Brenham and Bluebonnets

Monday, we moved to Rocky Creek Corps of Engineers Park, on Lake Somerville.  Just a few miles north of Brenham.  The picture above is the view from our front door.  We love CoE Parks! This one is on a peninsula, so we have water views on three sides.

There's opportunities to indulge ourselves in so many of our favorite things here...history, just down the road Independence and Washington-on-the-Brazos and Round Top and more...wildflowers all over the place...great restaurants (we've already had some of the best Mexican food I've ever had in my life - at a great price too)...worship, there are plenty of  churches to choose from here.  In fact, the Texas Baptist Historical Museum is right down the road. Blue Bell Ice Cream (first thing on our list)...and for Cowboy, fishing.

Well, almost.

Once we got the 5er (fifth wheel) set up, the first thing he did was unload his little inflateable boat.  That's when he realized he'd forgotten to bring the seat to the boat.  Bummer.  But they say the fishing hasn't been too good here anyway, what with the lake being a couple of feet high, and they are letting water out of the spillway.  Yep, you read that right.  This lake is actually too full.  Wish they'd send some of it towards North Central or West Texas! That hasn't stopped him from fishing off the bank, though.  Like they say, a bad day of fishing is better than...well, I can't think of anything it would be better than, but I'm sure my Cowboy could.

The weather has been perfect all week, but it's windy and rainy here today, so we are heading to town after lunch to see a movie.  Probably either Cinderella or Do You Believe?

We're really not that far from home, if anyone needs a little vacation, you could come see us!  Here's another photo to tempt you.  Took this one between Brenham and the park.
