Gone Fishin’

I’ve got dead arms today from a Sunday afternoon spent casting out a line with Ellen. We headed towards Ngawi, then cut in towards the sea to a vast pebbled shore and kilometres of sea teeming with fish…

Just not fish that wanted to attach themselves to our rod. They were keen to be caught by the guys next to us but we returned with little more than pebbles stuck to our feet.

Still, with a picnic and books and a Thermos of miso soup this was a great way to spend Sunday.  We took turns fishing and watching the other person fish, reading and relaxing and staring into the middle distance.

Our beautiful scenery.

Ellen’s first fishing task was to untangle the lure from her glove. Yep, fishing masters here folks.

We spotted this beautiful country church on the way home. I couldn’t see it properly to take the photo so was pleased to find I could see right through both sets of windows.

On the way home Ellen showed me a secret spot to pick these great flower/berry things. They look great in our kitchen.

    Beautiful scenery…Ellen looks keen to be in shorts! Was it actually warm? Love the pink berry things.

      It was really warm – just towards the end when the wind picked up it got chilly. I’d say it was about 16 degrees yesterday, which is wrong for winter.
