The Fishing Hole

The Fishing Hole - This is where we go crappie fishing in East Texas. A very relaxing view as twilight approaches.

I wanted to share a new picture with you. It's the view I've had for the last few weekends and it's very relaxing after a long week of work. Hubby and I have been camping and crappie fishing on some family property in east Texas. There is only electricity on the property and we camp in a tent each year as we clear the overgrown weeds and vines. Hubby's first chore when we get there is to mow to this spot on the edge of the creek. After working during the day, this is the view we have in the evening as the sun starts to go down and the fish start biting. :D

Multi purpose tent topper - I realised the top of my tent could be used as a make shift shower curtain. :)
We're taking advantage of the good weather while we can. We've been here in July and it can be miserable if you don't bring along a few comforts from home. Hubby recently bought me a solar shower so we can take a nice hot shower after working on the cleanup all day. You fill the bag with water & set it in the sun for a few hours & it really does get warm. Hubby didn't think about where we would take a shower when he got it though. This was what I came up with, lol.

Nice Stringer of fish - These were the biggest crappie of the 34 we caught last weekend.
The last time we went, I only caught two the whole weekend. Hubby did well though. He got to clean 34 fish and asked me to take a pic of the largest ones. :)

What a lovely spot Lynn - the fishing hole looks so peaceful. What a great way to relax after a day of hard work. Do you eat the fish you catch?

This is the next project - This is the next spot that needs to be cleared when we go back again this weekend. Talk about overgrown!
It is great to get away from everything on the weekends. Of course, it's better after the clearing gets done. No ringing phones, no kids running in & out, just watching the bobber. :D
