Ellen finally came home on Tuesday and was all fired up to go knitting after her extended vacation, but when my brother called yesterday and asked if I wanted to go out on the bay with him, I simply had to leave the knitting and go.
What a perfect day! The ocean was flat calm. It was sunny and 26 degrees C. And, to add a pleasant surprise, my rubber boots don't pinch my legs anymore! We went out around Kelly's Island. That's the first time I'd seen what was behind the Island! Then, we went down along Conception Bay as far as Topsail Beach, where there were dozens of people playing on the beach and in the ocean. We trolled for sea trout for a while, but no luck on that front.
Anyway, the pictures tell the story. Back to knitting next post!
