gone fishing

A first experience for the two little misses, this was a day to remember from our seashore holiday.  Some very special friends took us out on their boat for a few hours of fun on the river.

After 30 seconds of hooking the bait onto the line, miss e exclaimed:

 "It takes a long time to catch a fish!" !

A little more time
Lots of bites and nibbles
A lot of giggles
A little more patience

A lot of sighs as the line came out with no bait, and no fish attached...

But lots of excitement when a fish finally was caught!!!!

It was admired and gracefully tossed back into it's shimmering home.

New things to learn and feel...
 Colours and sounds to experience...
I love the freckle on this little hand...
 Thoughts and emotions are expressed...
Patience is practised...

And has paid off...

An experience we all want to repeat again and again, and again. 
Thank you, b & r. X


  1. My favorite time is fishing, I used to live in Florida, and fished every chance I could. Moved to Maine the coast is dangerous rocks and there is not fish like in Florida. Loved your post. yvonne

  2. I want to come fishing too! Looks fab. So happy to be following your blog now.

  3. Children love it though, don't they!? I always thought they would find it boring, but they seem to like the mediative aspect of it as much as we do.

    I loved your comment on my post just now. That woman is a saint! It made me realise how easy it is to really make another person feel so good. Why don't we all do it more often?? x

  4. Good point, Maxabella. I will make a concerted effort to do actually do it more often. X

  5. Great pictures on sport fishing, a lesson in pictures. A greeting.


little rays of sunshine... thank you for your kind words. X
