Fobb Bottom Spots You Make The Rockin’ World Go Round

Sunday we went on an adventure.  Keith played with his Christmas toy, a metal detector, and I played with my camera.

The water level at Lake Texoma is seriously low, which Keith thought would make a good opportunity to comb the now huge beaches.  We went to Fobb Bottom Wildlife Management Area, which is an area where our former lake neighbors Bill & Stiffie Turner camped at for weeks at a time (we now own their lake home).  We have fond memories of a lush area with a good swimming and fishing during the summer.  I’m sure that some Fobb Bottom spots have made someone’s rockin’ world go round but right now winter, drought and fire have limited its appeal.

The water level is way down at Fobb Bottom.
