If you are wondering about my dad’s neighbor, the pink flamingos are gone. I didn’t check their backyard to see if they have moved the pink plastic flamingos next to their swimming pool, now that would be a sight.
We went back to Wilson Creek on Saturday afternoon and this time my second sister and niece also joined us.
As for Bo, he wanted to test out his new chest waders.
Fly-fishing is a hobby and sport that would allow you to get close to nature. You wading in the water and stalking fish in their natural habitat, and being in a fish’s environment this gives you a sense of serenity and fairness. Bo still has a lot to learn about fly-fishing.
I also think that this part of the State will look very pretty in the Fall when the leaves are changing colors and the crisp cool autumn air in the next month or so. I know it is hard to imagine right now when the air is so hot and humid, although it is a lot cooler in the mountain.
Lee loves the water. As for me, I think the mountain stream water is a little too cold but it doesn’t seem to bother her.
We had a chance to explore a different part of Wilson Creek Gorge this time. Wilson Creek is a water system that originates in Calloway Peak and stretches for 23 miles before dumping into John’s River. It was added to the Wild and Scenic River System on August 18, 2000. There are several designations in Wilson creek area which include: Wild – 4.6 miles; Scenic – 2.9 miles; Recreational – 15.8 miles.
This is a great place for hikers also, next time we have to look for the waterfall.
