I spent the afternoon with Anne at the bird sactuary at the mouth of the Housatonic River. What a gorgeous day! Nice to be out in such weather.

We saw abundant birdlife, and during our travels we came across hundreds of horseshoe crabs in their mating rituals. It looked like an orgy out there.....:Eyecrazy:

As for the fishing, I took one short striper in about twenty minutes total casting. I had an opportunity with a nice pod of better fish, but that opportunity quickly vanished when a jetski buzzed me from only fifty feet away. Some people.....:mad:

So there wasn't much fishing, but the company was good. It's good for us to get out together like this once in a while because it rekindles Anne's interest in fishing, and once again reinforces in her why I love it so much. There's always more fishing available around the corner.
