When the OFM headed for bed last night he said he was glad nothing was going to happen today so he could get started on the preliminary sketch for the next painting. He is ready to have some fun smearing colors on some paper.

The first thing this morning was a visit from the campground owner to tell us about the big town news. That took a good while. It was interesting news.

Then the owner and another nice fellow took to adding seal coat to one of the campsites. Boy that was a tedious job. But they worked diligently at it and got a good job finished.

Then during the day we had three more long visits by friends. Also we did two fishing trips to the harbor. For our efforts the first trip yielded three 14“ trout that had to be chunked back in due to being 1“ too short to be legal.

Then as the sun was headed below the horizon we got a chance to photograph a new to us model of bird.  This bird was REAL good at spearing the small fish running around the rocks. At on point we counted four fish in five tries. That is really good spearing compared to most of the birds we see.

As you can see it was a very busy day. But overall we were fairly successful at trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Big town news? Go ahead you can tell us... we won't tell anyone! :-)

  2. Just wondering, do you ever eat the fish you catch or is it just a hobby. Beautiful Heron picture.

  3. Maybe you need a shorter tape measure. . .

  4. Nothing better than townspeople gossiping, they more often than not have the goods down pat.

  5. Amazing how some days just evolve that way, sure sounds like you had some fun though and caught some fishes.

  6. Looks like a great day to me.

  7. The best laid plans....
