On the move these days and spending more time with people, then getting virtual. Just back from a superduper fisheries conference in Ottawa though. Once again, thankful for living in tbay....i mean, that part of the country is so thick with culture and history, tons of bikes, and tons of good beer, and some really friendly folks; but also has a few too many people and a few too many cars and a whole lot of pavement.

Nance wasn't kidding when she said she was gonna get serious and put up a few rows of cedar shakes on the shed roof. Awsomeness.

Sun, sun and more sun. Hot week in the Bay. No waves to be had, other than those coming from the northwest and slammin under the boat as we worked on an inland lake this week. Threw down on some rock with Andrew and Nance on wednesday, otherwise keeping cool with some swims. Off to the nations capital tomorrow. out.

Andrew placing some pro.

Let's just say that the stupidity continued all through the weekend and is still going on out there. Unfortunately i'm not talking about a local local patch. Of course the berries are everywhere, not just at our "secret spot" and yee shall find. Devoted the better part of the weekend to stalking the freezer with fresh picked blueberries. I'm no expert, but i reckon you'd call this a bumper crop. The hero shot showing our total haul is still to come, but right now we are sitting pretty at well over 20 litres. Leaving the secret spot on sunday afternoon was hard and almost felt wrong; like turning your back on good waves or a river full of fresh chrome, but alas we had to call er quits, dog had had his fill of blueberries and was calling for real dog food and the sun was beating down and causing the bugs to swarm en mass. So much goodness.

Harvesting the bounty of the woods. After spending a relaxing weekender out in the Lake of the Woods area an seeing that the blueberries were coming along nicely, Nance and i were nearly giddy with anticipation of what our.."secret spot" might have in store for us this year. Jetted out after dinner last night and to our delight, scored a solid 6 litres in just under 2 hours. Painless picking and a reckless display of gorging on blue fruit. Would have cooked it back out tonight, but thunder showers and a dinner invite left those juicy jumbos to grow another day. 20 litres should provide Nance and i with enough blues to sprinkle a couple of spoonfulls on our cereal every morning for a year....shweet!

Another fine GL's specimen.
Gearing for fall steel and an onslaught of salmonids.
