12th Annual Camping Trip at Fort De Soto

We had our 12th annual camping trip at Fort De Soto and finally, a weekend without wind!  We had great weather this year.  For the first time we did not have a fishing tournament but that didn’t keep us from catching.  Some of participated in a fishing clinic with Neil Taylor.  Unfortunately, one of us flipped our boat after turning to toss out the anchor, right after pulling the phone out to snap a picture of the fish.  So while the fishing rod was recovered, the waters of Fort De Soto have gobbled another cell phone.  Others caught trout and one lady fish.

Kim decided to take over the scavenger hunt this year and revised it, after participating in a scavenger hunt with her Krewe.  She organized it so people participated in teams of three and it was limited to the one loop, so people didn’t have to explore the entire campground to find items on the list.  I do not remember who the winners were but will try to update later with that information.

At our group dinner, the theme was the 50s and many people dressed up.  The food was great ranging from various kinds of shrimp to chicken to pork.  As usual we had too much!  Lots of good sides, salads and desserts.

On Sunday, there was yoga for some and more kayaking or fishing for others.  Then some of us packed up and headed home, while others spent one more evening out there, enjoying a quiet evening on the water with another beautiful sunset.
