it has been a hot and hazy august with PLENTY of swimming!!! not too much in the way of early morning activities, but one morning i did catch a fog as it was clearing...
there were dew covered spiderwebs everywhere!!!!!
late in the summer there are bugs of all sizes everywhere... not the fragile early season hatches, but big hardy bugs like grasshoppers, butterflies etc... the spiders flourish as well, it's just you don't see all the webs except on mornings like this..
walking to the river...
there was a heavy fog when i left, 5mins later it really started to clear out - a sign of a hot day coming up!!
i was still able to catch some pretty surreal pictures..
webs on the way back..
there were all kinds of these tunnel webs in our yard..
15 mins later - the fog is really clearing our front!!
and out back - going to be gorgeous out today!! you can be sure we went swimming!!
a couple of days later, i was up earlier and decided to try fishing. when it is really hot, the trout disappear, but by mid august, the evenings are longer and colder... nice sunrise!!
a stunning morning on the river!!!
and breakfast!!!!! the bottom trout is a small brown trout, they don't get big here, at least none i have seen yet. yes, it was a yummy breakfast ;-)) trout season is almost over...
but blackberry season is in full gear - the weather has to be perfect (note a few late raspberries)
here is another load!!!!!! we have about 5 lbs in the freezer so far....
wait until i tell you about these!!!!
hope you are all having a great summer - cheers all!
