And it feels sooo good! It has warmed up to jacket weather. The sun is out. Beautiful blue skies with fluffy white clouds. The smell of saltwater and the sounds of many birds calling to each other. Who could ask for more? Sigh! This is wonderful!
I have been sleeping in because...well, why not?...the motorhome's cold and the mornings have been dark and dreary. But, not this time. For once, the sun was peeking through the curtains and there was no sound of rain or wind..hmmm...time to check it out. It is a good thing we got up early because Dan would not have seen this gorgeous sunrise. As soon as he showed it to me, I was dressed and out the door!
|Sunrise over Mustang Island|
The Naval Base campground is split in two. Both areas are located near the bay. We have a nice view of the bay from our windows. From the boat launch/dock area, we can see the bridge to Padre Island and Mustang Island.
We have been making up for two months of lost outdoor time in the last five days. The cats are outside at least once a day. They start begging to go out around 10 am. In the afternoons, they pretend they have not been outside and start begging again. What a bunch of smarty-cats!
Here are a few of the coastal birds we have been seeing on our walks. I never tire of watching the Great Blue Herons and the Great White Egrets.
|Great Blue Heron|
|In-sync Pelicans ~ 1-and-2-and-3.....|
During one of our first walks, Dan spotted these guys near the marsh area. We were able to get a little closer before they started looking nervous.
|Black-crowned Night Heron|
|Lesser Yellowlegs fishing for dinner|
Travel day tomorrow so I need to start prepping for moving then it is time for some sewing.
