Favourite Things Friday Vol. 7

Today is my Dad’s birthday!  I decided for my favourite thing this week I would share something that I love to do with him, fishing!

I have spent a lot of time in my life in the boat with my dad. I love it!!
He is a great fisherman, we always catch something.

This is how it used to go circa 1989… get up early early (6am) drive to the lake, put the boat in the water, put on my awesome neon shades and get out my Fear Street book, wait for something exciting to happen!

I don’t’ have the neon shades anymore and I have moved on from Fear Street but basically the scenario is the same!

A few years ago we went salmon fishing in Tofino, it was so great. Dad caught some huge fish. He was in heaven.

Then a at my sister’s wedding in Maui we went deep sea fishing. Dad caught this Mahi Mahi, it was very cool!

I love spending time on the water with my Dad, he is the best.

Thank you so much Dad, for always taking us with you, for baiting all our hooks, for cleaning all those fish and for teaching us how to keep the rod tip up and reel down!

Happy Birthday Dad! I hope you have a great day!
I can’t wait until our next fishing adventure.
