|A view outisde our cabin.|
Going to the lake was the best thing I could have done for myself. What a great way to heal the body and mind. When we found our destination spot, Golden Cove, we were pleased with the view of the lake so we decided to stay there. Besides the fact that the small cabin (Who needs much room at the lake? We spend most of our time outdoors anyway - just a place to flop at the end of the day.) didn’t have a closet or pegs or anything to hang clothes on, or that it didn’t have pots or pans, or any kitchen utensils, or a remote for the TV (Hubby’s necessity), the cabin was comfortable. Next time we will be more prepared and know what we need to bring. Most of the other places we’ve been do provide those items listed above, or they used to.

Since there weren’t any closets, we were going to live out of our suitcase, so I unpacked the laptop and turned it on, but couldn’t get a WiFi connection to the internet so gave up trying. This actually turned out to be a good thing and kept me from being able to log on and use up precious disconnection time. Disconnect to reconnect.
Disconnect from the internet and social media and Reconnect with the soul, nature, and real face-to-face people.
Once we settled in, we put our lawn chairs out and watched the golden oranges and reds of the Texas sunset settling over the water. I brought a variety of “soft foods” for me to eat because of my recent dental work, but since I couldn’t cook anything, there wasn’t much for Honeybunch to eat, so we went out to dinner at one of the local restaurants. Turned out they didn’t have a lot I could eat, but that was okay since I could stand to lose a pound or two.

with corn too.

That had to have been one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had. What a treat! Thanks, Honey, for talking me into going. I’d love to hear some of your memorable experiences. Please leave me a comment!
Happy exploring and making memories!
