~ Weekly Photo Challenge – Fun! ~

My week-long stay at Crescent Creek Cottages began with a family reunion with cousin Duncan Low, and his wonderful companion Carolyn, who joined us for one night and the next morning. It had been forty years since I last met-up with Duncan. We are the same age, and were in grade school together in Wenatchee. Our bond of fun and friendship immediately rekindled!

What could be more fun that catching fish when you are fishing?! The first morning Les, Diana and I were trolling for and catching many Kokanee (silver) trout, when Diana hauled in an eight pound Mackinaw (lake) trout — exciting to say the least!

All three mornings on lovely Odell lake, we were surrounded by old-growth evergreens, fresh cool air, Bald Eagles pip-pipping across the bay, fish jumping on the still surface and fish taking our bait. Day one; 38 Kokanee and 1 Mackinaw (4 1/2 hrs), day 2; 21 Kokanee (3 1/2 hrs), day 3; 24 Kokanee (3 1/2 hrs). It adds up to 84 fish in less than 12 hours fishing!
