June the 7th, Elaine and Don Graves arrived at our Laguna Shore Village RV Park to participate in the Heroes on the Water Event! The Soldiers with various challenges were taken out on the Laguna Madre in kayaks. The last picture shows one man with a halo on his ankle. One of the men won Biggest Redfish in a competition called Casting for a Cause! There was a crawfish boil and banquet! Note Elaine's getting ready to eat a mud-bug. Donations went to M.S and Heroes on the Water. We Donated a night's RV site and a storage unit for the kayaks. They said they'll be back! Hope so!
The photoprincess got a new 35mm lens for the Nikons d5100 and d3100. I love the lens and today I went out to Padre Island by Bob Hall Pier. The sunrise was gorgeous and so peaceful! The only stress was in trying to be ready as it unfolded. I used my tripod and played with my remote control some too. Thank You Jehovah for such a beautiful planet you made man on!
It was hard to see the condition of the sand I was driving into but I made it ok. I tried using a very high iso but I liked the results better with the iso lower and the slower shutter on the tripod. The lens opens up to 1.8 and that helps but I wanted to use f5 for best clarity. Oh well these are the results. I can only approximate the beauty of being there. I hope you enjoy. Try to get out at sunrise and see this beautiful planet come alive!
Wednesday after five on Laguna Shores Road this man was Kite Surfing! It looks like a lot of fun!
I've often dreamed of taking giant steps and that's what this looked liked to me! I hope you like the pics.
Being a morning person has lots of benefits! I love to see the sunrise over the Laguna Madre! Sea Gulls are plentiful to add spice to the food for the eyes. I learned long ago that silhouettes are more appealing with recognizable players. I hope you enjoy this scene too! Check out my older blogs for local scenery!
This morning I was so surprised! I am out every morning looking for picture opps. This morning I drove by Red Head Pond on Jamaica Drive here in Corpus Christi and got a real treat! There on the pond that had been totally dried up only two months ago, was a duck and her new babies! What a wonderful rejuvenation of what had dried up completely. We went through a terrible drought last year! This family of ducks makes me feel so comforted that the wildlife are back on the pond and that the pond is back!
Brandon Key and Bryan Burger among others came to our Laguna Shore Village RV Park this weekend. They helped put on the Texas Deer Association Brush to Bay Fishing Tournament. 50% of the proceeds go to the Wounded Warriors Program, Warrior's Roadtrip Network and CMO, Combat Marines Outdoors. These organizations take Wounded Warriors out of chairs and beds to the water and hunting, along with their families. Helpers donate time to show appreciation. They have a couple of all terrain wheelchairs with tracks on them to overcome obstacles in the field. We donated one RV site to their cause.
