After having seen Otto’s classic corvettes in his secret hide away, we asked him to bring a couple down to the RV park during the next pot luck supper so we could get some photographs of the corvettes on the beach. He brought three of them. We parked them on the beach, next to Nueces Bay in Corpus Christi and took some shots.
We spent the afternoon on the Wharf Cat catamaran boat in the Gulf of Mexico doing a Whooping Crane birding tour. We left from Rockport, headed toward the Whooping Crane winter nesting area and discovered so many other species of birds as well. It was an excellent day trip and would recommend the Whooping Crane tour in Rockport to anyone.

When it comes to United States independence, one usually thinks of the US as a whole, while in Texas, it clearly started in Goliad. Goliad, rich in it’s history boasts beautiful architecture in it’s court house and it’s Spanish Mission Espiritu Santu. Dar spent the day in Goliad, photographing the birthplace of Texas independence.
The chain of missions established along the San Antonio River in the 18th century is a reminder of one of Spain’s most successful attempts to extend it’s dominion northward from Mexico. Collectively they form the largest concentration of Catholic missions in North America. Four of the five missions were captured by photograph during our time in the area. Mission Espada, Mission San Juan, Mission San Jose and The Alamo.
