Pepere really wanted to take us fishing on this trip.
It was set in the plans, but the lake we were hoping for
wasn't yet opened for the season.
Thanks to God, Gra and Pepere, Groupon, and Meam's new YES gig,
we enjoyed the perfect replacement plan...
FISHIN' WITH GUS! :)
But wait a minute, let me back up a sec., lest I forget
He was love-a-licious, and older than dirt,
just relaxing by the water at the dock.
His collar was packed with tags; ID, phone numbers,
licenses, proof of vaccines, and even one that read:
"please don't take me from the dock".
One tag revealed his name:
You were smitten!
Captain Gus didn't think you would be able to handle
casting and reeling his type of fishing rods at five years old.
So, he pretty much declared that you would watch the
bobbers from the rods in the holders, and reel any fish caught there.
But I know you, (you say that all the time, "you know me...")
you'd rather cast and reel all day than catch one single fish.
I had your back, and with a little instruction you were well on your way.
Captain Smaptain. ;)
Gra was super cute (and helpful) keeping you on the boat! :)
Captain Gus mentioned more than once how surprised he was
that you could handle the fishing rod so well.
He commented on your casting and helped instruct us all
with tips and pointers.
It was great!
He asked me a couple times,
"How old is he?"
mentioning again how good you were.
He said you will be a great fisherman,
and I got the feeling Captain Gus would know. :)
You still wouldn't touch your own fish, though.
Gra claimed to be most interested in the beautiful houses on the banks,
but we're pretty sure she fell a little bit in love with fishing that day.
She looked happier than ever with fish on her line.
Pepere was quiet and diligent.
You liked fishing next to and just hanging out with him.
I dreamed of all the fishing I will get to do in the future with him.
Finally, my fishing dreams come true. :)
And of course, I enjoyed fishing myself, too.
It was an awesome day!
