My poor little co-author and sidekick, Max is sooooo bored!!! I’ve been sick with bronchitis once again so homebound and high levels of steriods…yuck! I have such a love/hate relationship with steroids!! Anyway, that said…Max hasn’t been able to go on any of our adventures :(. So, here we go with some recent backyard, “Houston” photos.
Still driving home from visiting with my niece in Corpus Christi, Texas and my 3 hour drive is now approaching an 8 hour drive instead, due to my many pit stops! This was the last one though.
How do you turn a simple 3 hour car drive from Corpus Christi, Texas to Houston into a 8 hour trip?? Have me at the wheel!!! I see an interesting billboard, sign, etc. and off I go getting distracted….fun! (Swerve! Detour!)!
I didn’t ever make time for the beach while in Corpus, so a quick drive through of Rockport Beach surely wouldn’t affect my drive time tooooo much right?! (Well, let’s not mention the other stop at Harbor Point Park ..opps!…or the others…)

Yep, this is my crazy, distracted brain in action….the task today, after wedding planning with my niece, was to drive the 3 hours to get back home…seems simple enough right?! Nope…I see anything that looks like it should be further investigated and bam…off I go…am I ever going to make it home?! Not the way I tend to veer off on my mini adventures! 🙂
I drove past this cool little park and spun back around to check it out… The 1.08 trail has 10 foot wide concrete paths that will take you through lots of beautiful Live Oak trees and of course you will see Tule Creek.
After meeting up with my niece in Corpus Christi about her upcoming wedding, it was sadly time to head home…but wait…I saw a sign for a park….(swerve….) so let’s visit Harbor Point Park in Aransas Pass, Texas! I’d say it was “on the way home” but only if you plan on a round-about way…oh well…still…
Time for a photo “roundup”… it’s so unique to Houston to be able to have a bustling city atmosphere and then 3 minutes later see Longhorns – gotta love Houston! 🙂
The Green Heron is one of the world’s few tool-using bird species. It creates fishing lures with bread crusts, insects, earthworms, twigs, feathers, and other objects, dropping them on the surface of the water to entice small fish. (Source: allaboutbirds.org)
Anyone else do “Car Photography”? This is what I do now in this Summer heat!! I drive around parks or back roads and when I see a fun bird, etc. I pull over and shot from my car. Works out ok for me as my Sigma lens is rather heavy anyway and this way I can use my car window frame as a tripod and generally speaking either get to stay in my air-conditioned car or hop out for a spilt second, snap and drive on 🙂 .
