Dull Day


Adventure Location: Decatur, Al.

Adventure Date: 9/08/2021

The morning was nice but the foot was not totally well. We decided to give the foot a little work out just to keep it flexible. We set out with no distance goal in mind and stayed on the paved surfaces. At about an eighth of a mile the foot started aching more so we cut back around part of the campground at a much slower pace. But it was a no go on a full length walk.

Back at the Castle while sitting to rest the foot, we noticed the fishing rod up on the wall. Hmmm we have not done any casting in a very long time. So we assembled the rod to the reel and tied on a small weight. Down at the fishing bridge the OFM took careful aim a a reflection a nice distance away and missed it by about 500 feet. Yep he needs the practice.

His casting ability got better fast and about thirty minutes of practice had him hitting targets like a real fisherman does. We had about thirty minutes of practice and it was nice to be outside this morning.

And that was the exciting part of a day of trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. I miss your fish on the dock "before release" pictures, maybe we will get to see some new ones soon!

  2. Those specs were asking about you last time I was at the coast.
