It was great because almost no one went there back then so it was mostly the horses and a few people with boats. We camped and also slept on the boat for over a week and the big thing was shrimping at night. We brought huge coolers of shrimp we caught in the nets back with us. Ah memories. It's fun for me to come here and feel like I'm visiting a neighbor.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyPERBS9:08 PMSuch a peaceful scene!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyLori9:39 PMNow thats where I want to be!!
