Along with the hundreds of wild bird species that migrate each winter to the Texas Gulf Coast, we have found a place in this milder climate to nest for a month or two.
We secured a small space at the Sandollar RV Park in Fulton-Rockport, a charming fishing-artist community on the Coastal Bend of Texas.
This is the first time on our six-month journey that we have decided to stay for an extended period. Guess this means we are officially Winter Texans.
As with our neighbors from Kansas on one side and Alberta, Canada, on the other, we have even planted fast-growing winter rye grass and flowers to brighten up our little spot.
