2021 Shooting Day #7 – Crescent Bend Nature Park

My shooting companion and I got off to a very slow start on Monday. Really in the big picture we were enjoying the found time and the lack of a timeline to go do something.

Eventually we got off our backsides and decided not to completely waste the day. And Crescent Bend seemed like the best choice.

Even though I got more shots fired off on Monday, honestly the light wasn’t nearly as good and the bird variety was meh.

Still, a bad day shooting is better than a good day doing most anything else. And it was far from being a bad day shooting.

By the time the day was out, I was convinced that my shooting companion was somewhat hopelessly hooked on bird blinds. Over dinner at 54th Street Grill near the hotel, the two of us were already talking about what we wanted to do the next time we came down to Texas.

By early the next morning we would be turning in the car, heading to the Southwest Airlines ticket counter at San Antonio International, and then sitting at the gate area. Which is where I wrote the epilogue that started this arc of blog posts.

Still some loose ends to tie up, but that will wait for another blog post.
