SPRING FISHING VACATION


We had a very good fishing vacation
at Cabwaylingo State Forest in
Wayne County, WV.
John caught 60 trout.
We ate trout, gave trout away,
and brought trout home.
I didn't fish as much as John did.
I mostly enjoyed the cabin...
reading, napping, walking,
and enjoying nature.
It was truly relaxing for me.
The weather was the way I like it...
not hot and not too cold.
I loved the fireplace and
I was so thankful that the weather
was cool enough for it.

This is our cabin.


Chopping firewood.


My fire.


Missy all snug in her blankie.


At night, we played dominoes on the table.


This is the cabin road where Missy and I walked.
See her in the lower right corner?
I had to keep a leash on her.
I just love the dense forest,
but was a little wary because we were
told that there had been coyotes sited in the forest.
I just prayed while I walked.


Twelve Pole Creek  is on one side of the road.


Lots and lots of ferns along the road.


May Apple.


Star Flower or Fire on the Mountain?


Wild Rose Bush.


?


Don't know what this tree is called...
but they have very large leaves and
very large white blooms.


These blooms were on the road...
I don't know which tree they came from,
but I thought they were very pretty.


One day we drove up to the top of the
mountain where one of the campgrounds is.
Look who's swinging.


On the way up the mountain, I saw this...


I've seen these before and always wondered just
what they are.....so we stopped on the way
back down the mountain and I read the 
poster on the tree....interesting.
Click and you can read it also.


Before I close this post, I must show off a day's catch.


Doesn't he look proud?
I did catch a few of those that day.

That's it for our spring fishing vacation pictures.
I really like those rustic vacations and will
look forward to the next one.

Welcome back...what a wonderful place to vacation. It would be hard to come home. The trout has my mouth watering. :) And I could stay in those woods all day...every thing is so green.

Looks and sounds like you had a great time! Next time I want to go with you.
After the day I'm having, I NEED a relaxing vacation.

That's the kind of stuff I like to do when I vacation. Not fishing so much, but walking the trails and exploring. Glad you had a good time.

Fishing is one sport that can be enjoyed in many different ways. For example, you could relax under the shade of an umbrella and wait for a fish to take your bait, or you could venture out into the blue waters and enjoy the thrill of deep sea fishing.
