Don and Gails 2011 Travel - Update #4

Well we didn’t  get abducted by aliens. and are now in San Angelo, TX.  Here we have enjoyed the warm days and cool nights while taking in some of the historic things.

Leaving San Angelo, TX. we traveled to Brownwood, TX. where we were in a no phone zone (that is Verizon and AT&T do not communicate with each other. We have Verizon and Brownwood is all AT&T.) We stayed out at Lake Brownwood and while there I decided to see who our nightly visitors were.

We left Brownwood Thursday and are now in Mother Neff State Park just west of Waco, TX. The weather has been in the high 80’s and low 90’s, often breezy or windy, and sometimes, just plain hot!  The bird action in all the places has been terrific: meadowlarks, mockingbirds, cardinals,wrens, titmice, tanagers, warblers, woodpeckers, vultures of several kind, hawks, sparrows and finches, two kinds of doves, owls, and who knows what we’ve not yet seen.  Their music has been just delightful.
