Was met by my cousins and it is just so great to see them all. They have a super house on a lake and the following morning I was out fishing on the canoe with my cousin's son for over 3 hours. I cannot begin to describe the peace and atmosphere out on the lake fishing. Not a human sound-just the natural sounds of nature.............bull frogs,birds of all kinds and silence! We caught a few fish....bass, pumpkin seed (?) and something else. Not big enough to keep though 3 or 4 I caught must have been just under the required length. Then my cousin caught a lovely sized Bass - around a kilo to a kilo and a half. We kept it alive but then let it go.
Yesterday we started our road trip down from Michigan to S.Carolina. A long drive down near Asheville, NC......................but I will carry this on tonight cos right now my cousin is waiting for me to change so we can go out for a walk!

Haven't been blogging much lately. Getting organised for departing to the US tomorrow morning.
Summer and the heat has set in well and good! The usual summer activity of crazy boat and jetbike riders on the water. The highlight moments this past week were getting out on the boat and enjoying it (pics above taken on boat last Sunday) and going down for an early evening swim each day.................water absolute heaven!
Will try and keep blog going while away - all depends on access of a computer with internet.

The stuff these guys are doing are just mind boggling!
I can laugh at 'wife humour' too!
"When a man steals your wife,
there is no better revenge than to let him keep her. "
"By all means marry.
If you get a good wife, you'll be happy.
If you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher."
Dumas : The great question... which I have not been able to answer... is, "What does a woman want?"
Sigmund Freud: "I had some words with my wife,
and she had some paragraphs with me."

Further to my searching for cheap but functional cameras that can get wet without breaking the bank...........I came across this one which I think I am going to get. Nothing fancy but think it will do the job. Go onto http://www.goprocamera.com/ to see their stuff. If I get it will ofcourse give a full run down of it.

Thanks 'Horsey' for this great link. A woman to really admire and even more so to see someone still practicing the sport at her age. I don't feel so old after all! Her name is Ava Hollaman and you should read her history on her site - http://www.boardlady.com/index.htm . Very interesting.
Both 'Puffy' and 'Horsey' have sent me instructions how to creat links to sites without having to write out the whole address but they just don't work for me. Don't know what I am doing wrong! Any easier way?? Stupid question ofcourse.
