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 […]

Visiting the Houston Zoo…

Friday, the tribe drove into Houston (TX), to do something other than fishing.  😉  We spent the day at the Houston Zoo!  The zoo had excellent parking, and the grounds were clean and well kept.  After getting through the gate, the first place that we went was the aquarium building…The tanks were well lit, and […]

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 […]

Campground Fun & Vehicle repairs…

We have been keeping busy during our extra time here near San Antonio! We (meaning Vaughn and one of the boys) redid the bathroom.  I’ll have to remember later to take a picture – nothing extensive, but we are liking the practicality and convenience! On Thursday, Beth and I went into town to pick up […]

Taking it easy…

We’ve been so busy in the sunny south, doing nothing, that I haven’t had time to catch up! LOL! We had a lovely Thanksgiving!  We might have a small kitchen, but Bethy and I managed to whip up a fairly traditional meal.  We baked 4 pies (cheater pies with purchased pie crusts!), one at a […]

Finally ‘down south’, traveling to Texas…

Last Monday we left Montana.  We ended up leaving in the afternoon hoping to beat a cold front.  We only made it to Gillette, WY – which was not on our itinerary! LOL!  It’s very easy to miss where the highway splits when it’s dark out and you’re gabbing a mile a minute!  😉   But, that’s how […]
