Escapist Coloring Club-November 1st Entry

 

Well, it’s November 1st and today I have a new entry for Linda G Hill’s Escapist Coloring Club. 

If you want to play along, click the link and follow the simple rules.

I did this one with my glitter gel pens, this is my favorite medium so far. Since I have a kit with 100 different colors, I have so many more options now! Sometimes I mix it up with colored pencils, but not this time. I’m still working out of the same book all of my other entries came from.

Bass Camp-Lake Fork

No Fish Yet  Plenty of Fauna

Nestled among the pines and the cypress trees just south of Yantis, Texas is a spot my brother-in-law and his friend have been going to for fourteen years now. They call it bass camp, a gathering of good friends for fishing, fellowship, eating, and lots of shenanigans. Last night, Dave and I arrived just in time for some freshly caught crappie and French fries, and the gathering get-to-know ya group around the fire. The drinks were flowing but no blood got spilled, so it was a good night.

Dave hasn’t been anywhere to relax and decompress since vacation last summer, so it was high time we had a little get away. Let’s just say the drinking commenced and luckily, we had plans to get up early and go fishing or we would have been in serious trouble. As it was, we had mild hangovers that good coffee and a home made taquito fixed right up.

Leaving out this morning on our way to what turned out to be a fruitless fishing trip (hope we have better luck this evening) I snapped some pictures of the beauty surrounding us. Unfortunately, I was too busy keep my line in the water to take pictures of the magnificent herons, egrets and turtles we saw while out, but I do hope you enjoy the pics I took. More to come tomorrow especially if it storms all day as predicted 😔 Dave said even being stuck in the trailer would be better than being at work though. 😊 I’ll take some more pics tonight for tomorrow’s post.

We are in the Wildwood camper with Bubba and Connie. Actually, she arrives tonight, she missed last night’s feast and fun. Lucky, there’s tonight and tomorrow-pray for an early break in the rain. 😉

Finally Finished!

I don’t remember when I started my picture, suffice it to say, I thought I’d have much more time to color than I did. Actually, I could have been coloring many nights when I was watching Tv, but that old iPad is a hard habit to break. 😊 Anyway, as a new contributor to the Escapist Coloring Club, I wanted to get my entry in for this, the month of March. Thanks to Darswords for introducing me to this club, I did not know it existed before you opened my eyes. Nyhoo, here’s my “masterpiece” which I may actually frame, since it took so long to get er done, lol.

Had I really been committed, it probably wouldn’t have taken me that long at all. I’ll do better in the future. 😊

Thnks to Linda G. Hill for creating the original post.
