Robin’s Journal: Enjoying the Water

I spend weekdays rushing around to get everything done so that when the weekend finally gets here we can spend our time in the boat. One evening last week we went for a ride on West Lake in Talmadge. Saturday took us back to West Lake, Sunday was spent swimming and fishing on Upper Sysladobsis in Lakeville Plantation and on Monday we took the boat to Spednic Lake in Vanceboro. We did a little fishing Sunday. Monday afternoon was great – bass after bass caught and released. A few weren’t legal but even the bigger fish were released for someone else to enjoy.

We enjoyed watching a family of common Merganser ducks. I think they were saying grace before supper. (In reality, they were preening after a swim.)
