Pink Birds?

Rockport, Texas
Weather Condition; High 82, Low 61,

Well we had another busy week. On Sunday night we invited some friends over for dinner. I set up the portable canopy with the wind walls. Dawn cooked pork loin, steamed broccoli and mac & cheese. One of the other ladies brought baked potatoes and cole slaw and beans. It was a great feast.   

Tuesday we and several ladies from the park went to the movies. We saw This Means War. Good movie.

Dawn and I went out for Mexican food it was wonderful and I over ate big time. I just can’t help myself. I love Mexican food and need a fix on a regular basis.

Wednesday the weather was very overcast but warm. Dawn and I drove out to Cape Valero and took pictures of the birds at the marsh.

It was really great to see our first Roseate Spoonbills. They have a wingspan of 47 to 51 in. Neither of us has ever seen a pink bird in the wild. They are beautiful.

We also ran upon a flock of Sandhill Cranes. They have a wingspan 5’ to 6’. They are very large birds with a bright red stripe on their heads.

Wednesday night we played BINGO at the club house.

Today we spent the day at home. Tonight we had a pot-luck dinner at the clubhouse. Lots of good stuff to eat.
