Family Fishing Day ~ Sara

Sunday Snapshot

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.


  1. Sounds like a great fun day. Mo xoxxoxo

  2. Gotta love Family Fish Week! It’s the perfect bonding time for the entire family. And think about all the free stuff, eh? It’s a good discipline for kids too. Fishing teaches them how to be patient, and it’s also a great opportunity for them to learn about the different species of fish.
