Our Life on the Lake in Texas
In April we decided to move to Texas to live on Lake Fork. I also decided I would go back to work as sitting at home day in and day out is not my idea of fun and excitement. Living near the lake is great, but if I can’t be on the lake every day, then I need something to occupy my time and making a little money to add to the nest egg doesn’t hurt either.
We found this quiet little place to park the RV and in the beginning had planned on living in the RV, but after seeing the beautiful park model homes that the people living on the waterfront lots have it was easy to decide we wanted one of them as well. So we put the Montana up for sale and have been anxiously waiting for a buyer before all the good lots are taken. We thought we had found someone who really wanted the RV and our truck as well, but she is now just giving us the run around, which really aggravates me more than anything. I don’t like other people dictating what I can do with my life; but right now this person has us in a tailspin.
We’ve been out on the boat as much as possible, although I wish we could be out there more than we are, but we both have bad days where we just don’t want to do anything and then of course there’s the rain and wind to contend with some days as well. The lake is pretty, but is very stumpy in some areas, which makes it hard to get around, but we are figuring out the best places to go to avoid them. We’ve been thinking about hiring a guide to take us out so we can find out where the big ones are as my husband loves to bass fish. I tried the last time we were out, but I had no luck. I prefer fishing for bream anyway.
Here’s a few pics I’ve taken on the lake with my iPhone.
