Home at Last

Have you ever felt like you had a home-away-from-home?

Sometimes when you visit a place you get a sense that you belong and fit in. Even though I know this life is temporary and that one day we will all be faced with an eternal home, there are places on this earth where I feel more at home than others.

Tracy and I have come to feel that way about Texas. We have lived in several states and to us there is simply no place like Texas. We have both lived in several Texas towns and have seen much of the state but lately Matagorda County has captured our hearts like no other place. We have spent a considerable amount of time during the past year exploring and at last our dream of establishing a footprint in Matagorda has become a reality.

Our number came up on the waiting list at Pelican Point RV & Boat Slips and we moved the Prowler into space number seven.

This spot is on the end and has a clear view of the Colorado River. It is not technically a river side spot which we like as those are more expensive!

We are about 125 ft from the water and are on a bend in the river.

Not long after getting the power, water, & sewer hooked up, I had to see if there were any hungry fish. This nice sized sand trout answered my question.

Tracy came out to join me and soon had a double hookup on the Gulp Swimming Mullet.

We caught several over the next couple of days despite the cooler temps. Some of them were more than respectable as evidenced by this fat 15 - incher.

Lord willing, this will be the first of many sunsets we will see out the window of PP #7.

I understand and appreciate the feeling. Looks like a nice spot to hang your hat.

I think PP#7 will be a fish cleaning and eating station for some time to come....anybody need a dog?
