Brazos Bend State Park
Last Friday JMM and I took a picnic lunch to Brazos Bend State Park and enjoyed the warm sunshine and shade under the massive live oaks. After lunch a stroll along the park trails. Immediately, it was obvious that spring was well under way: Never have we seen so many alligators and turtles! We realized that we always visit Brazos Bend in mid-winter to avoid the heat and mosquitoes so we were never there when the turtles and alligators are out and about. The ducks, of course, were all gone but there were many herons, moorhens, and a grebe or two. Lovely day.
