I had another great weekend up at the in-laws! Here’s a view of the docks at Williams & Hall Outfitters:
And the beautiful Moose Lake:
Visiting the in-laws is awesome for a lot of reasons, not the least of these reasons is that the W&H cook makes a lot of our meals for us. She makes some mean biscuits & gravy!
The in-laws generously gave me the second half of my birthday present, a fishing pole to match my new reel! I was quite a fisherman growing up and in college, but I haven’t been fishing in a few years. The last time I went was a complete disaster. I’ll spare you the details, but let’s just say my old fishing pole is Resting-in-Peace at the bottom of Ensign Lake after I threw it from the canoe in a fit of rage several years ago.
So we spent a morning fishing on Skull Lake in the Boundary Waters.
This next picture is kind of dumb, but I think it’s hilarious because it looks like Mel’s brother doesn’t have a head.
Here’s our spoils:
I didn’t catch either of them. Mel and her brother did.
We also went hiking on the Secret – Blackstone – Ennis Lake Trail:
