Slow day of fishing to end a killer weekend but absolutely stellar weather.

Now back at the camper winding down with my wife and planning the next adventure. I'm thinking it is time for some backpacking....
Good idea to get it all in. No telling what kind of smoke conditions coming our way. Bugs getting fired up in the high country.:(

I ended up on San Juan Island for the weekend, partly for fun and partly for research. And as the town, in its infinite wisdom, had decided to proceed with its annual fireworks display (but cancelled the parade), it seemed like a great opportunity to see how well the TG-5 could handle pyrotechnics.

But before the human show, there was a natural show in the form of a full moon on a calm, largely cloudless sky.

The harbor filled with boats to view the display, including two ferries that tarried in port for the duration of the half-hour show. [Frankly, it would have been hard for them to have left the dock with all the boats scattered around.]

And then it began.

The honking of boat horns and the ferries' whistles indicated the delight at the display.

Swimmy, did you run into any golden stones during or at the end of the CA stone hatch?

Lots of goldens.

And yellow sallies, caddis (both black and tan) pmd's, and green drakes.

Pretty much a bug buffet.

Decisions, decisions. Do I go with the yellow plate special, fruit bowl or the mixed salad? Fish life is good in those rivers.

When my wife and I migrated West in the early 70's we stopped in Boze for the night. The next morning we had our coffee outside and gazed at the scenery, then had a real serious conversation about if we should stop there and forget about going on to WA. Being one who has to have a plan I opted to keep going and we both have no regrets doing so, but sometimes I wonder, "what if?"

Glad you got your selves some and thanks for the pics, I really enjoyed the voyage.
