Table Rock Lake part 1 ↠ Fishing in the rain.

The first two days of our trip to Table Rock Lake, MO ended up being rainy and cold, but that didn't stop us from having fun. Our first full day at the lake it was really pouring and we played some Yahtzee until it let up a bit and then headed out on the boat to catch some fish. The second day it was mostly just mist, so my Dad and I explored a new area (I'll be posting about that separately) before heading out on the boat.

I loved getting all bundled up and fishing in the rain. So much better than staying in and watching lame cable all day. Rainy movie days are fun, but not when you're staring out at the pretty lake and wishing you were out there. We were only people out on the lake both days and that made it that much better. I love it when we get the lake all to ourselves.

We caught enough fish to make ourselves dinner the next night and had a great time in the process. And if you haven't tried the Blue Moon Seasonal Sampler yet, go get it! I loved them all, but the limited edition strawberry one and the Agave Nectar were my favorites.

Table Rock Lake part 2 ↠ Sweet sunshine.

The last two days of our trip to Table Rock Lake were (thankfully) full of wonderful sunshine and I made sure to enjoy every minute I could soaking up the much needed vitamin D. There just hasn't been enough sun here in Kansas lately for my taste (as I'm typing this it's a gloomy day with even a bit of snow falling here in KS) and I intended to get my fill of it while I could.

I was so happy to come back with some much needed color on my face and a lot more energy than when I left. I know I’ve been dragging lately and I blame the lack of vacation time. And although I have thrown myself back into work this week, these pictures help to remind me of the gorgeous, calm water that I miss already...
