Morning  Peace


Sickly Today


Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas

The OFM had a nagging stomach ache almost all day. We think he did not agree with something he ate yesterday. But as the day moved on along things got less bad so we think tomorrow will be an all clear day for running and playing in the hot humid area.

The morning was very calm weather wise so we tried to get in a walk at the waterfront area. The winds were negligible and the mosquitoes were only bad. We hoped to stay far enough from the grass and brush to skip most of the mosquitoes. It was not good enough.

The picture above shows how calm it was along the water. This is one of the stairs to assist wade fishing and yak launching near the campers on the bay front. Look carefully and you can see the oyster beds and sea grasses that waders have to contend with and the lack of wind to run the blood suckers off. We gave up trying for a nice walk.

Later in the afternoon we hopped into Sierra to go somewhere and got this pic of the dash read out.

We are glad we have good AC in Sierra and the Castle. It is definitely time to head north to grandkid land.

With the mosquitos too abundant and the heat and humidity being mean we chose to practice and learn more about using watercolor pencils. We have a not so great images adult coloring book about sea shells. This particular page is getting no intent of making the shells look real. It is all about blending, water brush control, and getting nice colors and color schemes education. Nice pictures will come later once the OFM can handle his tools properly.

The nice apple, cranberry salad with a grilled chicken breast made a good supper and seems to be helping the stomach misery get better. Maybe tomorrow we will be in better shape to run around trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Good colors!! Enjoy. And you can mess with adding water. Fun. Mosquitos are not fun. They used to not like me, and then it seemed, they changed from preferring my husband to preferring me. Fickle critters. I was not pleased. I always wonder if there's something I could eat that would make them not like me.

  2. Hope you are feeling better so you can continue having tooooo much fun with the Watercolour Pencils.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
