Colder Weather Makes For a Slower day

A colder day limited my outdoor activities. So, I spent most of the morning reading email, blogs,putting my photo albums in better order and backing up Picasa. We did manage to burn the big pile of tree limbs and debris next door.  We had a pretty good bond fire going and would have had a photo to show you but my camera battery needed recharging.

I thought I would make the reading of the journal a little more interesting and show some photos of our trip to the 2008 Sand Fest  we visited in Port Aransas. We joined Mark and Dortha with RVing with Poppa along with Donnie and Karen Martin. This was our first Texas Sand Fest. The week we were their turned in to be   an enjoyable and memorable time.

Our RV Spot At Pioneer RV Park Port AransasWe stayed at the Pioneer RV park just outside Port Aransas. The RV spaces at Pioneer are all concrete pads with full hookup. We did have to pay our electricity though. Mark and Donnie parked right across from us and we had Happy Hour and some delicious meals between their coaches.Our Friends The Halls & The Martins Rv Spot I might add here that Mark had a 2002 Dutch Star before buying is current Tiffin Phaeton. Of course we had not traded our 2000 Dutch Star for the 2002 Mountain Aire we currently call home. The Sand Fest for me was great but the best part of that trip was the friendship and good times we shared with  our friends.


Also there were some memorable sun rises off the Gulf of Mexico. I tried to make it a point to get to the beach several mornings to capture pictures like these. Every time I saw a ship on the Gulf I would wonder where they were from and where were they going. DSC00284

Behind our Motor Home there was a pasture which had a several cattle feeding on the land. Every evening they would work their way up to the fence behind the MH and one specific cow would start bellowing. We first couldn’t understand why all the ruckus but later learned they were wanting their treats. The neighbors who had been there for the winter would fed them treats every evening just before sunset. Her bellowing was letting them know they were there.2008 04 19 063

There Sand fest didn’t start till on a Friday and lasted through the weekend. We were able to go over early during the week to watch the artiest build their sand art. It was just amazing to watch a pile of sand turn into something so beautiful as shown in the following photo album.

Until next time….MtnAire Travlers.
