Went Fishin'

We went on a little fishing trip for a few days and this was our catch. We went to Shasta and had a very nice and knowledgeable fishing guide take us out on his boat to all the hot spots. The lake was very low, but the fish were still there. There have been several fires in the area caused by lightning strikes so there was a lot of smoke still hanging around. You couldn't even see Mt. Shasta through all the smoke. Michael will be writing more about this on his fishing blog. He learned a lot of fishing tips from our guide, Ben. Some he'll share and some he will keep to himself.

We went from there to my Dad's in Shady Cove, Oregon where we all went on a rafting trip down the Rogue River. What a fun filled 3 days!

We came back to gardens full of tomatoes and basil. We have been busy making sauce and pesto!

Hi Ferne,

Thanks for the lovely comment you have left on the cutwork. You know, I haven't even thought of running ribbon through the cutwork - what an excellent idea. I will give it a try and see how it looks.
