My Fishing Trip

I saw Dr. Bizzant yesterday and he burned the crap out of my face - apparently, bad sunburns do catch up with you. 

My little green earrings - not for sale - these I made for myself but I do have others for sale on Dian's Earrings at Etsy.

I was 21 when I went fishing with a friend who had a small boat with a gas-powered engine.  We spent the entire day on the lake.  I don't even remember if we caught any fish.  He probably did.  I am a very poor fisherwoman.  Anyway, I came home with the most horrid sunburn on my face.  It hurt for more than a week. It soaked up every bottle of moisture lotion that I had.

I remember fishing on the Boise River and actually caught several trout but I caught one in the tail, the next one on the side of the trout's mouth.  I don't think I ever got one in the mouth - some fisher person I was!

River trout and salmon - yum, I love them both.

Wow, he certainly did remove a lot of from your face. Hope you are feeling a little less sting today.

Never been fishing unless you call going crabbing fishing!

I have to be really careful in the sun, I burn as soon as look at it. My hubby and kids enjoy fishing. The last few years we have been to Cornwall and Devon on holiday and stayed in cottages with fishing lakes on the premises, same again this year.

That’s a cute rainbow trout you caught! I think you’re not a poor fisherwoman; maybe you’re just not used to it. You’re lucky enough to go home with a catch, compared to others who get nothing, LOL. I’m not a good fisherwoman, too, but I’m good in cooking whatever my husband will catch.
