Our Last Camping Trip for 2008 (Maybe)
We had a beautiful weekend camping at Tailwater East, Coralville Lake. Saturday was spent with me reading and Bud fishing. We made a trip to Iowa City to run some errands and then returned to the campground to do more fishing and reading. The leaves are beginning to turn and it was cool enough to enjoy sitting around the fire all day(although I had to go between the chair and couch because of my back:( ). The Iowa game was quite a disappointment as we listened to them lose another game. We did a short hike back to "Grandpa's Secret Fishing Spot", as Payton would call it. It is hard to believe the difference the flood has made in the landscape. The shore was eaten away by about 4 feet. It took us a minutes to remember where we have fished in the past as some trees have fallen and the shoreline is so different. The campground wasn't full so it was very quiet and peaceful. The great fisherman didn't have such good luck this time and we came home without any fish. We are going to keep our fingers crossed that we can go camping one last time the weekend after the wedding, (I know it will be the first of Nov., but we'll hope for Indian summer, and our furnace works great!) regardless of whether the house is done or not! For now its back to the grindstone!
