First of all, I have to make a correction on yesterday’s blog entry. There is a water tap near my campsite, and there are clean ‘ flush toilets ‘ with running water and electrical outlets in the ‘ reserved ‘ sections of the campsite that are close to my campsite and I have access to them. So that means that I should pay more for such luxury.
I slept in until 6:30 am and went for breakfast in town at a small coffee shop. The food was very good but the scenery was beautiful and relaxing.
After breakfast, I picked up a fishing license and some recommended fishing flies before returning to camp and attending the camp nondenominational church service. The topic for the service was Father’s Day. I hope everyone had a wonderful day.
The weather looked like there were thunderstorms in the area, so after waiting for a while, I went for a hike. The skies changed constantly all afternoon and I heard thunder but I didn’t experience any storms. I hiked for a few hours before fishing on a small river about 1/2 a mile from the campsite. I didn’t have much luck fishing. All I caught was a 13 cm ( 5 inch – it sounds better in metric ) minnow and one that got away ( honest…OK maybe it was just my imagination and I just hooked a rock or branch ), but I had fun trying.
When I finally gave up, I hiked back to camp, only to find that some high winds during the afternoon had blown yellow pine dust all over everything. I cleaned my motorcycle and tent, as best I could before going to town for a nice supper. By the time I got back to camp, it was almost dark and getting quite cool, so I called it an early night.
