The wind doesn’t seem to want to stop here on Lake Winnipesaukee this week. It was so bad already at 5 AM as well as colder than I could believe that I stayed in my sleeping bag until well after 6. Then I headed out and struggled in the canoe trying to maneuver myself popping for smallies. I lucked into two small ones and called it a day before 9 AM.
I called it a day because we had a surprise 50th anniversary party for my folks. My sister gets most the credit for organizing the superb party that was held down in Newburyport, Massachusetts. More than thirty of my folk’s longtime friends (many they haven’t seen in years) came. The surprise absolutely blew their minds! Great times back here on the East Coast!
