While heading to Rockport, Texas and Goose Island State Park this morning, I came across a beautiful fog bank. It was burning off quickly, so I was glad to have been in the right place at the right time to see it.

There was even a coastal ranch just feet from the ocean. This is one of the cutest cows I have ever seen.
And this guy IS the cutest guy I have ever seen. Look at those ears. I love cows. They always make me smile.
But you don't go to Goose Island for the cows (or the geese, apparently, because I didn't see a single one).

I love birds, you know that, but I really love small landscape shots.
I also love interesting plants. I have no idea what this is, but I like it. It grows about 6 inches tall and I found it all along the coastal road.
It never ceases to amaze me what my camera sees that I do not. I once again find a subject with tiny spider webs that were invisible to my naked eye. This seed pod was about the size of a dime.
This oak is over 1,000 years old, has a circumference of 35 feet 1 3/4 inches, and a diameter of 11 feet 2 1/4 inches.
And then there is the beach. No sand, really, but lots of tiny shells.
Breck visited this park several years ago with our son Cameron, so we thought it would be okay to add a pin the map since we have both now visited.
