Our week

Tuesday was a perfect day for a boat trip, a lite breeze and temp in the mid 70's.
We were to meet at 11:30 for a noon trip up the Brownsville Ship Channel but something got messed up and that trip left at 11. The cruise people were really sorry about the mix up and we got a free Dolphin Watch trip that left at 1 pm. So instead of a 4 hour trip with dinner we had a 2 hour trip free. We didn't care and we got to see a few dolphins, stingray and puffer fish up close. Thursday we found some fields where the sugar cane was burned and being harvested so we watched for hawks.
There were a few but the Turkey Vultures out numbered them.
Saturday, Laguna Vista had their Bird Fest. They were to have a couple of bird walks, speakers and photo contest.
Would you believe we finally got rain and a good rain so the walks were canceled!

(Ken didn't enter the photo contest.) But we know the winning photographer, Kay, member of the Harlingen Audubon Society and writer of Arroyo Colorado blog.
Saturday evening we had some entertainment here at the park.
They were entertainers from Branson, doing their winter tour though Florida, Texas and Arizona.
They were very good!
(And yes, we did buy their CD's, they had a deal we couldn't pass up 3 for $20)

Many of the folks in our park have headed home or just to another place, so we didn't have a very big crowd.
Hope your week was a good one, more from the RGV next week.
