There had been stories coming by me about a fishing location near the town of Bayside. It was time to check out the stories. The drive is very short by Texas standards. Twenty five minutes after starting the Truck we were at the silted in boat ramp. The view below is east toward the town.
An extremely friendly Joe from Sinton came driving up shortly after the Team arrived. Joe explained where and how to fish in the area. A few minutes later Crazy Bob came driving up with a boat to launch. We had a great visit between all of us. Crazy Bob was nearly to his 81st birthday according to him. He was moving very good.
After a bit Crazy Bob and his friend went to launch the boat. Then Joe told me his fish catching secret. He soaks his bait shrimp in GARLIC SALT before using it for bait. So now the secret is out!!! Here is Joe setting up his poles for the afternoons catching session.
Joe told me of a park in Bayside with rest rooms and tables to go with the pier. A little wandering around found the park. It is small but very nice. The pier is very well done and provides good access to the bay.
On shore is the kid playground and equipment. It also is very nice. Parking is for about twenty vehicles.
The Team wandered around the small town of Bayside until it was all traveled. The trip back to the Castle was smooth and uneventful.
Back in the campground many folks are preparing to end their stay of the winter season. There will be folks leaving frequently for the next two weeks. Here is one of the not so light travelers getting things ready to go. Exactly what else goes on that trailer will be found out when it is loaded. For now it is already a big load. It is pretty much guaranteed the motorhome is over loaded with that load.
Traveling near that rig while in motion is not my idea of a good place to be.
My body and especially my legs can tell that our location is Welder Park. The distances between things around here have got me doing a lot more walking. The sore leg muscles are keeping a record of how much waling is done for me. Late this evening a walk in the flowers was taken with the hope of a decent picture. Well the picture is marginal at best but you can get an idea of the size of one of the flower patches in the park.
The bright sunshine and 75 degree weather made for a wonderful day of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
