And because it has been so long since I have fished, I am getting very old, and feeling it.

There is still some joy in memory....teaching my young son how to fish.  A photo taken by my then wife from our lakeside cottage balcony.

Of course I fished there a lot myself.  Here the boat is anchored in the same spot as in the photo above, about 60 feet off my dock where the shallowness ends with an abrupt drop to deeper water.  The side of the drop is covered with weeds that the bass liked to hang out in, and I was always able to catch enough for a pan-fried meal.

800

This is an average size bass that I was able to catch there.  You'll notice I'm not holding it up towards the camera to make it look bigger.  What I do notice is that I was a lot bigger around the waist back then than I am now - Chinese food is healthier.

800

Now, since I was never a "catch and release" fisherman, but a 'catch and eat' one, the fish had to be filleted, with my son's friend who was his guest that weekend watching.  My canoe is there.  We also had a kayak and two snowmobiles.

800

All that relaxing was pretty exhausting, so what else would I be doing?

800

I do miss that place.

I really like the top photo.  It's the kind of picture I would not get tired of looking at.  The second one could be a prize-winner at a LensCulture contest because I think it's the type of thing that would please those judges, because my photos sure don't.

The top image would make an excellent stained glass window or sun-catcher. I consider it easily publishable!

Good evening from Norfolk Island 1,800 kms out in the Pacific Ocean from Australia.

A very unique Island where convicts were sent from England. Many of the buildings remain today and it is fascinating to see history come alive after been taught it in school..

Norfolk Island pines cover much of the island. 2,000 people live here.

Looks like a nice quiet place for a rest - bet there's no traffic jams there.  So this is where that Norfolk Pine Christmas tree you posted photos of recently comes from.

The only traffic jams here are caused by cattle and chooks wandering all over the road..

All livestock have right of way and the max speed limit here is 50ks all over the island..

No one would die of a heart attack, ulcer or stress here...and they even have Vegemite..😁

Yes many coastal towns in Australia have Norfolk pines growing and this is where they originally came from..

Perhaps it was ''white collar'' crime that your ancestors were involved in, they never get jail time or sent to penal colonies.

Just trying to be helpful, shona.

Just got through weeks of dreary overcast cold rainy weather and for the last couple of days the sun has finally found us.  A couple of weeks ago I developed pneumonia but it didn't last long, just morphed into a bad cold that I can't get rid of but now that there's some sun I can get out and maybe the cold will pass.
