Moving Day to Lake Tawakoni TX

This is the view out my window this afternoon.  We had planned on leaving Livingston TX yesterday, but the weather in our destination (here) was awful, so we put it off a day.  Well, actually, we hemmed and hawed about whether to leave today as well. 

Yesterday, Lake Tawakoni had huge thunderstorms and wind.  In fact, the dark spot in the grass is a bog-y area left over from the storm.  This spot is nothing compared to other areas in the park.  What we've discovered about that spot, is that the birds LOVE that spot!  Hopefully we'll be able to get some good shots of the different birds attracted to it.

There are many of these areas in this park, and there is still a 30% chance of thunderstorms tonight.  We walked along the boat launch area with Shasta this afternoon and saw GOBS of turtles in the launch area.

I'll try to get some pictures tomorrow.  I'm so surprised at how wooded central Texas is!  Really, it's just beautiful!


  1. It looks very flat though so I assume you have big skies. Good luck with the bird photos.
