At least Fiance fared better than the both of us.
I know when I am in over my head. Actually, I decided to quit before I was in over my head...literally. I gave up fishing in favor of a nice walk through the woods. There were some lovely flowers in bloom.
And, I met the most delightful toad. You might be surprised that toads can be delightful. But they really are gentle creatures full of tales about the woods they inhabit. I could have listened to my new friend quite a long time, but my people decided to take the canoe out to try to catch fish that way.
I was rather nervous boarding the canoe. It wasn't very sturdy for one thing. It was already manned by a crew of spiders for another thing. Not that I am that frightened of spiders. But, my person is quite terrified of them. I, on the other hand, was terrified she might tip the boat with the fuss she was likely to make if one crawled on her in the middle of the pond. Fiance did his best to clear them out.
And, off we went. I enjoyed sitting on the side of the boat....carefully held in place by my person (and fervently hoping a spider wouldn't choose to hop on her at that moment).
We rowed out to the middle of the pond....
And cast our lines into the hazy water. I decided to keep an eye on my person's fishing line, since she was too busy keeping an eye out for stray spiders.
It really was a lovely day to float through the water. We didn't catch any fish on the lake, but the time was still well spent.
And, after such an adventure, I was more than ready to curl up on my person's quilt for a good night's sleep!
