How could I not as I sit and think about what a great weekend we had. Yesterday was the best. Storm got me up at 6 and we were fishing by 7 ;-) It started at our fishing hole but we just were not getting any bites and it was becoming a busy spot so we decided to go on an adventure. We went to this other place in Hollandlanding, a public trail along a river, near a dam. It was beautiful. It also had the bonus of dogs. ;-) Wish I had thought to bring mine..
Storm would fish and I walked the path saying good morning to all passers by and their pooches. I talk to everyone.
You can go a while without seeing anyone and the freakiest thing happened RIGHT where we were fishing and I saw the whole thing. It played in my mind slow motion a few times yesterday. A kid was walking by, about 17 (looked about Storm's age) I said 'Hi' and he did too with a smile, and then -a guy on his bike (looked like he did this all the time) was riding past with his dog on the leash - a beautiful Husky -and as I looked at the dog I realized what was happening an could not get the words out soon enough! The kid was close-lined! He flew up into the air like a toon! Flat on his back OUCH!! The guy on the bike was very, very, sorry- the obviously well trained dog was very sorry for what he done and the kid of course was up in a flash and blushing like he tripped! I asked him if he was o.k. and he said 'yes he was..' A few words passed and I told him "well not to many people can say they were close lined by a dog.." He laughed and went on his way. The guy on the bike still shaken up sat for a few minutes more. I just thanked God it was not the old lady I had seen earlier. OR ME! LOL Anyhow - no fish, a few nibbles, lots of turtles and much to explore.
Home at lunch for food, a swim with dad and the dogs then we went out again. Norm not much of a fisherman and you know his mind is else where these days.....
A friend said we could use the dock ;-)) It was so beautiful. Our catch you can see! I caught the first one and Storm was jealous- hee hee hee. We talked and laughed. At one point I realize- Storm walking ahead of me carrying his Pole. Me carrying: My sketchbooks, munchies, beverages, my pole, my camera and the Buddha bacon bait;-) And Storms napsack, his sweater, bait box.. I just had to laugh - he did too when he realized why I was laughing. I am his fishing sherpa. Actually he said, he is Jeremy and I am his his camera guy. LOL
Again a beautiful weekend. Oh and God provided the rainbow to make the day complete.
