August- here we go!
Updated: Mar 20, 2020
Well Week 11 was a fantastic wrap up to July. We had a great mix of newbies and those that have been coming for years. Guests got along great, birthdays young and not-so-young were celebrated, and all the kids became fast friends. Water temps are in the mid-70’s; with cooler temps early in the week and warmer temps later in the week, those that adjusted fishing tactics were more successful. We had gorgeous calm evenings and mornings most days.
Some nice fish pics from this fine group. Here Jim’s smallie:
And Mark with another smallie and nice walleye he released:
Bruce, whose been coming up to Tall Pines for years and has fished the Wabaskang since he was a kid, caught this beauty of a walleye:
And this pic of Bruce’s would have been the best pic of the week if it wasn’t for the hat 🙂
Trooper KT reels in this nice walleye in extreme weather for July:
Camp was full of activity this week. The kayaks were in the water within the first hour of check-ins on Saturday. Brennan and Aiden started a game of wiffle-ball a couple afternoons that other campers joined in on
I love how Fred and Bonnie brought lawn chairs to cheer everyone on!
A nice turnout for campfire-n-marshmellows night:
We changed things up this week with grilling burgers-n-dogs for potluck; thanks to Steve Meyers for help manning the grills:
Shorelunch islands are great for picnics too; we got out a few times this week- here we lunched at Keynote on the perfect weather day:
KT and Austin did private watercolor and acrylic art classes with local artist Helen from Broadberry Divisions- their talents were impressive (happy birthday to KT’s mom):
We took multiple blueberry picking trips, and it was wonderful having Andrea back this week to lead caravans as she is the blueberry picking queen!
Tricia and Addison used their creativity to design and set up a scavenger hunt/amazing race type treasure hunt for the kiddos. So far the Carlson kids have the shortest time of 9min. and 15 seconds. We celebrated with ice-cream afterwards!
The Carlsons, a great addition to our Tall Pines Family, appreciated all the little things up here like this view they shared with us:
A special thank you to the Moser and Meyers families for their kindness in leaving so many goodies for us (we’ll be eating good all week!)
And some more pics from last week:
And lovin all our fishermen and women of the next generation:
Here, Earl’s Inspirational Pic of the week with our nephew Sam:
Usually I’ve been wrapping up with a sunset pic, but this week decided to do an early morning pic- nature at its best:
Until next time…
