The day was mostly bright sunshine but slightly brisk in the 60s. When Sneaky hit’s the water, the paddle distance will be less than ¾ mile to the island. The owner of the rv park is a long time fisherman of the area tells me that there is normally fish to catch around the island. So a paddle there could be a catching trip instead of just an exercise trip. That sounds good to me.
Sneaky was unloaded today with no accidents or blood letting. It is now stored on the picnic table awaiting action. Storing Sneaky on the table helps keep fire ants and kids off the boat.
For your information, sewer hoses for Rvs come in left hand or right hand spirals. My first fittings were screw in types that used the spiral that is not normally available at Wal-Mart. So “adjustments” have been being made to hook up the sewers in an air tight manner. Today some fittings were found that can adjust to either spiral. Now there will be a lot less hassles with hooking up to sewers.
This evening a sortie to Packery Channel park and launch ramp made for some pleasant evening time. There were a nice lot of folks there and naturally some visiting happened. There was a blind guy there fishing along with two other folks. He was guided down to the waters edge. Some bait was set next to him and the helpers walked away to do their own fishing. He was able to bait his own hook, cast out and even landed a fish. Then to my real surprise he unhooked the fish himself. He was doing very well. There were others around and one fellow caught a real nice redfish that will be for supper Friday night.
The sun was starting to get lower on the horizon.
That was a clue for me to head back to the Castle for the day.
It was a great finish to a day of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM
