First Fish of the Season and out of Rhythm!
Over the last few weeks my life has been rather full. On Saturday, my husband Murray and I finally had an afternoon alone, the result was we went fishing. After the long cold spring, it was refreshing to have a warm sunny day in Saskatchewan with no wind. The video I am posting makes me laugh, I sound goofy, but I am going to share the adventure anyway.
After Murray caught the first fish of the season, he caught one more, then the motor on our boat decided not start. Our next option was we had to row back to the fishing dock. I have never paddled/rowed the boat with my husband, and we were completely out of rhythm with each other. He told me he was totally embarrassed of how he paddled one way and I another, and that I seemed to be totally oblivious to it all. I was.
Well, all that work for two small fish. When we arrived at the dock we ended up giving our catch away to a elderly lady who was happy to receive the gift. I did enjoy the beauty and peace that surrounded us, even if I couldn't row a boat.
How can you be married for 27 years, and not be in rhythm with your partner? I believe we need to start rowing our boat together more! I am serious.
If you have a fishing tale to tell I would love to hear it!
