Wings...

Part 1 of the seawall walk was all about shrimpboats.  This part, part two is a few of the winged creatures as I sat on the wall by the water watching the activity on the bay...


The loud squawking of the Great Blue Heron broke my reverie. It flew up to the light pole just a short distance from me and perched. In fact, it allowed me to walk right up under it before it took off for better horizons...


...the brown pelicans seem to ignore the social distancing rule also! Out in the bay, on the breakwater they were! Corpus Christi's "Chamber of Commerce" nickname is "The Sparkling City by the Bay". This seems to epitomize the name:



These two gulls followed me when I walked to the end of the area to get a panoramic view of Shoreline and the walkway that follows the gazebos and the yacht club to end at a sandy beach. Anyway, I think they were expecting me to magically produce a snack or two. Sorry to disappoint.



Next, in my final and last post at the seawall, I ventured off the sidewalk, and walked behind it, to the harbor bridge. I ended up taking a few "off perspective" images and will share; all upcoming in a short while.

  3. I can't wait! I think my favorite is the terns! They must be getting food from people.

    1. I'm sure, and fish that are caught, then tossed them to the birds.

  5. I think the heron was enjoying the attention and a bit of a ham. Maybe that is social distancing for a pelican. They might not need the full 6 feet:))

  10. This is such a beautiful walk. Definitely sparkling..Great close ups of the heron. You have very different gulls than we do here on the West Coast..but I'm sure they are just as squawky and pesty as ours too.
