Today started off great and got better! My parents went with me to see one occurance of the Kemps Ridley Sea Turtle hatchlings being released! The sea weed was parted to make an easy pass to the water! At the Ranger's knees are all the little critters warming in the rising sun!
The volunteers and the Padre Island National Seashore employees brought some of the little turtles around to all of us assembled. We got to take close up pics and see just how small and perfectly designed they are! Some of the volunteers had bamboo poles with streamers on top to ward off any curious sea gulls. Sea gulls love to dine on baby turtles. The sky was so pretty! There were rain clouds with the sun peeking through and around to make me so happy I live here! The pelicans were passing high overhead and I wondered how many were from Louisiana!
Mom and Dad are always up for an adventure and especially like to go to the beach! I told them about the release scheduled for this morning and they went yesterday to scout out where it was and how to get there!
This morning 6:30 am was a beautiful photo opportunity! People say I'm a great photographer but all the glory should go to Jehovah, the creator of the beautiful earth we live on and the way it looks to us and makes us feel to be alive! Corpus Christi is a pretty place to live! I captured this looking from Laguna Shores Road toward the north east over the John F. Kennedy causeway. I have an Olympus E520 with a zoom lens. I used manual focus and 100 asa. See you later.
We went to Sugarbakers for lunch today! It was a very nice dining experience. All over one wall of the building was every theme and color of cake you can imagine and some I never would have. They make and sell them there! The lunch was very well prepared. I had a chicken pot pie and a beautiful green salad! I liked the variety of green and red lettuce and spinach leaves too. There was a cup of chicken vegetable soup that was tastefully seasoned. Our server Kim was flitting around like a hummingbird in a flower garden. I really look forward to going back! They are located at 2766 Santa Fe Street, Corpus Christi,TX 78404,. Call 361-884-9541 if you want a beautiful cake designed for your special occasion. They had good cookies and cake for visitors too (don't ask me how I know). It was busy so go early!
