I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.


Thank you for stopping by. Just to let you know, I'm still blogging but have moved to Geogypsytraveler. Hope you'll follow my adventures. Just click here.

01 Harris' Sparrow Mom's carport San Benito TX phone (816x624)

While sitting outside under Mom’s carport having a cig (yes, I’m smoking again, too much stress down here) I spotted two Harris’ sparrows (I think) making a nest in the gutter. I only had my phone to take photos and this before I learned not to zoom with it.

Both the male and female were sitting on the swirl, one on top and the other inside. But do you think I could catch that, no.

Gaelyn, I find birdwatching to be very relaxing. Neat sight to see the Harris Sparrows building their nest.

Birds are wonderful to watch. I'm looking forward to getting into the cabin as a window was deliberately put in as a "bird" window so I can sit and bird watch. Take care of yourself.

I just LOVE having birds around to watch. They each have such amazing personalities, and its endless entertainment! I love your photos of them in the swirls and on the rope.

He's very entertaining on that decorative metal.
So sorry about the stress, I hope you can give up the cigs when you get home.
I see Texas is expecting high temps, here in Bryce 14 is expected tomorrow.

Nice captures, Gaelyn. I like the rope dance.
Try not to get too stressed out down there.

You're still in TX? Hope all is well. Glad when you can destress. (Or at least have less...)

Nicotine is so addictive ... and for a reason. Or so I am told. I've always like the smell of cigarette smoke in outdoor air for some strange reason I cannot explain.

If it is stress that makes you want to smoke then I suggest you eliminate the stress then try to quit smoking.

You need to know why you smoke before you can quit. Devote some serious time to finding out why and it will then be easier to stop.
