Block #48~Great Blue Heron~Friday, November 30

The Meemaws spent the last weekend in November visiting Rockport, Texas. The purpose for our trip was to take the Whooping Crane and Coastal Birding tour and just have fun.  We were able to spot 25 different species of birds. Watching a family of three Whooping Cranes defend their one mile territory from intruding Whooping Cranes was absolutely amazing. My most favorite bird, however, was the Great Blue Heron. I ran across some individual Herons in different locations and was able to get up close.

These photos were taken in the early afternoon.

This photo was taken in the early morning. It is my favorite.

The Great Blue Heron was the trip’s hit for me, so I included it in my fabric quilt journal. I am late in making the hexagon block because I am finishing off Christmas projects.

Meemaw Clown Car

The Meemaw Clown Car will be on the road this week. We are heading out to Rockport to see the Whooping Cranes and other birds. We have booked an excursion on the Whooping Crane and Coastal Bird Tours . One of the Meemaws asked if I would paint a rock for us to leave behind at her brother’s coastal house.

After painting one rock to leave behind, I thought it might be fun to paint a rock for each one of us to keep.

I hope the weather cooperates with us so that we can go on the boat tour. I won’t mind if it is cold; I just hope it is not raining.
