~ A Little Fishin Therapy and A Lunch Date~

Last week Carl went for his bi-monthly blood test and then we had a date for lunch at one of my most favorite spots. But, I'm getting ahead of myself. After the lab he had a therapy session.....a little fishing and mother nature provided........ a beautiful sunny day, peaceful setting, the anticipation of a catch, plus....ducky entertainment, lots of birds singing and chattering, a red headed woodpecker tapping away, turtles swimming by and sunning themselves on nearby rocks and if your lucky you might even spot a sea lion......
Hi honey.......time for lunch. Nothing fancy, but isn't this just a blissful spot. Carl had lots of bites and I know, it sounds like a fish story, but a big one did get away. Guess who had the catch of the day? That's right, me. Just a little fellow...to small to keep...but so much fun to bring in.
Walking up the levee you never know what you'll see. I think this is some sort of a thistle, kind of pretty...but awfully prickly......
And I don't think I want to know what lives in there....hopefully just a furry critter.

Well, time to head home.....same time..same place..next week. It's a date!

Find your spot and enjoy.......Linda

Hi Linda!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
I'm always looking forward to the next ornie issue - usually right after the current one hits my mailbox!
I love the little fork chandie - my middle son proceded to tell me how easy it would be to make (he can't stand not to know how to do anything so he had to study it!) I told him I was sure it wouldn't be hard, but it was so much easier to let Margo make it! LOL
Hope you had a great stitch together. We had to move ours to tonight so I'll have to do all my packing tomorrow!

Hi Linda,
That looks quite relaxing there and most of all quiet (how nice!).

I don't think I want to know what's living in that hole either, good just to walk away, isn't it? ;)

Happy day!

Linda this was a nice relaxing spot that you chose for us today! My hubby loves fishing but I love to just sit and watch the sky..A nice comfortable
quiet when I go fishing with the man.
Lots of different sounds on the water...and of course munching on the packed lunch a favorite pastime too for a non fisher..woman!
