Wait a minute. Ice fishing and snowmobiling? Those are not my usual activities! Maybe this is someone else's blog!
Nope. It's mine.

Tuesday was gorgeous. Aaron and I got up early to celebrate his birthday with some ice fishing. I have never gone ice fishing to ice fish before, so I thought it would be Aaron's gift. (What? We are cheap!) Here are the pictures from the day.
Aaron checking the ice... how does it look to you???

A Coho Salmon: first catch of the morning
Shadows of love
We caught one more salmon before the day was through. I tell you, if the weather wasn't 30 degrees, sunny and calm, I don't think I could do that very often. I mean, I know I can go in the shanty, but it's warm in there, and I fall asleep! Bartending and ice fishing are not on the same schedule. But we had lovely time!
Aaron is in charge of panking a part of the trail for the CopperDog this weekend, so yesterday I went with him for an adventure. Here is a video of the highlights in less than two minutes.
Today the winds have really picked up. Now it's cold again. Today I finally psyched myself up for a run (you know how I love to run), but when I opened the door, the wind nearly blew it back in my face! Heck no! I'll stay home and write a blog! There's so much going on this week that I figured I'd better stay ahead of the game.
Here are a few notes about optimizing your time on this blog:
- You can click anywhere on the pictures to see them bigger
- You can click on the videos to see them bigger (bottom right corner)
- You can click on the youtube icon on the videos to watch them on Youtube
- You can click on any words that are brown and underlined -- it's a link.
You might be computer savvy and know all this, but I just figured some of it out myself! Happy clicking!
