Weekend Recap

October 17, 2011 at 5:45 AM 5 comments

Happy Monday.  Sorry I missed out on a Happy Friday post.  I’ve decided that on the days when life is too crazy to cut myself some slack on posting – that way I can aim for quality not quantity on posting.  We shall see how this new theory works out.

Graham and I went up to Mount Shasta this past weekend.  It was the exact getaway that he and I needed.  We’ve both been so overworked that on Friday we considered bailing out on the trip and parking ourselves in front of the TV all weekend.  Boy, am I glad we pushed on through and made the four hour drive to Shasta.

This is what you see as you drive into town –

Majestic.  We really recouped this weekend and welcomed the simple life.  We slept in, ate hearty meals, drank micro brews, hiked Panther Meadows on Mount Shasta, perused a crystal hippie shop, lingered in a local small book store, fly fished the Upper Sac and took in the natural beauty sans phones, computers or televisions.

Graham could not have been more excited to fly fish and he tried to convince me I was equally as excited.  I can’t say that I was but I’m never opposed to time on the stream.

I didn’t have a chance to get my fly fishing gear and so we had to outfit me with what was at the Shasta house.  There was a size large waders and wading Teva type shoes that I think were my dad’s (a men’s size 12).

You know I love to share the most flattering photos.  At least I caught one heck of a fish with all the oversized gear…

Hardy har har.  We thought we were funny when we took this shot…again no TV and it was a Saturday night.  You weren’t dressing up in waders and taking photos with wooden fish on your Saturday night?

I actually didn’t catch any fish but Graham did.  Let me tell you wading in size 12 men’s shoes was very cumbersome and sometimes Graham was so eager with fishing that he’d forget about his bigfoot wife trying to trail behind.  Eventually I found a rocky shore to read and he kept on down the river.  Both happy.

    I haven’t been to Mount Shasta in years. Looks like so much fun. Especially post kidinskis. That kind of vacation is a rare, rare thing these days!
