When we finally got back to the camp from Boy Bay there was still a lot of daylight left. Knowing the weather forecast for the next day was not for a particularly nice day, we decided to head out for a boat ride with the whole crew.
The water was fairly calm and so we could cruise around the area at full throttle. The temperature was a little cool but just feeling the wind on your face and the gentle bounce of the boat, splashing waves and the occasional loon calling were just wonderful.
I’m not sure what Joshua thought of the whole experience. His little life jacket was pretty restraining so he wasn’t able to move much. He made quite the little boater with his fishing hat and shades. Of course as long as a guy has his Binky it’s all good.
Back at the dock we unloaded the live well from our day’s catch. It made a pretty impressive string of fish. Although the locals and many seasoned fishermen didn’t think much of our catch. I guess most “in-the-know” anglers throw back the unworthy Northern Pike but I like the taste and they are a fun fish to catch.
Securely ensconced in his Baby Einstein play area, Josh was once again free to explore all the wonders the learning center has to offer. He would spend hours playing with each attachment and then show a good deal of satisfaction in his ability to manipulate the various objects.
After dinner I walked down to the dock to think about years gone by and just take it all in. I noticed this duck walking up and down the dock while her mates were on the beach. Out of frame but still on the rocks were the gulls. It was like the duck was making sure the gulls knew their place and not try to encroach on the prized sandy beach.
Thanks for stopping by. The adventure continues. Later in the week I will have some really nice sunsets and lake scenes. Enjoy your day and be careful.
