There was so much cooking and eating going on earlier this week that I didn't get a chance to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. Hope you had a good time. Yesterday while many of you were out fighting the shopping crowds, I was taking a walk in Brazos Bend State Park.
This park is very close to our house, but we don't take advantage of that fact often enough. I guess we are too busy or the weather is so hot we don't feel like being outdoors. Yesterday the sky was overcast and the temperatures were in the 70's, so we headed out. While my husband fished from the pier, my son and I walked around the lake. There are alligators in this park. We saw a big 14 foot gator across the bank. I couldn't get a picture of him from where I was, but he was huge! Saw lots of buzzards too--about 50 or more circling overhead. It was a bit creepy. And the armadillos were everywhere. This one let me get really close to take his picture.
There are lots of deer in this park too, but we didn't see any. Maybe next time.
