Time on the River

jackriverWhen the countryside erupts in green and the fish are biting, it’s time to load up the boat and go catch some.

My son Jack loves to fish…until he gets bored. At that time, we beach the boat and look for skipping rocks, and generally hike around until the boredom clears.

So it was on the Missouri River near Platte the other day; we caught plenty of fish, but the boredom never really set in…both of us decided that the green landscape needed some exploring and we had to partake before parting back down the highway.

We found a Canada Goose nest on this bluff, some cactus and plenty of ideal skipping rocks down on the shore. A perfect night.
