TROUT FISHING DAYS

Last week, we had several good
trout fishing days.
John had his alarm set for 3:00 a.m.
He wanted to get there early
to get the best fishing spot.
The mornings were cold.
I dressed in layers...
including long johns.
We arrived at the lake before dawn.
Below is a shot of the sky as it dawns.
On one morning it sprinkled a little.
I used an umbrella...hubby a poncho.
I spotted a rainbow.
While the mornings were cold...
it warmed up nicely as the sun came out...
I loved that sun.
But, I did get a little sun burned.
I had a nice camp chair...
and even brought a book to read
when the fish weren't biting.
The ducks and geese entertained me.
I took a lot of pictures...some are posted below.
Aren't the ducks just beautiful!

The Canadian geese really put on a show....
splashing and rolling over in the water.


 Hope you enjoyed my pictures.

John has the fishing gear all loaded in the truck...
ready to head out again in the morning again.

Hey Sister!!

I jumped over from Denise at Samaritan Women and so glad I did. Love your photos and your blog! The sunrise and rainbow pics were simply beautiful and I so enjoyed seeing the geese. We don't see to many geese in AZ. I miss seeing them as the seasons change.

I'm following along with you and hope you'll stop by my place for a visit sometime!!

Sweet Blessings!
Jackie
