In the Marry Marry Month of May....

50 years ago, on May 11th [1968], Bud and I married. Today is our Golden Anniversary


To begin this post I am now back to present day!!  Early in the morning hours [I left on purpose 'cause of the low lying ground fog to avoid the rush hour traffic], I headed to Calallen, Texas to enter the park along the river. At one point where I take the exit from the NPID freeway to the interstate, I almost turned around and went back home, the fog was so thick. By the time the traffic lanes straightened out from the exit overpass, the fog then became thinned out. All along the trip there were patches of dense heavy fog to some clearing. I kept going and arrived at the park as the gates opened..  The air was still, the trees dripped with dew, the birdsong was faint and peaceful.  One white tailed dear jumped in front of the car as I took the steep incline on the road.  Thankfully, the speed limit through the park winding road is 5MPH...slow enough to utilize the reflexes and not run into any wildlife on the pavement....





Along the river, along the park road, near the ponds, it was beautiful. I was glad I kept driving to the park.





...even the common birds [red winged black bird and white winged dove] in the misty morning light were pretty!!

  12. I'm glad you persevered with the foggy journey, I'm sure I would have bottled out! It did make for great photos though. I'm sure you had the place to yourself along with a few birds!
