Frost(!), Fishing and Fotos

October 3, 2009

Happy October!  It has arrived with a bang here–frosts pretty much every night.  The fall colors are beautiful, however, and I’m trying to spend some quality time outside before it gets cold and ugly. 

Steve and I went fishing Wed. afternoon.  We had a ball!  We must have released 30+, 15-16″ walleye in about an hour!  They all looked like this:

It was a bit chilly but nothing I couldn’t handle.  We really did have a blast.  I’m not too thrilled with my footwear option–not a choice, a necessity:

Steve and I celebrated our 15th anniversary on Thursday!  Happy Anniversary, Buddy!

Let’s do some of Sandi’s photos.  I have a bunch of others yet–some still trapped on my now-defunct older camera.  I’ve got some of moose camp, feeding the eagles (not suitable for all audiences), and other random subjects on my new-and-getting-friendlier camera.  For this entry, though, we’ll look at Sandi’s.  She had a lot of nice ones; these are some of my favorites:
