Lots Of Mosquitoes


Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas

Date: May 17, 2023

We have no idea where lots of the day disappeared but it was another busy day. Taking a walk was a big loss. We went to three different locations and the mosquitoes were impossible to tolerate for walking at all three. So tonight we get just stories that go with a picture we took during the day. This is a new area to the OFM on where to stand for the best pictures on scenery shots.

The GISP pier has some left over pilings from the original pier standing near to the new pier. The worn top of one piling has some shoreline vegetation growing nicely in the top of the piling. We wonder how well that will last this summer.

Another wild shot was made from the pier tonight as the sun was going down. There was a barge tow going along the Intracoastal Waterway about four miles away and the setting sun was reflecting very golden and bright from the tug and barges. It was interesting to see. The photo was taken at maximum zoom from on the pier while the OFM hand held the camera and wiggled slightly.

Both of the above pictures came about because the OFM was out there trying for a spectacular sunset picture. Well it was a lot plainer picture we got but overall it is a nice shot that we will be checking on getting some better ones in the future.

Tomorrow we will be back at the mosquito war. No telling what we will find for having tooooo much fun.
