Where are we now?

Monday March 12, 2018

It is on the cool side today, so we decided to go and find some caches.
The first one we go to, we did not find it!
All we found was the broken container on the ground and no log.
We replaced the container and added a new log.

We are right next to the "Laguna Madre".
The Laguna Madre is a long, shallow, hypersaline lagoon along the western coast of the Gulf of Mexico in Nueces, Kenedy, Kleberg, Willacy and Cameron Counties in Texas, United States.

Another cache is located near this fishing pier.  The fishing pier is now closed, thanks to hurricane Harvey.

At another cache, a very small scorpion moved out of the way of the cache.  He is only an inch long.

A series of caches took us to a neighborhood with all Canadian names on the streets.

We found 12 caches today.

The chef at work.

Well, checking out traffic on the road.

A good day.

A tour of our RV Park.
This is the "good street" where most of the RV are nice.

But half of the RV/mobile homes are not so good!
Some are from FEMA.
This trailer is a FEMA trailer.  They are built quickly and cheaply to help people without a home.  They were never intended to last for years like this one.

They replaced the windows with windows AC and they used plywood from the inside to seal the opening around the AC!!!
If it rains, the rain will go inside the RV.

The street of "permanent" residents.  We are talking about locals here.

A mobile home falling apart with people still living in it!
They had to screw a 2X6 on the wall near the roof and use 4X4 post to support the roof!

It is not the best RV Park, it is good for a week or even a month, but no more.

I am out for another bike ride this morning.
There are many drainage ditch around C.C. to help move the rain water back to the bay.
The arrow shows some black stuff in the water.

It was thousand's of minnows in the water!

Me and my stallion.

Michele was kind enough to share her sore throat with me.
After 10.3 km biking and a sore throat, I needed a nap.

Both of us are coughing and have a sore throat.  Life is not as good right now...

Thursday March 15, 2018

Even if I have a sore throat, I am still back on the bike this morning.  Maybe it will help me get rid of it!!!
Here is what I saw on my bike ride this morning.
Do they fix outboard motor?  RV's?  Cars? or they are simply collecting junk!

Even if it is only 21°C, the humidity is very high, like 98%.
I did cover 14.4 km on my bike this morning.

For the afternoon, we are off to Padre Island to look for some caches this afternoon.

The first one is in a post.  It is inside a bullet casing.

We are never more than a foot above water level here.

One cache is this fake blanking plate for an electrical box.

Another cache was at this submarine!
It was bought on E-Bay!

Look at the ants coming out of this post!

In this neighborhood, almost all the houses are on the water canal.

We found 8 caches today.

Friday March 16, 2018

No bike ride this morning.  We are both struggling with our cold and sore throat.
We stayed home and even did some laundry at the Washateria.

Saturday March 17, 2018

Back on the bike this morning.  It is still very humid today.
I was out for 11.7 km.
As you can see, I always stick to the same roads.  The only reason for that is that there are no bike path here.
I have to ride on the sidewalk.  It is not so bad !

Right next to the RV Park, all the old houses are being demolished.

Michele is feeling better and she is out to do some window shopping.
I take this time to change the male plug on the MH.
The sheath of the cable at the plug was separating and exposing all the wires to the elements.
Time to fix that!

The new 50 amp. plug.

It is done.
This plug is not water proof, but later, I will get some sealant and make it as water proof as it can be.

The rest of the day was spent on reading, TV and whatever!

Sunday March 18, 2018

I am out by myself this morning to go back and look at a cache we did not find  because we could not make it to the cache.
Michele is sleeping in ;-)

The cache is supposed to be in this bush or near it.
The last time it was found was almost a year ago.
This area was covered in water when hurricane Harvey came last August.
I think it got blown away or the big waves moved it.
I cannot find it.

Michèle having fun!

Until next time.

Life is good...
