Picnic and fishing day

With an unexpected day off and a wonderful hot summers day, couldnt resist going for a picnic and a bit of fishing from the shore in Queen Charlotte Sounds. I had plenty of good 'bites' but never caught any fish, lost a few hooks and sinkers though! Erle broke his rod so never got into the fishing. Enjoyed a nice impromptu picnic and a swim, the sea was quite warm so I had a quick dip. The sea warm nice and warm on the top layer but much colder deeper down, very refreshing.  Erle took a photo to prove it but it got lost in the ether somewhere. A very pleasant day and I only got mildly sunburnt, Erle not at all.  So good just to relax by the sea in the sun, and read my tablet where I have a good book by Brice Courtney and am enjoying it.

 A perfect day.

I am assuming that you have summer down there while we have winter up here. It looks like a beautiful summer spot with great photos to share. I would take summer over winter right now.

Not a fisherman, but know a lot of them. I hear it's not the number of fish caught but the companionship and the experience that counts.

It looks that you really have a nice day (do you want some snow there… :)
I see you are from New Zealand. I had a pe when I was about 14-16 years old. he was in Christchurch and her name was Jill Watts. It fun how it can remember so old things. But I have always been interesting of New Zealand just for her. And I thought some day travel to New Zealand, but it doesn't never happened.

Thanks for your visiting my blog.

Now you see this sounds like my perfect kind of fishing day Glennis, I wouldn't like to actually catch a fish, wouldn't know what to do with it :), but the swim and the picnic sound a lot of fun!
