Catching Up Is Hard To Do

Well it certainly has been awhile since I posted. We are just having so much fun and the time is flying. I have taken some pictures but mine are no where near as good as our friends. They have great camera’s.  It is on our list of must have’s for some day..

We have been to Goose Island to look for the whopping cranes. We did manage to see a few, but from a distance. They are one of the rarest animal species of North America and migrate from Canada every winter

We also saw the BIG TREE..  This is one of the most famous live oaks in the world….They estimate it at being 1,000 years old.

I took a trip over to Port Aransas on the ferry with Mac and Netters.  I really like it over there and must get back with Kevin some day. 

We toured the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi. It was very interesting.

We are truly enjoying our time here.  Just walk out the door and find a friend to talk to.  We have had many a happy hour and many nights sitting around the campfire either cooking smores, chatting or telling jokes.This past week   Molly and Bob turned us on to a new card game called Hand and Foot.  Oh my, the laughs we have had playing at night. We usually gather at the clubhouse and bring a treat to share.                                                                               And of course we haven’t starved at all. We have had pot lucks, burger night, fish and meat taco night. Also we have tried a few of the local restaurants, some good and some great.
