The Garden is in - we're going fishing

Just for the day. Mr. Greenjeans and I had a day off together and an invitation to get aboard a friend's fishing boat. Set out early this morning, and by 4:00p.m. were home with our limit on Kokanee Salmon, the largest rainbow trout of my life and a couple of lake trout.

There was fishing excitement and time just to drift and reflect, to do nothing on the lake. Very Good Day.

We cooked the rainbow and a salmon for the family - with leftovers for a salad tomorrow. The rest will go into the smoker to be served to be make smoked salmon and pate.

Fish Pictures to follow (OK, don't look if you don't want to see dead fish...Fish are FOOD):

Fair warning and a screen down:
