Joe and I traveled to Port Aransas, TX last week to participate in the 22nd Annual Whooping Crane Festival.
For the past 3 years, we have flown into Corpus Christie. Each of those 3 years, our luggage has not arrived with us so this year, we decided to switch things up and save some money on airfare. Instead, we flew into Houston and drove to Port Aransas. This tactic saved us close to $300 in airfare AND we did get our luggage!
Of course, as we neared the coast, it’s only natural for us to keep our eyes open for Whoopers and we were not disappointed. As we neared Lamar, TX we spotted 3 Whooping Cranes on the south side of the highway.
Naturally, I asked Joe to turn around and I banged off a few photos on his camera. Once we checked into our rooms in Port Aransas, I downloaded those photos and was surprised to see the company the cranes were keeping.
