Easter Sunday

  We were blessed to spend Easter with family in Macon, GA.

We are parked in the yard of my cousin and his wife.  We haven't seen them since 2006 when we first became full-time RV'ers.  We expect to spend a week with them.

A quick trip to San Antonio

  Yesterday we drove 200 miles to Helotes to spend the night with Susan.  We had a great dinner and sat outside a chatted. 
   Scotty had a doctors appointment at 7AM, to check on how is nose is healed.  The doctor was very happy with the way it looks.  It was a short appointment since he didn't need to do anything more.  So we were headed back to Port Aransas by 7:45.
  This afternoon we drove to Rockport to visit with Jim & Linda who are staying there at the Beacon RV Resort.  Together we went to Goose Island State Park.  We drove the campground and think it would be a good place to stop if we come this way again.  We also went to see the Ancient Live Oak Tree there. 

   The day was sunny and the wildflowers were abundant.

Today Scotty & I went kayaking with friends, Jim & Carol.
The mangrove swamp here in the bay is full of small channels and inlets where Whooping Crane, Heron, Ibis, Gulls & Rosette Spoonbill hid and flew up out of as we paddled by.
  There were many fish that would jump and flash past our kayaks and oyster beds were everywhere under the surfice.

Birds and The Beach

 We started the day with a trip to the water treatment plant and the ponds to see what birds were there.  Mostly ducks and pelicans, and the big guy in the picture.

The Long Journey Home Begins

 Another winter has come to an end and over the last month we have watched many of our friends pack up their RV's and head north.  And so we too packed up and left our winter home at Bentsen Palm RV Resort in Mission, TX on Sunday.
  Of course nothing is as easy as you think it should be and after all the work and packing & we were finally ready to leave the steps broke.  Scotty tied them up and we were on our way.  (Nothings going to stop us now...)
  We had a nice uneventful 200 mile drive to Pioneer RV Resort in Port Aransas. 
  Pioneer is a nice resort with a nice boardwalk to the beach.  We met up with our friends Jim & Carol Ablett here and will travel with them for a bit when we leave next week.
  Also, Gord & Carol Munro were here.  We got to spend a couple of hours with them tonight having a drink and some good conversation.  They leave in the morning so we said our good byes and will look forward to seeing them in the fall.
