A-FISHING WE WILL GO

What a lovely day to go fishing!  Beautiful sunshine, no wind, and a lake just waiting for fishermen!  On Saturday, we decided on Heritage Lake, where we had been before.  We first checked the Church of Christ Camp thinking there may be campers out there, but the gates were locked.  Good thing there was no one there, as the horse flies were the biggest we have ever seen, and they were everywhere by the millions going down that road to the camp gate.  We got out of there as quickly as we could!  There were SOME horse flies at the boat launch just before the Camp, but they were tolerable.    What a surprise to see our next door neighbours camped there – the women were sitting under their awning visiting and enjoying their favorite drink, while the men were out in the dinghy!  Small world…
