Storms passed through yesterday, some severe. But we are ok. There were tornado warnings out in the morning. Being in a camper is never a good idea when that happens so we went to nearby Walmart and did a little shopping. The power went out for a bit while we were there, but came back on quickly. Lois invited us to ride out the weather with her in her condo so we went over there for a few hours. It remained dark gloomy most of the day, and there were tornadoes north and west of here, but they missed us.
But this morning! Nice sunshine. We walked some of the boardwalk at Big Lagoon Campground again and took some pictures.
Across the Big Lagoon to the south is a long spit of sand on the other side of Big Lagoon and on the Gulf of Mexico that is part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore.
There is one road. Parking is along side the road for most of the length. You can see Big Lagoon on the left in the picture here and the Gulf of Mexico is on the right.
The Gulf was still churning from the stormy weather this area has had the last few days. The sun was out but clouds began rolling in again. There were people out walking on the beach, some fishing. There were only a few of those Portuguese Man-o’-War here, but other than that the beach was pretty clean.
This crane was patiently watching the fishermen.
Across the road, on the Big Lagoon side, the water is calm. A partially submerged sailboat sits close to shore. Looks like it has been there a long time.
On the way home we drove by replicas of the Nina and the Pinta that are docked at the Perdido Key Oyster Bar Restaurant & Marina. Might have to visit them another time.
Our Latest Toy
We got ourselves a Trail Camera just for kicks. Lately we have seen evidence a critter has been crawling into outside spaces in the motor home. We set the Trail Cam up underneath one of the slides and captured an ear!
Of course we knew it was a raccoon, but now we have a picture of it.
We’re new to the Trail Cam thing. I need to tweak the setup a bit to get better shots. I’ll post whenever we get lucky.
