Crane AKA Crain

This is our favorite country road, Crane road, but then it has a second sign AKA Crain road. This is the first and last road sign I've ever seen like this and they are official signs. I've been meaning to take a picture of them. This picture at the top is an old one from spring and not even on Crane road. We come up to the excess road along hwy. 37 going to Corpus Christi and down to turn on St. Augustine and back to hwy. 181 and home. We actually saw three vehicles yesterday. The lack of traffic is the reason we like it so. I can drive very slow so John can see things. with his eye problem. I was commenting to John we never see any rabbits or roadrunners, and not even a snake crossing ahead of us. When I spotted something crossing in the distance. Not one, not two, too many to count, a whole flock of wild turkeys ambling slowly along. On their way to roost I presume. I guess their calendar isn't working or they would know it is near Thanksgiving and they best get a move on when crossing a public road.

I love a place I can drive slow and take long views! And I love the photo with this post.

I like what Rose said. When we are really on the road, I love it when we pass the Mississippi. Traffic slacks off. West Texas is good also. Much less traffic.
Now, I actually thought wild turkey were a thing of the past until we were backpack on the AT and saw literally hundreds of them at one spot.

Yep their calendar isn't up to date!
Good one and it is nice at my age too, to be able to drive SLOW and see stuff..

PS: I also like those road signs, I smiled when I though someone had made the second sign, then I laughed when you said they were both official signs. LOL

Beautiful photo! Suppose someone wasn't sure what kind of crane/crain they were naming the road after. Once while walking with four year old Hazil Ruth, I said "There goes a crane!" She said, "Mawmaw! That's no crane!" I told her it was. She said that her daddy had shown her a crane and that they were big, metal and picked up things. I'm like "Yes,you are right. But there are also big white birds called cranes." 😊

I like your new header photo. Those poor turkeys aren't too smart - are they?

We've recently had 3 wild turkeys running around our neighborhood. I have to idea what they could be doing here by the beach!
