This past weekend was Memorial weekend. I heard the Lake Casa Blanca was jam-packed, full of Laredoans enjoying all that the mighty charco of water can offer in the form of water fun and carne asada.
But, the De Laredo crew was there a few weeks ago, when things were a bit more quiet. It was a quiet Saturday morning when we went to stake out our tables and grills. I know that outsiders cannot quite understand the simplicity of our little lake, especially now that it has a "State Park" designation. But it's the simple little things that one can enjoy.
I know the summer still has a few more holidays coming up. But if you get a chance, go and enjoy Casa Blanca. But be sure to get there early cause the camaradas will be there to stake out the grills before you will.
