Mother Nature just didn’t want us to catch fish yesterday I guess. Early in the AM the Tricos and Ants were flitting about, and just when it seemed like something was going to happen the wind came up and blew everyone back into the trees. Then the bright sun came out, and not too much went on through the day, let alone the evening. Today we’re looking at a bit more calm in the wind department, and definitely more clouds, with some rain perhaps! One can definitely dream! The cool temps this morning (low 50s) will push the Trikes back a bit in the morning, which is good for all of those who wanted to sleep in a bit!
