April 4, 2013 Memories of yesterday.........
It also gives us quiet time to visit and talk world events without so much noise and interruption. But, after Scrabble, Toby and I go on our daily adventure. Since I was there....and didn't know what I should do for the day.....I thought, why not walk the whole bay like I used to when I was a kid. The river is frozen so we can walk across and keep on going. So, we did.
Anyway, off ...... down the beach we went. We got down in to the corner of the bay and around to where the commercial fisherman used to live when I was a kid. It is kind of hard to see these neat old places go into disrepair and ruin. So many memories there.
Being fishermen, and our neighbors across the bay......they sometimes brought us treats like some fresh smoked herring or some pickled fish they had made. Homemade, fresh pickled fish is so much better than what you will buy in a store. For one thing, it isn't mushy. It is soooo good!
I also remember the summer day they got in from picking nets and called us to come and see what they had caught that morning.....a sturgeon. Wow! We were so excited to get to see that before they released it back into Lake Superior.
Anyway......things don't remain the same. There is just change, and more change....constant, never ending. It is the one thing you can count on these days......change!
We continued out to the area at the end of the point where the new houses begin. They used to own that land out there too. Now....it's big houses. Different. So....Toby and I turned around and headed back toward "home." (My old home as a kid!)
