Vacation and BoInk

We went on a camping trip to Goose Island State Park in Rockport during their annual Hummingbird Festival. We were going to stay longer but, alas, it was not meant to be. On the way there, a big chunk of the siding on our camper broke off. We were lucky that no one was directly behind us on the road so no one got hurt. After we got there, we realized that the air conditioner isn't working. So, we think, well at least the wind is blowing in off the water and will help cool us off. Think again. As soon as the sun started setting, the wind stopped and the mosquitoes started. We stayed long enough to see a few lectures at the festival, buy a few t-shirts, and visit their local quilt shop and then we came home. We stayed about 3 days. At this point, all you can do is sit back and laugh. I would normally get a ton of photos but we didn't stay long enough for that. So, here are a few Seagulls and a pelican that I managed to get photos of.

I couldn't resist getting a photo of this little guy. He was posing so nicely for me and didn't fly away even when I got super close.

Here's my latest progress on BoInk. I would like to finish all of the black in the borders and frame before I get back to work on any more blocks. I don't know if I can make myself though. ;)
