Settling Back at Inks Lake

After being at a rally with 140 trailers (a veritable small city), 8 of us "Eggers" decided to head to Inks Lake State Park for a no-agenda-rally to kick back, relax, and enjoy just "being."

Oscar picked out a nice spot for The Wonder Egg and supervised as I set up camp.

I took the yak out on the lake and enjoyed come catch-and-release games with numerous fish. Most of all, I enjoyed the ability to quietly ease up on wildlife, unnoticed, and get some pics.
This sleeping duck ha no idea I was within 6 feet in the "stealth yak" enjoying the scenery.

Oscar took the camera out later and got a nice photo of some goslings with their mom.

Jim and Weenie stopped by the campsite for a nice visit . . .

Some folks ask "Just what do you DO at these rallies, Pete?" I tell them most of the quality time is spent with friends, kicking back, playing board games, talking about our travels and families, enjoying the weather and beauty around us and being at ease with life . . . like this!

That's our travels for now, we hope to be back on the road in a few weeks, after hanging around here waiting for g'baby #5 to pop into the world and say hello to everyone.
'Til next time!

Seems you have good things to look forward to: more travelling and another grandchild!
The kayak was a good investment!
Could you email me the postal address of grandchild nr 5 (and the parents obviously!)?
