We are now officially Matagorda weekenders!
A new section opened up at Pelican Point RV Park and we decided to rent a space and keep our travel trailer down there full time. We moved it in on Monday.
This is the view of the Colorado River from our spot.
A few weeks ago we saw a bald eagle perched in one of the trees on the opposite bank. It was far away, but we confirmed it with a pair of binoculars. We are told there is an eagle's nest up the river.
After setting up the trailer, there was just enough daylight left to test out the waters. John caught the first fish--a nice sized sand trout.
Not to be outdone, I caught two at once.
We fished until sunset, catching several more sandies while being serenaded by the sounds of nature: cows mooing across the river, an owl hooting from his hidden spot in a tree, coyotes howling in the distance.
We said a prayer that night, thanking God for giving us this peaceful place to spend our weekends.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. ~James 1:17
