This is day 2 of my Texas Gulf Coast Walkabout. When we last left off, our adventurer was camping out on Goose Island...
I woke up around 5:30 to four "stars" lined up. I found some random star app and it gave me this image:
The image is accurate but those are not the four planets I saw. Further up the line is Saturn. I didn't get any photos on this morning but I did on the following mourning so be sure to look at that blog entry.
The journey for the day took me from Goose Island to Carancahua Bay and Port Lavaca / Matagorda Bay Koa Holiday.
I went back to the place where I saw the Crested Caracara but never managed to get a shot. There is actually a pair of them. While searching for them, I came across a grain storage facility. The area is covered in corn (I guess -- looks like corn to me). The videos are pretty rough but here are some still photos to give you an idea.
The previous day while driving around I cross a brige for a bayou. I stopped and found these really interesting flowers:
And the bayou itself:
I eventually found the KOA campsite, wrote some Ruby code for my accounting project, and took a nap. Life is hard!!!
