A Good Day for a Hike

We went for a hike this morning after a late breakfast, about three miles through tall pine forest.  The weather was perfect for hiking, sunny and temperatures in the 60’s.  There was an alligator at the edge of the lake taking a sunbath and there were lots of people out fishing.  We stopped at the park nature center and saw their exhibits. We are still in the land of turtles, alligators, and the big egrets and herons even though the countryside is hilly and there is much less swampland.

This afternoon we did more of what we are best at – a little bit of cleaning, reading, playing on the computer and napping.  Charlie saw another alligator near our site at the edge of the lake.  Guess I won’t be walking around in the dark tonight.

The campground is a little more crowded, it being Friday and relatively close to Houston, but the sites are big with a lot of open space around us.

It’s all good!
