Fishing And A Rainbow

 I told Devin I would bring him into Park Rapids to fish. I brought along a book and lawn chair and he got busy. First gathering snails and clams to use for bait. I couldn't watch. It must of worked....
He caught a northern and the only reason I know it's it a northern is because Devin told me. My responds is always "oh you caught a fish. In other words, they all look like fish to me.
While Devin was fishing I was reading but distracted by a couple loud gulls.

Then came the bass, which I was told was what he was trying to catch in the first place.
We ended the day at home with a thunderstorm and a rainbow.

A Boat Ride

I am still struggling with my depression and grief so I disappeared for awhile. I tend to get the teenage mood of "whatever" when I hit a new low. However, yesterday I needed to get out of the house. So I threw a fit to get Brian and Devin to cooperate.
We have lived here 2 years and I had yet to go out on a boat ride with them. So... That's what we did.

We came across several Loons. We hear them at night if the windows are open.

I believe this is a heron.

These are my favorite. I have been seeing these two on the way home (in the car) but they always run off before I can get a photo. We were going slow in the boat  so they didn't run off. The fawn still has it's spots.

I took this of Devin and told him I was going to name it Mad Dog Devin

He was mad because when we were done he wanted to go to a different lake to fish. I told him I would take him today. 

I will leave you with a few pictures of the lake.
