Rock Fishing...Kinda Sorta

If You Can't Go To The Lake....

Go fishin' in your driveway!

Armed with the knowledge that our weather was soon going to be changing, the kids decided to make the most of what sun they had left and have a good ol' time outside.

Lindsay had fishing on her mind, so Pa helped her get the rod and reel out, and she set out to do some serious fishing.
Cat Fish Aren't Biting

She tried cat fishing, but the catfish weren't biting.

So she decided to try rock fishing.
Casting Out
She cast out as far as she could. There were some pretty impressive casts.
What A Cast!
It looked like she might have caught a big one at one point. But, alas, it was the one that got away.

Ah well. No fish for dinner, rock or otherwise, but both our children had a fine time in the sun before we headed into town where they both scored some great books for their weeks reading.

Hopefully the weather will clear, and the wind will die down a bit before the end of the weekend.

Hope you all are having a fantastic Fun Friday!

Note: As always, you may click on photos for full size versions ;)

SO FUNNY!!! I was cracking up the entire time I read your post. I've actually had fish called "rockfish" and it's wonderful...actually works quite well for making ceviche! ;>

LOL Kimmi! One thing these two are not lacking in is imagination. They rather remind me of you in that aspect ;-)

Can you imagine how excited Nathan would've been if there was actually a fish on the end of that line??

Thanks, Marcia :) I think I had as much fun snapping photos as the kids did with their "fishing" adventure! LOL
Now I just need to pick up some blank cd's and see if I can figure out how to burn all these memories for safe keeping!
