Too Hot To Fish


The temperature is nearing 100, there's no breeze, and not a cloud in the sky. Summer is going to be hot and dry. And we're at the lake. When the fish aren't biting, I'll take their hint to stay inside where it's cool. Fortunately, our camper has good air conditioning. We bring books, movies and icy cold drinks, so we're good here. Early morning walks and bike rides give us fresh air and exercise before the thermometer hits 90. Late evening stargazing is perfect with clear skies and a big bowl of popcorn.

People watching is another fun way to pass the time. We see lots of kids, dogs, old folks, fishermen and bubbas. We watch as they set up their sites and launch their boats. There are lots of interesting sights, sounds and activities going on at a campground. While I normally say to each his own, I do have one burning question: Why on earth do 300 pound fat women wear bikinis in public?
