Wonderful Sunday to Y’all 🙂
As long as I have breath…
Everyday is a beautiful day
I was fortunate enough to capture these images last Sunday (05/14/17). It was my first sunrise photo excursion since we’ve been in Rockport, Texas. Breathtakingly beautiful to be sure 🙂
Forward and beyond the current chaos —>
I know it exists. You can’t miss it. I am highly aware of it all. I’m just choosing to trudge through the bad so I can find and focus on the good. Is it possible that I may have traveled into the realm of Cognitive Dissonance? I’m thinking not. I’m just simply trying to find some sunshine through some dark clouds.
Have a happy Saturday Y’all 😀
A wise man once told me (sorry, I didn’t catch his name) that “In life… You’ve got to take the good with the bad.” Then there was some other complete stranger (didn’t catch his name either) that told me “If life hands you lemons, squeeze them into some conservatives eyeballs.” Wait… Give me a second! I think that guy might have been from California. Oh yeah… That’s right! He was!
Regardless, it was actually a dude from Texas that once told me that “If life hands you lemons, make you some hooch out of that shit!” Wait! Ah nuts! The only thing that I can recall in this moment of time is that some odd being that I had crossed paths with told me something about starting a lemonade stand. Oh well! I can recall the majority of my ingrained memories, However, recalling all of the time that made these memories possible… Elusive at best! Life seemingly does flash right before your eyes.
In lieu of a disgruntled mindset and my determination to push aside all of the (-)’s concerning our current RV resort, as well as other crud – (there are plenty of things to complain about; believe you me) – I’ve decided to share some bittersweet lemonade with y’all instead.
One of the most awesome things worth mentioning [on a (+) note] about this here RV resort (I consider it a trailer park) is the abundance of wildlife and the diversity thereof. So many different creatures, so many photo opportunities. When stepping outside, I don’t have to walk very far before discovering something like…
I am not entirely sure what kind of frog this is. — SO — Your mission, if you wish to accept it, is to assist me in identifying this little bugger 😀
On a silly side note: Does anyone out there remember the game show called “Name That Tune” (?) You do? Wow man! We’ve been around the block a few times 😉 Well anyways, I’m hereby applying a new twist to this old show title. So… without further ado —> “Name That Frog”
“I can name that frog in 9 polliwogs Tom”
We happened to be out and walking about towards the end of yesterday. When we came around a corner of one of the cottages here, we ran across this monstrosity. Of course I made a beeline back to our RV to grab my Rebel so I could capture a few images of this incredible creature. Mind you, images are the only way that I would attempt to catch this King of Spiders. It has to be a King. Just look at the Crown it’s wearing 😉
It was trippy looking to be sure. The extra swirls in its web is what ultimately stood out to me. That’s besides the thought of “OMG Becky! Would you look at the size of that spidder?” Below are a couple more images/angles for your viewing pleasure.
I sure am glad that we came across this entity on the outside of our RV rather than the inside! Hope y’all don’t get the Heebie-Jeebies from this most awesome creepy crawler. lol
For what it’s worth and if you’re so inclined… Have yourselves a fun-filled Saturday 😀
An Cat Dubh – (English: “The Black Cat”)
This is not the cat that adopted us. This beautiful creature is who we refer to as “The Black Cat”
This cat was here when we arrived at our RV resort. She was dwelling around an elder couple in a really sweet pusher motor home. Their names were Ray and Myrna. Good folk to be sure. They happened to be “Winter Texans” so they had left to go back to Iowa around the last week of March. Interestingly enough, this cat has chosen to remain in the same spot. Is she awaiting Ray and Myrna’s return?
Into the heart and with and unconditional concern for this little soul, someone else came along, rented this spot, and has been giving her fresh water and food ever since 🙂
Port Aransas (TX) is a wonderful place to visit. It’s just a hop, skip, and jump away from us. We enjoy taking the ferry across the bay. The majority of times we are fortunate enough to see some dolphins frolicking about as well as some Long-tailed Grackles that sit on your mirror asking for a handout. The sand is hard-packed so you can drive your car along the beach, which is most awesome. You can even rent a
Golf Beach Cart to cruise around in if you like. Most of the locals own their own carts and use them quite frequently around there.
Anyways, my Rebel is packed and ready to go. I’ll be sure to share some of my pictures with y’all tomorrow. Wishing everyone a most beautiful and peaceful Sunday 🙂
