Beautiful weekend, hardly anybody went up, and the traffic was light on the way back. I found that, before, when the gas price went way up, nobody went up just for the weekend. I am going to officially declare a light mosquito season. For us, they are almost totally absent. Normally, we get clouds of them in the evening, and now barely a hum.
Horseflies and deerflies are up a bit right now. Nothing really heavy yet. Normally we are whapping them at the dock and feeding the fish. The puppy has really learned to chomp them. I've been fishing a few times for deep fish in the lake, but I've only caught a few rock bass. We saw some big bass nests in the the shallow bay, but the bass have recently gone, and I hope they were successful. Next week is bass season, and then I go shallow with casting.
The two peregrines in the nest are happy, and two siblings from last year are hanging around screaming all the time, perhaps hoping for a treat from Mama.
