My Camp Mack Weekend!!

Camp Mack in central Fl. is one of my all time favorite places to camp, it is like old Florida used to be, little has changed and when you drive down the long and winding road passing old country stores and beautiful farm land you feel like you have gone back in time! There are old oak trees covered in moss, dirt roads, fishing stories told beside the never ending fire pit, food being served at Rosies Diner and the sound of airboats going by in the canal, ahhhh, I want to turn around and go back!!
Look at those beautiful trees................

This is the bait house........


Need gas anyone??..........................



Rosies Diner...............A little slow right now, it was to early.




Ohhhh and we can't forget the fisherman................I mentioned the fish stories right?? They really caught 35 fishies for our fish fry (:





A view of the canal......................






Our fish fry............ I made grits and hush puppies to go with the Spec fish, YUMMY, it was so good! From the left my Daddy, Jeff's Mom and Dad, Me and Jeff. I hoped you enjoyed your visit to Camp Mack. Ya'll come back now ya hear!! (;

THANK YOU FOR LETTING US ALL GO TO CAMP MAC WITH YOU. WHAT AN AWESOME PLACE. WHEN I WAS GROWING UP WE ALWAYS WENT TO ARKANSAS FISHING AND CAMPING FOR TWO WEEKS ONLY WE STAYED IN A TWO ROOM TENT AND MOTHER AND DADDY HAD A FULL SIZE ROLL AWAY BED AND WE HAD OUR COTS ON THE OTHER PART OF THE TENT ....I LIKE YOUR LITTLE CAMP HOUSE ALOT BETTER.
IT IS SUCH AN AWESOME PLACE AND WHERE DOES THE CANAL ACTUALLY LEAD TO.......
I THINK I ALREADY HAVE YOU LISTED UNDER MY FAVORITE BLOGS BUT I DON'T REMEMBER THAT BEAUTIFUL BANNER AT THE TOP.
BLESSINGS
