Spring Break 2013 is on now!?? Mississippi is in full swing and Arkansas is??gearing up.
Greeting the young families, some heading out on their first adventures together puts a lightness in my step. Folks are beginning to jig up crappies and brim from our fishing pier while the bass fishermen are exploring all along the shorelines to ambush their prey.?? Catfish are finding their way to baits as well.??We’ve got a big new Arkansas Razorback swing for relaxation and fun and we just broke out a soccer ball and basketball for kids of all ages.?? Tonight we will once again set up our large reflector telescope to watch the moon as well as Jupitor while sharing our collective knowledge of?? the universe in which we are specks.
Its a great day to relax on the shores of Lake Chicot here at Pecan Grove RV Park.
