Thanks to my friends at theAmand Bayou Nature Centerfor helping me determine what kind of birds a lot of these are!!! They are such a lovely group of people!!! Thank you for always being willing to help!!! Birding in Texas has become somewhat of a new hobby for me so I need plenty of assistance trying to identify them all still!
Like the idea of crazy flavored ice cream? Then this is your place! Rhea’s Ice Creamin San Marcos is a tiny, cute ice cream shop in the heart of San Marcos surrounded by other quaint shops, restaurants and fun stores to explore. (You can always search this blog in the SEARCH box on the right side for Things to do in San Marcos, etc. so you can help plan your visit).
What does a rational person do once she learns Tropical Storm Cindy wasn’t going to hit Houston badly? Yep, drive to the beach on Saturday! It was looking unpredictable if it would rain or not in Galveston, Texas so I figured I’d get storm photo shots or enjoy the beach as either way it was going to rain by my house so why not….
The first weekend in June, I headed out for the day – just hopped in the car and decided to see where to road took me 🙂
I ended up here, in front of theSan Felipe de Austin State Historical Site. It’s right around the corner practically from Stephen F. Austin State Park so I was shocked that I hadn’t visited earlier as I’ve camped at the park several times. This is where Stephen F. Austin began the town of San Felipe de Austin in Mexican Texas back in 1823.
The Brazos River, that was called Rio de los Brazos de Dios by the early Spanish settlers translates loosly to “The River of the Arms of God”.
As I have been messing around in editing and trying new looks…which bridge photo do you like best? Top/Cover A, B, C or D? If you’d care to tell me why, I’d love to hear but if not a simple A,B,C or D helps me 🙂 and thank you!!!
While I didn’t go camping on this outting, I included some photos from when my daughter and I and our pups went camping in 2015. We had a blast camping there and did some geocaching there too. Let me tell ya…finding a micro-geocache is hard (full credit to my daughter finding that one!)!!! The trails there are well-kept and plenty of birds can be spotted here too…especially my red cardinals 🙂
