Settled In

 The park here is a little different from those we are used to.  No "wasted" space, one might say.  The picture above doesn't really show the half of it, for between each two units that are visible, there is another unit.  They are arranged, though, so that no one has to look into his neighbor's windows, and each unit has a yard, 12' x 30' with reall grass.  Texas grass.

That's us on the right side of the picture.  We found that the next-door neighbors are from the town  where my sister used to live and where her ex still lives.  These people are acquainted with them.  "You can run, but you can't hide."  We almost always meet someone who knows someone, or at least knows someone who knows someone.

We took a nice scooter ride, picked up a few grocery items and visited the "birding" area.

 This little fellow greeted us at the park.  He did not shill for Geico.

 I have had an aloe vera in the house for more than forty years,  It has never bloomed.

BBBH really liked the rubber tree plant.  This the biggest one she has ever seen, she said.

And what a small world it is! Glad everyone has their own patch of turf. There's one near here that just opened and while large, it looks to be solid concrete.

Great pics~

My least favorite kind of campsite, but I like the lizard.

Shark, not nearly primitive enough for you, I know. I first spotted the lizard partially hidden by a twig, but managed to get a picture; then he ran out into the open and posed for me!
