Just another beautiful day in coastal Texas. A great morning walk of the brisk pace variety made for a wonderful beginning of the easy going day.

From the Memorial Park we headed down to the waterfront areas to seek a fish to catch. The main rock pier was nearly vacant and the wind was mild, so out on it we went. Conditions were very nice and quickly the OFM was getting bites from some sort of fish. A few casts later we caught the evidence, landed it and reached for the camera way back there in Sierra. So we measured the very fat speckled trout and it was ½ inch to short to keep. Back in it went to grow up.

The other fellow on the pier caught a couple just like the OFM catch. So we know there was a school of under size trout in the water around the rocks of the pier. Shortly after the other fellow left, a friend, Tim and his owner Gabby came walking up. Gabby is the cutest and friendliest black and white terrier we have ever met. Tim and the OFM got to talking and no more fish were caught. The OFM got in an hour of pet Gabby for a minute, stand up and talk to Tim for several minutes and then Gabby would swing back by for another petting. It was a great morning.

The rest of the day was spent just taking it easy until near dark. Then we logged in to Fox Tales website (http://www.theboondork.com/mainphp ) .

Mr. Boondork is out in Arizona trying out a new style of boondocking. He is using a pickup truck camper of a small size to live in the desert for a few months. He reports what he is finding and the good and bad and Kinda sorta ok parts of the style. IF you ever wanted to get the real facts on minimal size boondocking then now is the time to hit up his blog for real facts. We are following it very carefully.

Since the OFM has become somewhat decrepit and had to give up needing bicycles, kayaks and rough country toys of all sorts, we have lots of excess room in the Castle. So we are carefully learning about using smaller rigs and still having plenty of comfort in our life. Smaller rigs also give you a LOT more versatility in where and how you camp and travel IN COMFORT while you are out trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Glad you had a comfortable walk in...it may get a bit cooler down there. It has here, not much, but a mild little front has come through today. No big wind. Probably won't affect your fishing, but I don't have a clue about those things.

  2. I'm late but wanted to thank you for your service to our country on Veteran's Day.
