Family Fishing Day ~ Sara
Yesterday Logan noticed an advertisement for Family Fishing Week. Yup, no license needed for this week and our local provincial park was also offering free rod, bait, and tackle usage as well. To top it off, kids were also entitled to a free hot dog and drink. So we piled into the van and off we drove to the most urban provincial park I have ever been to. It is laughably too close to civilization. You can hear the hum of the nearby freeway as well as railway tracks that are about a stone's throw away. The beaches were littered with goose droppings and the washrooms sported a wildly nauseating aroma, but we didn't care, we were there to fish! Unfortunately, these pictures were NOT a representation of what we saw. ( These shots were taken at Yu'Yuan gardens in Shanghai) We saw nary a fish today; in fact except for a rumour I heard about one person catching a fish, I'm not sure if anyone lining the fishing zone caught anyting other than the occasional weed. It was still lots of fun for the kids. Well, some of the kids. Rykauna had more fun taking pictures. Here are some pics she took.
