Well, there you are! What great pics. Looks like you had fun. I love the one of the lake and the trees. That's gorgeous!

And fishing. What different styles you all have. While you opt for the traditional pole and bait, Jackson commands the fish to jump forth using only his pointy fingers. And young Katie merely grasps them by the fin and pulls them out. Interesting.

pg cracks me up.

I love the pics. So peaceful.

I REALLY like the pic of Katie!!

I thought Jackson was lecturing the fish: "Unless you are THIS big, don't even bother."
Great pics!!

Rev Kim said...

Great pics! Dave's wondering whose bones those are...

PG: And guess who didn't catch anything? Me! So much for pole and bait theory.

Mindy: Thanks. I like that pic too. She gives me that look a lot. I dunno why...

Dust Bunny: He claims that is how big the fish was that he caught and released while I wasn't there. Yeah...right.

Rev Kim: Thanks! Tell Dave I said "Muhwaaahahahahaaa!" (I think we're going to make a wind chime out of the bones. Although Katie thinks people will see it and think we're weird. Silly Katie.)

How peaceful. Where is this tranquil place? Can you reveal the location to the entire world? Did you camp too?

SpookyRach said...

Jenstar: San Angelo State Park. You would love it! Seriously. We camped on the north shore/at the north entrance. It was the old people area, according to Mr. Young Ranger at the South Entrance who was just a teeny bit competitive with Mr. Crotchety Ranger at the North Entrance. It was soooo quiet and soooo peaceful and we camped under a huge canopy of old pecan trees. DEFINITELY going back there again.

mmm... looks lovely and peaceful - I love San Angelo - the oasis in the midst of the desert - that's how I always thought of it when I was younger...

SpookyRach said...

pmp - absolutely!

Elastigirl - lots of rugged beauty around there. Miles and miles from anywhere else.

Now I want to go fishing! Srsly!

SpookyRach said...

Well, grab your gear and bring your sleeping bag, CR! I wanna go fishin' too!

annie said...

Lovely pics. I can't imagine why Katie would have to give you such a look!

(I should have known you were away when there was no, ahem, Friday cemetery blog!)

SpookyRach said...

Thanks Jan and Patti!

I just can't git nuthin' past ya, annie! ha ha! I'll try to find something good for this Friday to make up for it.

I love the San Angelo area. The Scientist went to high school there. It looks like you had a wonderfully relaxing time.

Sue said...

Wait, spring break without snow? How can that be???

Bunny Bunster said...

Very lovely and relaxing. Well, except for the fish that is!!

Glad you had a great time.

Janie said...

We were there on that lake! In a wakeboarding boat!

If we had coordinated better, we could have met!

Dang it!

Glad you had a good time.
