The rest of the time in Okeechobee

Friday was rather stormy and rainy, but cleared up during the afternoon.  The boys squeezed in another 9 holes, and after dinner, Brant wanted to go fishing.  Working on earning his fishing beltloop, he headed down to the dock with Pop Pop.  I followed about 20 minutes later, and enjoyed the evening on the dock.  Not much was biting, but Brant did bait his own hook!

The lilly pads with rain drops

Mom Mom and Pop Pop were getting their snuggles in with the boys, since we had to leave the next day.

Before the evening ended though, we realized we'd not been down to the Lake.  So we hopped in the van and headed down.  It was actually a bit chilly, after the rain, so we didn't stay long.

There were some fishermen on the dock,  and just as we were walking by, one caught a fairly large catfish.  Brant went over to see, and the fisherman suggested I take a photo, like Brant caught it!!
 Meanwhile, Daddy and Henry were taking a walk.  I love their hands in this shot.

And the beautiful egret...

A very peaceful way to say goodbye to Okeechobee for the year.  It's one of our favorite places to go now, and we are already looking forward to next spring break!
