I wish every day could be spent like this; hanging out in my favorite places with my favorite person.
Lindsay and I had afternoon plans to see a wedding done by a caterer we're considering for our nuptials next year at the Raritan Inn in Califon. We decided to make a day of it.
Although we only caught sunfish, the action was fast and furious and the sunfish were, for the second time in 2 days.....huge. This time, I took a photo with a bluegill stretching the tape a full 9-inches. I think this may actually qualify for an NJ Catch and Release Skillful Angler Award, but I have to look into that.
After that, we headed to Clinton to meet Tina and Chris and possibly check out the "Haunted Mill." Of course, while we waited for them to get off the canoe, we fished a bit from the bridge. Upon their arrival, I caught a white perch.
This was a long wonderful day and we spent a good hunk of it in Hunterdon. In case you're wondering, this day has inspired me to more actively play the lottery so that Lindsay and I can spend more time out here with each other and not have to worry about going to work.
It's always nice to have a dollar and a dream.
