We went down to the dock to buy our license like other years and the girl just handed me a phone # to call and find out where I could get them. To be honest she must have been having a bad day. She did say Walmart has them. That is 12 miles up the road, surely some place in town sells fishing license. But at the hardware store the kid was very nice and said the State did not let them sell them anymore, but that I could get them online, surely ‘OUR’ young lady knew that.
Have they gone up? you betcha. $22.50 for 3 days plus $6 for the lake permit. OUCH! Since we won’t fish but three days, we took a walk around the lake. It is 3 miles around.
(I mentioned to Sherry and Mark about the trees down up in Mel & Dar’s neck of the woods. And Down here Don and Evelyn have lost a lot on the farm, trees down everywhere)
At the trail a sign read, ‘Nature Trail Closed Due to Wind Damage’, there is a lot of that going around this year. We went anyway, I figure wind damage is part of nature, right? We met a trail’s keeper soon after we started. He said go ahead but there are a few trees across the trail.
(Our Son Mark and Sherry ahead on the trail)
The trip was mostly shady, one river walk was completely closed. And one pier was closed, but we went out anyway, it didn’t look too bad, nature, said. We are on a nature trail.
It was a good walk. We saw one small alligator, probably 2 ft. long. I kept looking for its mother. It was exercise. Sherry and Mark both had phone calls as we walked. Communications, it is hard to think back to pay phones and land lines to keep in contact.
Down South and especially near water our trees usually pull a ball of dirt out of the ground, but many of these were broken in half.
There were a couple places we really did have to climb to get thru.
This spot looked like the trail was eaten by Spanish moss.
This was one BIG hollow tree, it was about 7’thru. I coulda got in out of the rain in this one.
This was another giant, about 6-7’ thru.
We had a good walk, but the A/C did feel good once we finished. haha
Thanks for stopping by the log.
