Ever since I've left on this short trip the weather has been an issue, one way or the other. It seems if it wasn't cold, it was windy or raining. Well now that I'm on the coast, the temperature has gotten right with the daytime temps in the low to mid 70's and the nighttime temps falling into the mid 60's. But even though it has been dry, warmer and only breezy, the weather people have still found a way to mess things up. This time it is fog. Not just morning fog that burns off once the sun comes out,,,, nope, this stuff stays around all day long. It gets dense too with visibility down to a couple hundred yards. Being unfamiliar with the area, trying to drive in it would be crazy. It will tease you a little bit and lift for a few hours but then comes back that evening. Strange stuff.
|I found a pair of benches to watch a large cargo ship enter Freeport Harbor. The fog had lifted just enough for the ship to safely enter. It started fogging up again a few hours later.|
|A close up of the ship as I enjoyed the benches.|
|The ship made it safely into the harbor leaving behind the two long jetties that protect the harbor and guide the ships in and out. If the weather cooperates, I hope to walk to the end of one of them.|
|This is the beach in front of the county campground/park. The fishing pier in the background and of course the umbrella/Copacabana like things on the beach. I'm sure it is packed with people on a nice summer day.|
|From my favorite National weather site. It is from the National Weather Prediction Center (1/2 to 2 1/2 days out). Just a mess everywhere, but Kansas better watch out.|
I'll be here through Sunday before heading on a little farther north and closer to Louisiana. I'm thinking about heading to the Bolivar Peninsula after leaving here. I've stayed there a few times in the past and it suits me well.
Ya'll take care of each other. I'll Cya down the road.
