P1080644This guy/gal was sitting on top of our pole to welcome us back. Thought he was going to invited us to a fish dinner but he took it back to the nest to share it with his/her family.

Jim was so looking forward to doing a whole lot of fishing. But the rains came down. And boy did they come down. We had rain every day last week and we found out that our skylight over the tub leaks. So as soon as we see sunshine and Jim isn’t out on the lake, he’ll have to get that fixed. So far the toilet is just fine.

We did have one beautiful sunset.

We had sunshine on Monday so Jim headed for the lake at 5:00 a.m. (Why can’t I get him to get up early when I want to get on the road?) Caught a bunch of little walleyes but nothing big enough for him to keep. He’s out there trying again today.

Eight keepers.

On Tuesday our son, Todd, and his beautiful bride, Michaela, celebrated their second wedding anniversary. On Sunday they took a drive up Beartooth Highway which is one of the most beautiful drives in the United States.

Todd and Michaela

Since we are settled for the next two months and I won’t be doing much, I may not be posting very often. I’ll be keeping up through all your blogs and if anything exciting happens here, I’ll do a post.

  17. Look at the size of the fish that Osprey caught. I have a video of an Osprey catching a huge fish--I posted it once because it so amazed me. It's on my side bar.

    Looks from the pile of fish that Jim did pretty good. Glad the rain stopped so he can go, again. Rich and I drove the Beartooth a number of times. Never got tired of it.

    How are you enjoying the trailer? I didn't realize it had a slide. Mine doesn't, but it looks to be about the same size You are so lucky that Jim is so handy. My fix would be a bucket. LOL

    Enjoy sitting still for a while. Love to S&S.
