CAMPGROUND: 2nd night at Bay View RV Resort

George and our friend Rob got up at the crack of dawn to go out on a charter fishing boat for a half-day fishing trip.
While they were fishing, Rob’s wife Irene and I walked Trix their dog around the RV park. The park has a lake where we spotted these beautiful flamingos.
The boys returned at noon with a TON of fish! Redfish, drum, sheepshead, and trout. Wow! We packaged everything up and froze most, saving redfish filets for tonight’s dinner. Here are photos of their trip….
We drove in to the very cute town of Rockport. We strolled around the historic district which has lots of shops selling beachwear, beach-style decor, and knick-knacks. Trix was allowed in all the shops and was greatly admired.
Back at the park, I made us all margaritas which went down well. The boys fired up their gas grills.
DINNER: Starter was the filets from the drum George caught yesterday at Lake Corpus Christi. I sauted them in the iron skillet over the grill with butter and garlic. For the main meal, each couple shared a redfish filet (quite large). Irene made steamed broccoli, cauliflower and potatoes for us as sides. We paired the meal with an Italian white wine. All very very good!
