It Grows-We Mow

Now that Spring has sprung, Laurence bought a new John Deer ZTR! Can you tell Charles is happy?
We sold our three year old John Deer while it was running great! 
These things are great for in among the RV's because you can back out the way you came in! Charles was mowing everything in site!

Blissful Morning

This morning I went out to view the sunrise over the Laguna Madre parking with my drivers window to the water! Then a vehicle comes up an parks between me and the North! I was aggravated by that. I watched as he put on waders and his bait bucket and fishing pole and waded out between me and the sun's path. I think he added something blissful to the picture. I waited for a gull and that made a pleasant mood picture don't you think? So when you get lemons make lemonade!

Spring has Sprung!

Now that Spring is here the mornings are much clearer! I like to wait for a bird to spice up the view!
This is taken at the end of Caribbean street. The bridge is the John F. Kennedy Causeway!

SD cards compatibility.

I recently bought a Nikon d3100 dslr camera that uses sd cards. I needed to know which sd cards I needed because this camera does video as well as stills. I thought this info would be helpful to my readers because not all card reading devices would work and I'm glad to know that before I upgrade any cards or readers because of a sale price! I also looked in my camera manual and learned I can use all three types. I went to Nikon on line to get this factory manual. Learning should never stop!

I found this great information online about sd cards at

Understanding Backwards Compatibility
·    SDXC memory cards must only be used with SDXC devices.

Ahoy there Hoya Flower!

I'm so glad it's Spring! This Hoya plant put out a gorgeous ball of little blooms. I of course with my new closeup lens had to try to capture the pretty little bouquet for all to see. My roses have bloomed all winter and the hibiscus as well have contributed to our tropical paradise here at Laguna Shore Village RV park!
Check out the pictures of the rare sighting of a pair of flamingos a few days ago. The wax plant or porcelain flower, Hoya carnosa, is an attractive ornamental plant, native to Eastern Asia and Australia.
The Hoya’s unique appearance and heavily fragrant blossoms make it a popular indoor plant.
The flowers are semi-glossy with a fuzzy sheen due to tiny hairs on their surface, and are borne in clusters of up to 30 flowers. Each individual flower is about 0.6 inches (1.5 cm) in diameter.
The plant is a climber and is easily propagated from cuttings.

Bird Flirt

Were they fighting or flirting? I don't know but they sure were putting on a show! Roseatte Spoonbills are so pretty! These were along Laguna Shores Road here in the Flour Bluff area of Corpus Christi, TX. I had a good time watching them and all the assorted shore birds we have here. We get lots of bird watchers at our Laguna Shore Village RV Park!

Flaming Flamingos

Flamingos are extremely rare in South Texas! My husband Laurence saw a couple close to his favorite fishing spot in the Laguna Madre. He wont give me more information than that! Says I would blab to my friends! Hard to believe a man I've been married to for 38 years would feel that way! Oh well! Here's the pics he took with his pocket camera!
