Peace River, FL – Fun times!

After our week in Orlando, we drove south a bit and spent a week at one of our favorite parks – Peace River TT in Wauchula, FL (don’t ask what big city it’s near, because it’s not near anywhere). This park is a bit unusual because over half the sites are just water and electric […]

Poche’s Fish N’ Camp Campground, (near Lafayette), LA…

After we finished visiting Monroe, LA, we trekked south to a little town just east of Lafayette, called Breaux Bridge.  Here we stayed, for 4 nights, at… Poche’s is an 85 acre, back to nature, peaceful campground that has 88 full hookup campsites, available in both 30 amp and 50 amp. The office has a […]

All good things eventually come to an end – even bass fishing in Texas

(in this case, the end of our bass fishing in Texas is signified by a 2 week park limit, and a full freezer!) We just finished up 2 weeks in one of our favorite places ever.  A little RV park located just west of Houston, on the Colorado River.We spent the ENTIRE 2 weeks fishing.  We is not […]

Christmas…

This is what happens when you tell Molly that she can make her own sandwich…yuck.  we had to take half of it off (but no, we didn’t burst her ‘I’m so proud’ bubble)! LOL! We have lots of deer to watch at this park too…The guys have been doing their usual thing…They’ve been troopers about doing a […]

the end… :(

of our fishing Padre Island this year. While we were on Padre Island National Seashore, we visited the visitor’s center several times… We stopped there one morning to inquire how the beach driving condition were.  Obviously, we don’t drive on the beach much (just when we are here), so we wanted to ask about how […]

Green Turtle release…

We love Padre!  And they love having kids out there.  One day the rangers sent over a message for the camp hosts to invite us to a turtle release they would be having the next day.  So before lunch, we drove (it’s not very far, we were just running late) to the visitor’s center, then walked […]

Spoiled…

While we were on Padre, we had ‘George’ over for dinner quite a bit (because we caught lots of salt water catfish! LOL!).  When any of the fishermen on the beach would get a bite, George would fly or run down to the beach and stop just behind and off to the side, of the fisherman.  George […]

Memories from Padre Island National Seashore…

We had such a wonderful 13 days at Padre Island National Seashore.  We spent most of the time walking the beach and fishing.   This is the beach’s resident beggar, George…He hangs out on the top of the dunes watching the fishermen, waiting for a handout of salt-water catfish, or entrails from the good stuff.  He gets several […]

fishing fun…

We were supposed to leave Padre on Friday.  But after Jake caught this 38″ Black Drum today, I think we are staying for the nice weather (= good fishing) this weekend.  😉

Camping in the snow (in SW MT :) )…

Last Thursday we hit the road for a little road trip that would include camping in the snow! We wanted to make sure we still had what it took to play, for a few days, in the snow (even though we head south every winter!  😉  )… On the way, near the Divide bridge, we saw […]
