We woke up in Cuero Park to a fog laden day. Despite the affect on our photography, it was really quite neat looking.
We walked around this very large and attractive park taking it all in.
The park was a mecca of both new and familiar bird sightings which was a super fun experience. Most exciting was the spotting of this...
Here’s some more photos from our very misty day at Cuero City Park in Texas.
Surely our readers have figured out that Nicole likes to get REALLY close to tiny
things. This is what you shirt looks like through a drop of water on a macro lens.
Getting really close on wet days has its photographic challenges.
As we rounded the far side of the lake we were approached by the fuzz who informed us that we were not supposed to be hooked to the electricity in the spot we had chosen the night before. He then recorded all of the pertinent hardened criminal data down in his little black book, told us to speak to the park superintendent and drove off. Since we were on the other side of the lake (a BIG lake) and Wal-Mart (overnight option #2) was literally across the street, we figured we’d finish our walk first.
Here’s some more pictures from our walk.
Oh! Just realized that we didn’t tell you the rest of the ‘You’re Not Supposed To Camp There’ story. So, we rounded the lake and went to talk with the park superintendent. He was very friendly and told us that the only reason we had managed to get power was that they had forgotten to turn off the power at those spots after the Christmas in the Park lights had been taken down. We were informed that the “free camping” area was under construction and once they were done it would no longer be free. He was kind enough to not charge us for the previous night and even told us that we could stay for the current one if we desired but after that he would need to charge us. We decided though to just go ahead and move the 50 miles that we had planned for two days later since it wasn’t that far.
And that was our night and day at the park in Cuero, TX.
