Easter Camping

V and I really enjoy camping together. Sometimes we camp with large groups of kids, grand kids and friends. Sometimes it is just the two of us. We camp at State Parks, and in wilderness areas, private campgrounds and on dry spots along the river. Some of our favorite places to camp are the Army Corps of Engineers campgrounds located on our nation's lakes.

This weekends trip was just the two of us at a small campground below the Possum Kingdom Dam on the Brazos River.

The campground itself is no great shakes, just a place to pitch a tent and hang out when you are not fishing.

(Also a place to hang wet clothes after falling in the river)

We were there to get out of town, slow down a bit, and fish.

The fishing was a bit slow, I think we were about two weeks early for the best bite. We caught Black Bass, Yellow Bass, White Bass and one small Hybrid. Heck, I even caught a Black Crappie on a 3/4 oz. Striper Jig. We caught our dinner, but had to work for it. We may have to head back in a couple of weeks and see if we can get in to some of those Sripers that this bit of water is famous for.

Oh, Monday morning we woke to frost on the tent, great snuggling weather.

One last image, just for the heck of it.
