Brady and I had planned on going fishing with some of our great gear on Memorial Day. Wouldn’t ya know, it was raining when we woke up that day. We decided to drive down to Payson Lake anyway and see if maybe by the time we got there the clouds would be gone. We got our sunflower seeds and trail mix, and listened to some good country music the whole way down. The fates decided to smile upon us for a good 2 hour period! We were pretty much going fishing just to relax, so it ended up being perfect! It was so beautiful up there! While waiting for the fish to take the bait, I really enjoyed just sitting and taking in the beautiful scenery.
The Trout were jumping out of the water all over the place too! It was such a fun way to spend quality time with my honey! And a nice way to reflect on what soldiers past and present have done in order to give us the freedom and niceties we enjoy! We are so grateful for what they have done for us!
Brady had gotten a bite and started to reel it in, but being the gentlemen he is, he wanted to let me reel it in (he probably knew I wouldn’t catch anything).
I was nervous and apparently gave the fish a little too much slack and didn’t set the hook, because it wriggled free and got away. Ooops. This stick was the only thing we caught that day…
It was so beautiful up there! We loved it for the couple hours the sun was out! Then we had to pack up quickly because it was starting to rain ☺
