Camping at Waco Lake

We spent the last two nights camping at Reynolds Creek Park -- a U. S. Army
Corps of  Engineers Campground on the shores of Waco Lake at Waco, Texas.
We always enjoy looking out the window and seeing a lake.
Shortly after we arrived and set up the campsite I found this
stick insect (aka "walking stick")
enjoying the sunshine on the side of our RV.
On our walks we found quite a variety of interesting wildflowers --
some of which we cannot yet name.
We enjoyed this patch of Mexican Hat flowers.
 The lavender blooms in the background are Canadian Thistles.
For senior citizens the cost of camping at a Corps of Engineers park is great.
Simply present a "Golden Age Passport" card (oops I am showing my age)
which is now called the America the Beautiful pass and get 50% off the
regular fee.  We paid $10.00 per night for those two nights.
(There are some benefits for which I happily pay Federal taxes.)
