The hiking paths are generally deserted and allowed opportunities for some off leash romp time for Remi. Too many possible distractions for the Audrey girl to be trusted. Armadillos, squirrels, birds and deer in abundance.
...and an occasional tortoise.....
Most of us were parked in the woods a bit away from the water front. It cut down on the wind chill coming off the lake on the windy cold days but Anita had the lake view and took advantage of the pelican flock entertainment option.

Watching the sun finally burn through the morning fog.

Carol and Anita.
Liz conferring with a young man about his fishing recommendations. Liz's grandson and a friend were coming over later that day to try their hands at catching dinner.
.....Roads diverging around the lake. Pick one.
Soos and I headed down the road in her truck to pick through the scrap pile for some lumber to burn.
I narrowly missed an attack of fire ants from the hill I seemed to have disturbed. That was fine because I apparently attracted enough chigger bites to make up for what ever pain I missed out on from the ants.
Nan and Donna working on connecting up Donna's rig.
Donna and Phebe.
Small Alligator off on the middle of the lake.

Vickie (of Vicki and Dave) was responsible to picking the dates and the location of this GTG. Since they also belong to a Dutch Oven Group (DOG) that was scheduled for a GTG dinner that last Sunday we were all invited to participate in the pot luck. We were not expected to cook in Dutch Ovens. The pictures below are representative of a DOG potluck. Looks a little different from the normal carry-ins doesn't it?
Main course, breads or desserts......it all came to the table as a result of cooking in a cast iron skillet.
After a relaxing week of walking miles and over eating too many desserts Liz and I drove back to our spots in McIntosh. The next day the rig had an appointment at Tri-Am RV Dealer for a solar check up and some much needed repair work on the aging electric cord connecting the rig to the tow vehicle.
Audrey and Remi and I settled down in the waiting area; I with my computer, Audrey with her blanket and Remi with a new friend that he just met.
