Perch Were Running?
Spread the word. Perch are on a run, jumpin' into the boat!
I think I snapped these photos in Port Bruce 2 - 3 years ago with a pocket camera. And when I had parked my bike I immediately slipped it out of the back pocket of my riding jeans because there was a nice-looking lineup of Harleys next to the channel. Why were they all clustered together, like ducks in a row?
I asked the question to the lead rider. They were police officers, out of Aylmer,
on a training run. "No problem," I said. "As you were."
Though my interest soon turned toward Lake Erie, I watched as a lone boater entered the Port Bruce channel. Maybe he was all-fished-out, or had reached his limits both fish- and temperature-wise.
A few seconds after he passed me by I noticed that fishing boats on Lake Erie were as thick as fleas. If I'd had a boat I woulda gone fishin' too! It was a warm day but I can still stand the warm for an hour or so if I have an umbrella and a cooler of bevs handy.
The short port pier was crowded as well - and me without a pole and a pocket o'worms - but I had the main drag to myself.
Lone bike. Lone table and chair at The Corner View Cafe. Lone sparrow : )
Both the bike and the bird have flown the coop (Sold and Sailed).
Bird: How will you get back to Port Bruce for - literally - thousands of more photos? For A1 BLTs, coffee and Key Lime ice cream at The Corner View?
Gord: I'll ride my bicycle. I'll borrow Pat's car.
(After a serious moment's thought).
Gord: Maybe I'll have me another set of wheels by next summer!

Hey, I only have 14,385 more photos to review, edit, display, thereby boring people to tears!
