I woke pretty early and went down for coffee with the guys for the last time. Most of them will already be gone when we return to Rayford in April, so it was kind of a sad time for me, but we'll stay in touch.
Much of my outside work had been done, so getting ready went pretty fast. As usual, there were a lot of our friends that came by to tell us goodbye but we finally pulled out about 10:30. We made really good time and got to the South Toledo Bend state park in Anacoco Louisiana about 2PM. All of our friends were already here and set up, so as soon as we got set, we went over to the fire between David and Bill's trailers. This became our hangout for the entire weekend.
We were at this park a couple of years ago, and this year's party is shaping up to be as much fun as the first one. The only bad thing was that the lake was down about 20 feet, as most of the lakes in Texas are. I guess that makes sense, since the lake separates Texas and Louisiana. The park covers 1,000 acres and is one of two Louisiana parks on the Toledo Bend reservoir. The park is also a nesting ground for bald eagles but we didn't see any this trip. We're still looking forward to a great time with our friends.
