March 25-29, 2013. We had our first week of Spring Break with Jeanne's kids and grandkids at Logan's Landing on Logan Martin Lake in Alpine, Alabama. It's about 90 minutes from our house. It's a great campground for kids with heated restrooms and showers, a laundry room, store, and a well-stocked fishing lake. The main lake and swimming pool will open around the end of April. Our site was located on the fishing lake (B78). The boys, ages 8, 10, and 13, love fishing.
The campground is also a safe place for kids to ride their bikes.
Here's Bear ready for a ride!
Bear's first fish.
As you can see, it was cold the first part of the week.
We found this eagle's nest not too far from the campground! She swooped down and took her place as we watched.
Daughter Amy and hubby Brian just invested in a new pontoon boat. Of course, it had to be Kentucky blue!!
Our site on the Fishing Lake. The weather was chilly so the fire felt great!!
This is Cole, our neighbor, with his catch.
Tim's son Josh is big into hunting and fishing. He killed his first deer this year.
Grandson Kaeden with his fish.
Amy and Bear with his fish. I believe this was the largest of the day.
The next morning the boys threw Doritos on the lake to attract the fish, then started catching one after the other.
Amy caught the smallest of all, but still seems to be enjoying it!!
It was Friday before Easter so one of the activities was dying eggs of course!!
Amy and Bear.
Tracy and Kaeden.
Our friends invited us over for Gumbo. This is how he cooked it on his patio. It was delish!!
Our Chef "Navy" Wayne and his wife Becky.
Here comes Peter Cottontail...NOT hopping down the bunny trail...but rode in on his golf cart.
Pretty big crowd of Easter egg hunters!
Zane is Navy Wayne and Becky's grandson. His basket wasn't big enough!!
The paddle boats are free to residents and renters. Amy took the boys out.
The cabins in the background have been purchased. There are a few on the lake for sale. Logan's Landing rents a two bedroom cabin, but it's not this pretty and not on the lake. Daughter and hubby Tim rented it since it was way too cold for a tent!
The one man paddle boats were a big hit!! The boys had a great time bike riding, fishing, paddle boating, cooking hot dogs and roasting marshmellows over the fire. It's always a lot of work to camp, but always so much fun to be together!
