I love this photo of Ben and Joshua. Ben is such an attentive Father and he and Josh have a great relationship.
We arrived at the camp about 3:00 pm (one hour before official check in time.) Once we got the cars unloaded and some sense of order to our clothes and other items we then decided, that even though the weather was a little misty and cool, we would get our fishing licenses at the lodge and head out fishing.
This is a view of the protected harbor at Red Wing Lodge. There is a narrow entry way between the dock and a pile of barrier rocks so you have to be really careful coming in. You also have to raise the prop a bit as the harbor is very shallow and the rocks are very close to the entrance and come out into the channel a little bit.
We ran up to a place where I’ve caught some Northern Pike before and trolled around for a couple of hours until the crew got hungry and bored. Fearing a mutiny on the first day I acquiesced and we headed back to the camp.
After a hearty meal at a local restaurant we settled in for the evening. The light was still not conducive for pictures but I walked down to the dock just to listen to the waves coming in and to feel the fresh cool lake breeze. I notice this lady at the end of the dock looking out at the water and thought it would make a interesting image.
I never saw her again the entire week and have no idea what was going on with her but she was still there when I finally decided to go in. While there I shot some ducks. They were constantly at the beach and having an ongoing territorial battle with the gulls. I’ll have more on that later.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your week. I have one more day of vacation then back to work tomorrow. Be careful
