Of course, life has been quite the ride. And as Senor Garcia said so beautifully, “What a long strange trip it has been!” Today, in the year of 2015, I, Rusty Turnstone find myself a resident of ARANSAS COUNTY, TEXAS. By no whim or accident did I ride a cool front down to ROCKPORT, TEXAS either.
Welcome to my corner of the Net by the Bay! Nestled among the environs of Live Oak Peninsula, enjoy the unfolding of my adventure. Once heard Ansel Adams said “In wisdom gathered over time I have found that every experience is a form of exploration.” I like that. It fits me well on this journey.
Aransas County, one of the smallest counties in Texas, mainly covered with water is now HOME. This place founded in 1871 and named for the Rio Nuestra Senora de Aranzazu, a Spanish outpost. My new home town of Rockport claims its name from the rock ledge that runs along its shore.
The Live Oak Peninsula along with Blackjack Peninsula which make up Aransas County comprise a unique area of ecology, wildlife and of course, local characters.
Hope that you will stay tuned to the adventures of Rusty Turnstone out and about in the natural world which is Aransas County and environs . . .
