Once in a while one needs to take a step back from the busy-ness of life to relax and rejuvenate. This is not so easy to do when one has a farm full of lively animals who seem to need constant attention and tending. But last Sunday, Jeff and I made a break for it and headed over to a county park.

We were amazed to find a beautiful section of the Eau Claire River running between sandstone bluffs and piney woods.

We had glorious weather.

Check out the doggie going for a boat ride!

We caught enough bluegills for a yummy dinner.

Can't wait to go again - but I still won't touch a worm... or a fish!

That sounds like a challange. We had a great day to fish the Kinnikinnic River. But no fish in the nets. Had one on and some lookers but nothing netted. Alas the weather was too nice, but it was still great to be standing in the river.

I'm glad you finally got a chance to relax and enjoy yourselves. There's nothing quite like a river on a hot day is there?

Looks idyllic! How much fun.
Please note new blog address:

Old blog was too limited.

Take care!
