3/6/12-A Day at the Lake

I spent Sunday at the lake. The hours there are carrying me through the hours in this work week. I suspect the same is true for Nonni and Bentley.

The winds were very high. Just look at how much of this sailboat’s hull is out of the water!

No matter how windy or cool (60’s), it was still better than being inside and I’m already counting down the days until I can be lakeside again.

I may have to add fishing gear to my RV-living wish list. This guy was at a table not far from me and he had waders (check out the insert), multiple poles (4, I think), and was catching fish right and left. At State Parks, in Texas anyway, you don’t have to have a license if you’re fishing from the bank. Hmmmmm, another freebie to add to the mix of RV living. Gotta love it!


Of course there’s the cost of the gear, and storage might be a problem. And, I’d have to learn how to clean the darn things. Bubba or someone else has always done that for me. Oh well, a girl has to do what a girl has to do, right?

I am going to love living in my RV one day!

  1. Wow that boat looks like its about to tip! Would be scary to be out on the water that way.

    The puppies look like they're having fun though :)

    1. There were about 10 sailboats on the lake. Some of them I swear were beyond a 45-degree angle. It might have scared me too but they looked like they were having a blast! Puppies always enjoy being outdoors - they're just like their mommy. :)

  2. It sure looks nice. I think I need to move somewhere so I can be by the lake all the time.
    I wouldn't mind fishing but no way can I put that worm on the hook...lol

    1. There are sure some pretty lakes in your neck-of-the-woods. I love that area all the way through New England. Gorgeous! You could do like a cousin of mine and just hold your pole in the air every time you need bait - someone always helps out. Cracks me up! :)

    1. @ Sandra - Someone, anyone, let alone you - the MadSnapper, requesting photos from me? LOL, this may be a 1st. One boat had 4 people leaning out over the top edge to keep it from tipping. Lots of whoopin' and a hollerin' when it sat back down. :)

    1. @ Susan - I've been on sailboats but wasn't the one doing the actual sailing. I very much enjoyed that, but it seems like a lot of work to me. The lake is Joe Pool Lake at Cedar Hill State Park.
