ramp. This shows the wetlands part of the sanctuary.

This next picture is a very small part of the general nesting and romantic encounters area. The odd part to the OFM is that every now and then ALL the birds suddenly fly up into the air and mill around for a few minutes then settle back down and get paired up again. This picture shows about ten percent of the birds involved.

Even though we had nothing really exciting happen, it was a wonderful warm breezy day for trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Looks and sounds like a good drama days can be very good days.

  2. Being able to Safely walk in nature nd Enjoy all its beauty is a great way for having tooooo much fun.

  3. Now this looks like MY kind of day of having way too much fun.:-)
