Where are we today ?
Walkabouts this morning and a bike ride for a bit along Fulton Beach road for a short ways, but I did find it rather windy for an enjoyable ride. But stopped for a picture of the Copano Bay bridge and you can see the beginning of the 98 million dollar replacement that is underway. The existing bridge was erected in 1967 but has deteriorated so badly that it does need to be replaced even after some emergency repairs that have been done. You can read about hit HERE.
Even thou not a sunny day it was about 70 f and quite nice for a ride, (when I was out of the wind). Even spotted this large Heron a few feet away wading in the tall grass, looking for breakfast.
On an afternoon walk I spotted this Roseate Spoonbill wading in the pond not far from our site. Such a beautiful bright pink color it can be spotted from quite a distance. These pictures below were taken at full zoom (with my Panasonic Lumix point and shoot camera) from quite along distance away. As soon as I attempted to sneak closer it to flight.

While at the Snowbird Arts and Craft show yesterday we sampled some Gourmet Texas Pasta The sample was Spinach, Basil and Garlic Fettucine and was so tasty and different that we just had to purchase a package. This is made with Durum whole wheat mixed with freshly ground spices and real vegetables. They actually have 33 different varieties so we picked another to try as well Cabernet Sauvignon Fettucine that did go very well with our bacon wrapped beef filets on the grill, fresh mushrooms, onions, steamed cauliflower and garlic bread/ w cheese.

Soon time to fire up our Weber, throw on some mushrooms and onions in foil, whip up the pasta , steam the cauliflower, and heat up the garlic bread with cheese. And before we know it supper is ready!

Not much we need to do other than have too much fun in this pretty decent winter weather we are having.
