I am fully aware that many of my readers, friends and family are really more interested in what Man and I are currently up to, what trouble we might be getting into, rather than reading about THE Trip that has been over for a good 6 months. I am happy to report, that for the most part, we are behaving. We have been in Gulf State Park, Gulf Shores, Alabama for 2 months and have not done much. Well, we have done a LOT of resting, visiting with RVing friends, making new RVing friends, quietly celebrating the holidays, and taken walks.
Man loves old large live oaks, he is communing with this one. He loved that he could "wiggle" the tree a bit with that low hanging branch.
I have gone days without taking a photo (really!) and have given myself permission to slow down on the blogging, input, etc. I have taken some time to devote to learning curve with new programs and software, and still need to do quite a bit more of that.
I have captured a few good creature photos though, like this guy taking his holiday bath. To see the rest of the bath, visit Reflection's Flora and Fauna.
We took a few walks on the fishing pier and met Sam, a tame pelican. You can see the rest of his photos here, I had a great time taking these, Sam can be very entertaining!
One day taking a walk I found this green-backed heron just feet from our campsite. I have looked for this beauty every time I walk by that canal, and have not seen it again. By the way, the second photo over at Flora and Fauna is even better!
And, possibly the most fun photo(s) of the last several months, the armadillo, of course there are more photos and the full size version of this one over at Flora and Fauna, if you have not seen these, please go have a look, his pose is great.
We enjoy walking at the beach, even on days when it is windy. I am always looking for photo ops, so, I tried capturing some of the buildings as viewed through the ocean mist kicked up from the wind and waves. And, yes, that is a crane on top of that building.
I am still working on a caption for this photo of a lone shore bird strolling past these beach chairs whose occupants are down in the water splashing away.
Man and I have both been quite content to just enjoy the moments, a lot of very quiet moments. If nearby, you may hear a number of deep, soul cleaning, SIGHHHHHHHHHS. See, Man is QUITE content, except, maybe you better make that deep, soul cleaning, ZZZZZs.
