Thankfully it is finally Friday, and, don’t you wish you had gone fishin’ on this beautiful day, just like this guy I saw at Council Point Park yesterday?
This fisherman had high hopes of catching dinner … he had cast his line into the water, plus, you’ll note, he even had a spare pole and line, which would be helpful having both hands free, just in case he snagged a big old fish.
Or a muskrat.
Or, even an old shoe.
I left earlier than usual so I could look for him today and hear any fish tales he might want to tell me, that I could in turn share on this blog. But, he wasn’t stationed at his post on the cement precipice, and, in fact was nowhere to be found. So, my query of how many fish he caught and how many got away, will now have to wait until next time I see him. I want to know if I should keep my eyes peeled for big fish leaping out of the Creek water.
Most of us were lucky enough to enjoy a long weekend over Memorial Day. We crammed in many activities in that three-day period, working around the anticipated rain, and the eventual stormy weather. And then, all too soon, Tuesday was here and we trudged back to work. Then, it seems we paid the price for that extra day off as we sought to cram five days’ work into four days. That was my week anyway.
I think we need another three-day holiday by now. Besides, I was just getting used to what day it was, since I was a “day off” all week – you too?
I love our state’s “Pure Michigan” commercials, and the “Gone Fishin’” commercial is one of my favorites. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRkL700sOWE
Don’t you wish you could just hang a sign up whenever you felt like vacating the premises, whether it is work or home – just to get out of Dodge and do something fun, like fishing?
It was another cool and sunny day at the Park, a flawless blue sky overhead and lots of walkers who, like me, got an early start at the Park. Something new was added to the mix as a skateboarder was on the perimeter path. That was a first, and I waited to see the reaction by the geese to this “movin’ man” but, not a goose was to be found.
I think the critters are hiding behind the wild rhubarb which grows all along the perimeter path. The leaves are huge, some are as big as my head. You sometimes think your eyes are playing a trick on you, when you see a squirrel or rabbit dart from the path into nowhere, only to see a telltale tail peeking out from behind the oversized leaves.
The weekend has arrived, and, so also are those pesky weekend tasks that rob us of “me time” … get them done early, then maybe you, too, can head off to a favorite fishing hole, just like this guy did.
