Where I stayed
Lighthouse RV Park
Well, for the first time in weeks, we got lost. I mis-entered info into the phone and it was sending us to another Lighthouse RV Park in Spain! Well no, not really. It was sending us about fifty miles further north to Bay City. Thanks to Lynnie's map reading skills we turned around in time to save us sixty or so miles of so-called "turnaround time"
This park is directly on Lavaca Bay. Shorty's front end looks out over it. We haven't explored yet, but there's a half-mile long walkway over the marsh that abuts the bay. Photos should clear that up. Great WiFi here too... saves me a lot of time.
Enroute, we crossed Aransas Bay, near Corpus Christi, both via bridge and ferry. It's only about a ten or twelve mile trip. Our first ferry trip since we were in Ireland; not as scenic, but easily as efficiently done. The traffic here is fairly heavy, but having driven Shorty for nearly three thousand miles, it's not a problem. Neither rain, snow, wind nor "fine individuals" driving has made it too difficult. I have this faith-thing that always sees me through.
We'll go out for a bit and check things out and be right back...
Thanks for waiting. We did go on a walk over the walkway and in spite of the wind, saw a few sights. The birds that I had guessed were storks, don't appear to be. I discovered that it is the Ibis. Never saw one before, but there you go... It's interesting that when I looked at the photo closely, I could see a shrimp in it's beak. You may have to pause the slideshow and look closely, but it is there. Cool! More tomorrow. Thanks again for checking in and call or send an email to let us know how thing are in the forbidding Far North... from here anyway. By the way, I uploaded a shoreline video from yesterday too. Check it out...
