Another Week is Gone

Hard to believe that we've been here for seven whole weeks, and as I sit an update this, week 8 has already begun.  It's only a little after 9:00 am and most of the campers who are heading out today are already gone.   We understand that for the next two weeks 5 of the 12 cabins will be taken by the same family.  Guess they come here every year for two weeks, and have been doing it for several years.

From Tuesday through Friday the weather made the fishing a little bit difficult because of the strong winds.  But the 90 degree days were not to bad.  Even with what they called high humidity - it was nothing like Florida 90's!

On Tuesday evening Rich went out alone to fish.  Just didn't seem to be enough of a breeze for me.......As it turned out the weather was perfect for drifting and Rich caught 10 fish and brought back 7 on the stringer!  Weather kept us both in on Thursday and despite the heavy winds we found a couple of time during the day on Friday.

It was very very choppy on Friday evening as we drifted behind Raspberry Island.  We knew that the owners of the Island often stayed there but today was the first we saw them with their two boats at the dock and chopping wood for a campfire.   We made it back to dock just as it was starting to sprinkle.  Dean and Sherry and Bill stopped by and chatted for a while....until the rain sent everyone inside.  But the Moon was absolutely beautiful over the water.

Depending on the weather this weekend we hope to get in one good day of fishing, and make a trip into Clayton to the Antique Boat Museum and the Antique Boat Show.
