Took advantage of having Friday off and hit the links. There's nothing like whacking a little white ball around ridiculously manicured turf, trying to avoid strategically placed little sandy beaches and thick horticulture lining the green carpet, with a couple of good friends.
Or is there?
Yes, there is something better...........
After spending the 4th with friends and family, I took off with a couple of friends to a distant watery, wooded paradise for a few days to fish. Who needs fireworks anyway? Take a look at this place:
And here's one of the denizens of this wonderful, far off slice of heaven:
This brown trout was one of many other salmonoids we caught during this outing. In addition to the browns, there were some very acrobatic rainbows and a few brook trout with colors that only nature can paint with her delicate, rainbow covered palette.
And then today, it was back to reality and even a meeting tonight in good old Jersey City.
When is the next trip? Are we there yet?
