More Water Please

 

Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas

Today's Date: 6-15-2022



It has been another rough migraine day. But research on the internet revealed the OFM had noted way to light of an ibuprofen dosage that he should have been using. So around 1400 we got a proper dosage into him and he is doing better finally.

We did get out to the Municipal Park trail this morning for some strolling and met up with old friend Rodney. We sat and tried to wear out a bench for an hour or so.

We both had noticed the ponds were down about two feet in spite of the windmill driven water fill line flowing pretty well all the time.



Back near the far back of the park there is a nice natural surfaced trail for walking also. We seldom walk it because the OFM ankles like the surfaced main trail much better for his old decrepit ankles. As you can see from this picture it is a nice trail to roam a bit.





More news for today is the city has been working well on getting the roads near the campground re-topped this year. They are moving on along at a good speed and seem to be doing a better than usual job of it also.



With a bit of luck the OFM will have a better day of migraine treatment tomorrow. He needs to work on having tooooo much fun again.

  1. Ah geez. Well, glad the ibuprofen is helping at any rate. And that you had a good walk and visit along the way. Where IS that water coming from? Just pumping up from the water table? Surely not the city water supply of potable water.

    1. The best I can guess is the windmill was the old farm water source an eon or two ago. It is noted in the park that it is not to be considered human potable. Our dirt elevation at the park is about 13 feet. The park is only about a mile or so from the saltwater bay named Lil Bay.

    2. Um..maybe salty, huh. Would be interesting to know what's thriving in there and what's not. Hope you have had a better day today!

  2. Could the LED lighting be giving you a headache? They didn't stay long at our house.

    1. I will research on the LED lighting I put in about four years ago.. The headaches started in 1972.

    2. I understand what you're saying. We get migranes here also. Any possible cause is considered suspect. After or during we try to think what may have triggered this one. It's never the same cause it seems. Staying up too late, too much brightness in the eyes, not enough fluids, ate something, etc. etc. Good health to you, OFM, so you may travel on.

  3. I know that I've mentioned before about adding Caffeine to your diet as a way of fighting those Migraines. That would help you find a better way of having tooooo much fun.
    Be Safe and Enjoy the new pavement.

    It's about time.

    1. Thank you for your caffeine suggestion. I carefully under doctor care decaffeinated about forty years ago and that cut my migraine attacks down by about 90 percent at that time.
