I chuckle as I cast my line out thinking how many parents take their children fishing, the most patient past time, for the most impatient at heart.
Relaxing and stressful all in the same hand, unless of course you’re fishing upstream in Alaska during salmon season, haha!
I hit the local ‘pay here to fish’ pond, simply to relax & a decent place to watch the sun melt beyond the trees in front of me. I love nothing more than summer country nights!
As we sat on the couch watching TV, Hannah said we should camp out inside, stay up late and read books some time. I agreed and then she said we should do it tonight, because I had my tent with me. So we got the tent and actually set it up in the middle of her living room. It took up the entire living room and was a little difficult to set up. Then we filled it with blankets and pillows and started reading this old, badly written murder mystery book to each other. We had planned to stay up late and read all sorts of books, but we just ended up falling asleep.
I woke up this morning, after a night of rain, to this beautiful sunrise. I had a lot of fun camping and birding this weekend. I’ll definitely be coming back next May. I got up, listened to the Orioles, Yellow Warblers, and Blackbirds calling and started packing up so I could make the long drive back home. It was a lot of fun and I’ll miss the birds, but I’m ready to be back home in Indy.
Another day of birding and exploring the parks along Lake Erie. It’s beautiful up here and the birds are amazing. I got my first lifer of the trip, which was also a rarity for Ohio. That was White-faced Ibis. I talked to some more neat people, saw a lot of good birds, walked along this beautiful beach and at the end of the day I picked up a few more species, which got me to 100 species total for the trip.
