This old house is located in Gregory. Driving down Hwy 35 on the southbound lane you can't help but see it. Old homes like this make me wonder about their history. When was it built, who lived there, did they have have children? So many questions and no answers! This photo was taken with a Nikon D5000 18-55mm lens.

If you haven't had the opportunity to visit the Texas State Aquarium in Corpus Christi, you really should! It is small, but very nice! Here are 3 dolphins giving us quite the show! Photo was taken with a Nikon D5000 18-55mm lens.

What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon, than a walk along the Marina in Corpus Christi. The views are spectacular and the pelicans sit there just waiting to be photographed! This one was captured with a Nikon D5000 18-55mm VR Nikkor lens.

Driving back to Corpus Christi by way of the Chapman Ranch we saw this Longhorn and as I was taking some photographs, he walked over as if to pose. Please click photo to enlarge and take special note of his tongue...so, cute! Photo was taken with a Fuji 12.2 Mp J38 camera.

This is the Post Office in Chapman Ranch. It is definitely not your average modern day facility. And yes, this photo was taken Feb. 15, 2010 and is a fully operational Post Office. By the way it appears that you can hitch your horse out front if you are so inclined! This photo was taken with a point and shoot Fuji 12.2 Mp FinePix J38 camera.
Driving along Hwy 77 northbound just south of Kingsville sits this old tractor. I can't help but wonder about the family it must have once belonged to. I'm sure there was a family who was dependent on it for the food they put on their table, now it sits rusted and overtaken with weeds. To some it is just an eyesore, but to me it's a thing of beauty and makes me wonder about its history..........Photo was taken with a Fuji 12.2 J38 Finepix camera.
This photo of bougainvillea was taken at a private home in Los Fresnos, Texas. A point and shoot Fuji Finepix J38 12.2 Mp camera was used. Bougainvillea blooms early summer to late fall. Admiral Louis de Bouganvillea began his long journey in 1768 to the Pacific Ocean and discovered the vine that now bears his name.
