2011 Matagorda Madness

It was time for the annual December Matagorda Madness Rally with our fiberglass RV pals. We coaxed the Wonder Egg out of its comfy new nest to go relax by the beach.

Matagorda Madness was named for the unpredictable weather that can be found this time of year. 2011's early December climate could not have been better. We thought of all our fiberglass friends who put their trailers to bed months ago for winter hibernation. Here in Texas, we were kicking back and enjoying colorful sunsets and sunrises.

The fishing fleet departed like clockwork every morning as coffee brewed in the Wonder Egg.

A friendly fiberglass village grew up at the Matagorda Bay nature Park and we were even visited by a well kept, vintage Love Bug!

What would a Texas fiberglass trailer rally be without gathering around Ranger Duke's place to enjoy his famous poppers! Those grilled jalapenos, stuffed with sausage and wrapped in bacon simply melt in your mouth. Yum!

Oscar enjoyed a romp on the beach where he could let loose and run with his pals. Here he is ears-a-flyin' and taking up his big-dog stance that he does when romping with larger dogs. I think he surprised Guinness with this maneuver.

Oscar looked down the beach, yelled "Yippie . . . there she is!" and took off running to jump up into the arms of none other than Mrs Santa Claus whom he gave an earful about all the presents he wanted for Christmas.

This fine group of people has the feeling of an extended family as we gather with our trailers, share good times and create new memories.

After the relaxing, sunsets, sunrises, poppers, and beach run, and catching up with friends, we packed up and headed for home. All the way home, Oscar kept reliving his beach excursion and asking me when we were coming back.

"Next year little dog, next year . . ."
