Goose Island State Park

Sun rise at Goose Island State ParkThis weekend Sylvia and I parked on the bay at Goose Island. We had temperatures in the low 80s and we were 10 feet from a beautiful bay. There were fish jumping out of the bay and large white pelicans swimming right in front of us. This image of the sun rise on Saturday was just to the right of our camp spot.

Goose Island State Park is about 20 miles north of Rockport and about 275 miles away from Austin. It took about 5 hours of driving to get to the state park from where we live in the West Lake area of Austin.

We visited the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge an saw an American Alligator and the endangered Whooping Crane. There are more images from the trip on the photo archive web site.
