Fishing near Fords Pond yesterday and Lola shrieked “Bear!” And there it was, a huge black bear trundling down the dirt road minding its own business. We gave the game commission a call, and they told us to “Just leave it alone, there’s lots of bears down there.” Oooookkk. In other news we saw snapping turtles.

Later today we’ll begin our road trip to Vermont and Lake Champlain for a spot of camping, outdoor life and fishing. I’m sure there will be a few breweries to be visited along the way – Magic Hat and Otter Creek to name but two.
Apparently you can shoot pike in Lake Champlain at this time of year. I can’t wait for dynamite season.
Last time we took a serious road trip it was in a SMART car up a bunch of big mountains in Spain. Now that was fun too!
