Texas Tidbits : Rockwall

Sitting on the shores of 22,000 acre+ Lake Ray Hubbard, Rockwall is a city located just east of Dallas on I-30. As I was looking up information for this post, I was a bit surprised at just much the area has changed since the last time I was at the lake. For one thing, there is The Harbors. Looks like a nice place to have a good lunch, shop a little and sit with old friends and catch up with each other. (Kim Skeene Henning, I read your Facebook  post this morning) The Texas Queen is a 105-foot double decker paddle wheel boat that offers dinner cruises, reservations required.
Lake Ray Hubbard was an almost daily stop for me for a long time. The lake is/was the location of two "crappie houses" (literally a house anchored on the water with most of the floor cut out for access to the water) that feature some fine crappie angling. If these crappie houses are still open, by all means go! White perch are some damn good eatin'.
While in Rockwall, you might wanna stop by the Rockwall County Historical Museum. Rockwall County may be the smallest county in Texas, but it offers big fun for the whole family.
