Newest picture of the Barn Swallow Babies
Sunday was another busy day at the VC, lots of questions, directions and sales. It was a good day, however, it wasn’t for some of the guests, Heard on the Park Radio: There was a bicycle accident and someone broke a leg and was airlifted out of the park, A little kid, (I think a girl) fell off a picnic table, hit her head, but is okay and another little boy burned his finger in a fire, family took him into urgent care. All in all, the Rangers were kept busy all day. You just have to always be careful. Anything can happen to ruin a fun day.
I now have at tripod for the kingpin. Last week when I bought it and tried to put it up. the legs weren’t long enough, so Vestal came over before he left to help. We had to use thick wooden blocks. I do believe that helps with the shaking when I use my W/D. He also put all the plumbing connections on the water hose. A big Thank you to Vestal.
The rest of the evening I finished the novel that I’ve been reading and started on the next one in the series. I also tried to catch up on reading blogs.
This morning, I called Gate Guard Services regarding the paperwork that was sent. I will need to go to Corpus Christi on Wednesday to take the test and be fingerprinted and then see what I can get as far as a gate. It may be a while before a 12 hour gate is available, but at least I will have the preliminaries done.
Angel and I took a drive into Leakey to the hardware store for something for my project. I still have a bit to figure out before it is finished. Since there weren’t too many people in the park, I thought that it would be a good day to do a short hike along the river and take some pictures.
down by the boat dock
Looking South from the dock,
I think they call this the Pool, because of the way the rocks are and it is shallow.
Still looking South down the Frio River.
There are caves in “them thar hills”. This is just a little one.
An empty Cypress Tree, I can stand inside of it.
Everyone asks how the water is, so I thought I would find out. I thought that it would be a lot colder, but it was quite refreshing. Angel wasn’t too thrilled. though. I guess that she’s not a waterdog. This is looking North from the rock beach. On the weekends this is overflowing with kids.
These kids had it all to themselves.
I drove North to another part of the river near to some of the campsites with shelters where they have access to the river, but not near the day use area in the pictures above.
That’s it for the river tour. We headed home for some dinner, and to watch the deer come down to the river.
Angel is learning to not bark at the deer. She sits in the window and lets me know there is something is out there, but when I say shhhhhh, she just watches them. She’s such a good girl.
This was going to be a short post, but I guess NOT.
Good night all.
Thanks for visiting
Susan and Angel
