Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Too tired to do a very detailed post. Loretta and I took a nice walk this morning around Idlewild Lake. This gentleman was spending a lovely summer morning doing a little fishing. I wonder if he has responsibilities waiting him later, or if he can fill his days with activities he likes. At any rate, I thought his rowing technique was interesting, and the reflection just about perfect.

Joan--this stand-up reverse rowing style can be seen on working dories in the Maritimes & New England, though not all that often. I ran across it fishing the Potomac R out of Fletcher's Boathouse, where it was practiced by some of the old-timers fishing for shad, and striped bass running the river.

He's looking for something in the water. Edge of a weed bed or drop off or some other location that will mark the "right" place to catch fish. By standing he can better see into the water below the surface.

He must be singing that too.

Row, row, row your boat.

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to only do things we like, all day every day. I hope that is the case for this fisherman

Great reflection! I hope he brought home a good catch for dinner.
