Jerry and I went fishing today at Patagonia Lake State Park. What a beautiful place! It is our favorite fishing spot. It gets to be quite noisy and congested on the weekends and holidays but early on a Thursday morning, it was very peaceful and lovely. :)
We only caught two bluegill but it was still worth the drive of a little over an hour just to get away. I hate to admit it but I had never cleaned a fish before. When we got home, I found a wonderful YouTube video on how to clean and fillet small panfish here. I highly recommend checking it out! We had a few worms left over and some very happy chickens when we got home!
In addition to the peace and quiet and fishing, there were ducks looking for a bite to eat amongst the reeds.
A VERY cheeky squirrel with a broken tail. Jerry couldn't resist the little guy and gave him a piece of bread.
And it wouldn't be a proper fishing spot without the ever popular Bobber Berry Tree! We counted at least six. ;-)
I'm happy to report that we did NOT add to the decorations, at least this time!
