|It was foggy when we rolled thru Galveston!|
|San Luis Pass and the weather while we were there!|
|The Roseate Spoonbills were always around San Luis Pass!|

|Aransas NWR looking for a Whooping Crane|
|The River Walk in downtown San Antonio|
The highlight of our stay there was the day we met a friend from the USAF days and his wife for lunch. They live in College Station and we met them half way there! What a great time we had catching up! We enjoyed our busy and short time in SA and weather was improving. We had several bright and sunny days and as we left it was getting nicer!
|The plaza of the Presidents at the National Museum of the Pacific War|
Fredericksburg was the home town of Admiral of the Fleet Nimitz, the Pacific commander during the War. The National Museum started out as a museum for Admiral Nimitz in his hometown not long after the war ended. It starts out with his early years in Fredericksburg and his departure for the Naval Academy. Most of the museum focuses on combat operations in the Pacific Theater and the leadership of Admiral Nimitz. A very well put together museum well worth a day to see it.
|Our spot at Isla Blanca RV Park|
It is one of the largest, if not the largest, park we have ever stayed in. It has 600 RV sites, is well managed and a place we will return to. And, again another birders paradise. We took a day and visited Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge not far from here and then over to Brownsville, another TX border town!
BJ is really looking forward to the beginning of the bird migration season when the number and variety of birds multiples beyond the current population.
|The Green Jay - the pic does not do it justice! Beautiful bird|
|The Great Kiskadee - another pretty bird|
|the Altimira Oriole|
|Yellow Rumped Warbler|
She is also getting into planning our AK trip for this summer and we have both started the Spanish language lessons we got for Christmas. Not doing too bad, in fact it is going much smoother then I expected!
Always at home, no matter where we are!!
