Fishing Trip

It wasn't "just a fishing trip" - it was a whole afternoon "on the farm". We were greeted by these beauties when we first arrived...

This gate gave us a bit of a challenge but after about 10 minutes we managed to get the chain off and drive through.
After arriving at the appropriate pond, the adventuring began. Sliding down hills, catching minnows, finding mushrooms...
...and of course, fishing! We came home with 11 bass and 1 bream.
We got an extra treat this time - the farm now has baby donkeys - they were very skiddish.
To end the trip, Joshua sites a doe in the distant field and stalks it while we clean the fish (I spared you the gut shots).

Yes, I had to get up before the sun this morning, but it was worth it. Joshua already had Saturn focused and all I had to do was look through the viewer - I was amazed. The following photo doesn't do justice to the marvel we viewed this morning. Our view was crystal clear (it is very hard to take pictures through a telescope)!
