Camping at Lake Sommerville

We've been enjoying exploring Texas state parks in our RV.  Our most recent visit was to Lake Sommerville SP.  The sites were great!  Relatively flat (which is a big plus with an RV), spacious, and lots of forestry between sites so that they seem secluded.  The trails were a little disappointing (very overgrown, not clearly marked), with the exception of the big trail that connects the 2 Sommerville parks (which provided a lovely run for me one morning).  The roads were excellent for biking and we did a lot of biking throughout the park.  We also enjoyed lots of wildlife viewing - deer, rabbits, various birds, and water moccasins (okay, we didn't really enjoy that last one - the several that we saw).  It was a beautiful state park and we had a wonderful time.

Ducking under a tree that fell across the trail.

Snack time!

Dawson was my bike buddy!  We biked for miles, up and down hills, through all areas of the park.

Another bike ride - this time all together.

Playing badminton in the road in front of our campsite.

Brady goofing off while decorating our area with his sidewalk chalk art.

The most fun we had was with our water guns.  The whole family joined in on this game and had fun attacking and squirting each other.

Lots of laughs during water fun.

Some relaxing time cooling off in the RV with a good book.

Carefully coloring.
