Here are the way the seagulls and cormorant keep out of the water.

I edited last week post to let you know where I was.

The fishing is still going strong. I caught this 15" small mouth bass today from Lake Hodgson. This is the first one for me from the lake. I have caught a lot of large mouth bass but not these. A great fight and released back into the lake.

I had 30 crappie in this cooler. This catch fed 6 adults with a lot of leftovers.
The next day a catch of 20 crappie and a bluegill.
This was 14 crappie and 6 yellow perch. Certainly a good catch and going strong.

There are a lot of signs in the area.
The signs in the bar all have an Ohio theme.
This is an Ohio brewery in Cleveland. The home of the NBA Basketball Champions.
Even the Rocky Mountain beer has an Ohio feel.

I found this bud in a friends garden. It looks like a big rose bud but you can see by the leaves that it is not. 


It is among the white azaleas.
The bloom is very large and pretty.
Here is a view of the bush in full bloom.
A flowering tree is at home in the garden.
It has an unusual petal arrangement. Flowers can be so pretty in the garden.
