Goose Island State Park, Texas

Our view for the last few days has been of glorious waterfront sunrises and sunsets and pelicans swooping overhead. The front of the camper faces a marsh filled with shorebirds and our backyard is on a wide bay. We're a short walk from a long fishing pier. As we walk through this campground we see license plates for Michigan, Quebec, Ontario, Minnesota, Oregon and Kansas. Texas has so many beautiful state parks that many retirees winter solely in state parks, skipping from one park to the next as their 15 day limit expires.

We're very near Aransas National Wildlife Refuge and spent the day there yesterday. The size of the javelinas roaming in the refuge amazed me. At first I thought they were cows. There was quite a bit of wildlife, despite the drought which has dried out most freshwater sources.
