    We had a little bit of free time after church. So, the wife and I are headed out to the lake. We packed up the boat, a couple of fishing poles, and a picnic. The fishing was a bust. We didn’t catch a single thing. However, lunch was fantastic and we had a great time paddling around the lake. During lunch we had a swarm of butterflies around us the whole time which was kind of cool. We found two new coves and spent a couple of hours swimming in one, we saw 13 deer, we saw three beaver, and a bunch of birds. We also found a new place to camp which we intend to come back to. It was a wonderful and uneventful trip.

    Glad you were able to get out. We've had four straight days of damaging afternoon thunderstorms that have stopped all outside activities. Have been able to pick up some free firewood though ;)

    That's all for now. Take care and until next time...be well.

    Even though y'all got skunked on the fish it still sounds like an excellent afternoon.
