Friday Review

Camping friends and former neighbors are such a treasure. Here are some pictures for you. We typically spend most of our time at the campground eating and enjoying a glass of wine or bottle of beer!






We were at Lake Fork Marina and RV Resort. Lake Fork has the best bass fishing in Texas (according to their ads), and this was hanging on the wall in the restaurant on site.

Since we were only about 30 minutes away from the Canton First Monday Trade Days, we spent one whole day walking through the many huge buildings with vendors and crafts people selling wares. Needless to say I was exhausted after all that. One could rent a scooter and/or a shopping basket (or wagon) to help carry all the stuff out.



You could even buy a boat full of furry critters!


The book signing at the Llano Public Library was fun. There were also some wonderful speakers for us to learn more about our writing goals and ambitions. Six of us from our Women of Words Critique group in Fredericksburg attended.



If you look closely at the picture on the left, it is the cover of my new book, out next month, "Out of Darkness to Accepted Love"



This past weekend there were some 40000 visitors in Fredericksburg for our Oktoberfest. If you are a resident, it's best to stay away from downtown and the Marktplatz. So on Sunday we enjoyed lunch and a wine tasting at Grape Creek Vineyards about five miles out of town. Feel free to click on any of the links for more information.

Do you have big plans for the weekend? Our church sponsors the annual picnic with Texas barbecue and lots of fun this Sunday, so looking forward to that. 

Joining in with Tanyas Willy Nilly Friday 5 (are there five?) and Amy's Five on Friday. Thanks for hosting!

Oh, I am envious...Canton First Monday...lovely! My weekend is, for once, full of fun stuff...supper with a friend tonight, at a **restaurant**! Tomorrow a craft show and Sunday church. I'm taking it easy this weekend; happy weekend to you and yours.

We were camping also last week- love being outdoors near the water, and the weather was just perfect! I haven't been to Canton in years and years and I need to add this to my bucket list to try and go once again. I know everything has been modernized and built up...need to stash some cash away for a good trip.

That sounds like a fun time with friends, food and fellowship. We went to a huge flea market in Myrtle Beach a few years ago. Oh my. So much stuff!! LOL Have a great weekend!

the food spread looks great!

Tom said...

Looks like a great time!

Gail said...

I think I'll hop over and enjoy the cook out, too.

Sounds like a wonderful time. Hope the fair was very successful for you. I'm one of those insecure writers Alex talks about and have never moved to publish.

Have a fantastic weekend.

Betsy Adams said...

Camping with friends/family is always SO much fun --and food (any food) always tastes better when camping....

I never got to Canton --but certainly have heard about it.... Looks like you had a great time.

Congrats on the new book... AWESOME.
Hugs,
Betsy

Camping trips with friends and family are always a good time. You had quite the spread! Looks yummy!

Lin Floyd said...

Marie C said...

Great getting together with friends for a cookout, especially after some successful bass fishing! I bet the Trade Days, Oktoberfest and other events were great too. Fall is so great for things like this!

The Yum List said...

What a lovely location by the water for a bbq.
