308: Gone fishingPosted: July 28, 2011
The guys went fishing yesterday evening. Noah caught five fish. M caught one. It was considered a successful outing. All fish were returned to the water as part of our usual catch and release program. The program is a result of not having the proper equipment to clean a fish and an unwillingness to do the actual cleaning even if we had the proper equipment. Well, unwillingness on my part at least. Any of the guys would likely do it.
The weather today is rainy and warm. Thankfully it is not going to get as hot as previously predicted. M and I are going on a bike ride this afternoon and it will be warm and steamy enough in the upper 80s. The 90s would be too much.
While M and I are off on our cycling adventure, Noah and Dad will be touring the Pro Football Hall of Fame. M has been there already and I, frankly, have no interest in going. I’m sure Dad and Noah will enjoy it as they are both fans of the game.
In the meantime, we have been watching the Pond Show. The rain brought a Great Blue Heron looking for breakfast. While he was slowly, slowly moving around the pond, two very large red-tailed hawks came flying out of the willow trees just above where the heron was hunting. The heron appeared to have been aware of them as he spread his wings to show them how big he is just before the hawks came flying out of the trees. I’m hoping our resident fox will put in an appearance soon.
That’s it from the Bogs for now. I’ll be back tomorrow with (I hope) some photos from today’s cycling adventures.
