Adventure Location: Mustang Island, Texas
We had a nice cool couple of days and the OFM went out to play at Mustang Island. We did a lot of checking things out. As expected with all the “progressive development” the area is very over populated and even more visitors than last year.
We found this camping mess at the base of the Packery Channel north jetty. They looked like they had been there for a long time and were not moving anytime soon.
The winds have been very strong lately and generally not pleasant. We found a white flower in a protected part of a sand dune to get this picture.
All the yellow flowers were getting shredded by the winds. This one poor little flower was showing its toughness so we got a decent picture in spite of the winds.
Quite a few pictures were taken of sand dunes but they have not yet been processed for presentation. If any of them come out nice we will put them in a later blog entry. Part of the trip effort was aimed at inspiration for more paintings. The OFM keeps wanting to do more paintings for the garbage can but he cannot seem to choose a topic yet.
Back down in Rockport this afternoon the fish were not biting but the clouds were showing off. It was a beautiful day with gorgeous water and fantastic blue skies. The clouds got all excited and started doing all sorts of acrobatics for us mere mortals fascination. Here is one of the acts.
It was the sand castle competition last weekend down at Port Aransas and the town was still very crowded today. In spite of the huge number of tourists in the town we managed to do pretty well at trying to have tooooo much fun.
