Aransas NWR has a wonderful wild feel!
Well… not really a snack per se…more of a meal!
What a vast and wild place… Love to visit here… the Aransas NWR is located on the gulf and holds down a large peninsula of land.. there is a 16 mile drive through the heart of the area. I love the open and wild feel.
We Crossed a bridge in Aransas National wildlife refuge and saw a sign for ” aggressive alligators”, we all kinda chuckled as typically these beasts are lying around. As we got to the far side of the bridge we noticed several small baby alligators.. and MOM!…coming over towards us..and looking like she was going to take a bite out of us. Needless to say we retreated and left them in Piece other than a few shots with the long lens from a very safe distance!
We moved on to Port Aransas National Wildlife refuge down near the coast.. we pulled up to a short hike and the Black Swallowtail Butterflies were everywhere!!
After Allum creek we stopped at Bastrop St. Park for a little lunch, we saw the Pie billed Grebe, and some turtles after walking past the Old CCC structure..
On the Birding classic we got a lot of great birds.. some added to our life list..for me this was the Red headed woodpecker…
We did great in the tournament.. 3rd place in the Texas two step, 2nd place in the 6 Day statewide and Jen got a 1st place in the central Texas Big Sit.
There were really some pretty wild flowers at the tree farm in east Texas… and Chuck had a blast!
JT Curates one of the Best Shows at SXSW, its a family fun event full of friends and punk rock!
