Hope everyone has a safe new year's eve and a great 2012!
I've had camping and fishing on my mind lately, must be spring fever setting in early. :)
Before Christmas I checked out two small lakes someone had told me about...
the first one had plenty of trees, the camp sites looked a bit crowded but I suppose that's to be expected in this area. There aren't many lakes or bodies of water here to choose from. :)
I have not heard how the fishing is but it might be worth a try.
The little lake had a cafe. The first thing I spotted was this old cooker parked behind the building. I had to check it out. lol
The second lake I checked out was covered with birds. (not the best pic, it was taken through the pickup window).
Due to the drought, the little lake was pretty low. There were more trees in the lake than around the shoreline.
The water line (where the logs are)... at one time the lake must have been fairly deep.
I'm not quite convinced it would be a good fishing/camping lake but it would be a great place to spend the afternoon skipping rocks. :)
Thinking back, 2011 was an interesting year... Quite a few highs and lows. Good friend Chris says "The pain and joy let me know I am alive." :)
I'm thankful for my family and friends, and will never take anything for granted.
No matter how bad things seem, they could always be worse. I am thankful for all I have.
Life's too short to sweat the small stuff and as another friend Chris said the other day "Remember, the potential to smile is always here with us." :)
I plan on smiling a LOT in 2012. :)
Hope everyone has a good one!
