Last year we vowed to fish more, we also wanted to camp more and just be together, outdoors enjoying ourselves more. Farming certainly gave us an opportunity for that but there is something to be said about fishing, especially when we have an avid fisherman on our hands. So amid a weekend of celebration we took time for our first trip of the year to nearby Keller Lake.
When we got there Two was off like a shot to pick out the best spot with his rod and tackle.
The girls were a little more distracted by a hole in the bridge
and our neighbors.
It was cold and windy. The wind was in our face and with the lay out of the lake there wasn’t really anywhere we could go that would carry our bobber away rather they pushing it towards shore. There were a ton of carp jumping but try catching a picture of them. We didn’t catch anything but Mavis had a great time feeling the wind in her face and Two and Avril explored while I reveled in the idea that my children were completely content and happy in this setting and being there as a family.
We did find some other treasures though, like this mummified frog
and a fresh water snail.
In the end it was a perfect end to a wonderful day and weekend. Even if we didn’t catch anything.
