Since I retired I seldom go anywhere in a straight line. My route winds around, past good roost trees, little ponds, small creeks and briar patches. I set out for SAHS at 3:00 PM today, with an ETA of 4:30 PM, allowing time to look around and do some sitting. I'd put in a lap around Maria Sanchez Lake, found a few pics there, and was headed north, along the bayfront, checking out boats and other cool stuff. My cellphone rang, after school activities cancelled again, grandson already caught the bus home. Since I can't head west without first going east, I rolled into the county boat ramp, found some immature White Ibis, and Pelicans. No sense in wasting a trip.
Never follow me, if you're in a hurry!
