Sunday Random Shots

The Dove hunting this week was miserable. The thought is that Irene and her fury drove all the migratory doves out of Kent County. My son did have a beautiful 35 yard left to right crossing shot and I popped a few. The sunflowers pictured are NOT what our field looked like this year....drought in May and June gave is a dessicated stalk of only waist height which did not help for hunter concealment. Well, the pig roast and camraderie was good anyway.
I went at it again with my buddy Wight yesterday A.M. and only shot one...but we had a great time catching up and a tremendous crab feast at Sambo's in Liepsic friday evening. Wight came down from Connecticut and I picked him up at the Wilmington Train station on Friday. We got a few hours in the dove field Friday evening before the crab dinner and had some icy cold beers and good conversation in the field while sitting on the back of my F-150 tailgate. Nothing like a post-hunt brew with one of your oldest friends to make things seem in equilibrium.
My daughter had her horse grazing in our back yard yesterday and this picture rounds out the random images....along with the spectacular view from the window of the master suite on Lower Saranac lake where we stayed during our recent trip...and a shot of my wife and I with our best friends Bonnie and Glenn at Glenn's parent's Camp on Lake Colby...around the corner from Lower Saranac.
So, last randomalia is a few pictures of the Ritz in Cancun. We cannot wait to head to the Ritz Carlton in Cancun on Tuesday morning to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. I have some special celbratory things planned for the trip....and to satisfy my inner Sportsman, I will get in a 4 hour Marlin deep sea fishing venture on Saturday morning while my lovely wife enjoys the hotel Spa.
Enjoy the waning of Summer and get ready for Waterfowl and small game seasons which will be here shortly!

Congratulations on 20 years!! On our anniversary we usually go sailing in the BVI. I love it. I know nothing about sailing. I let my husband and the other men do all the work and I sit on the front of the catamaran and admire the scenery.

By the way, I've heard you talk about your friend B.R. - I know a B.R. here in the DC area and that's a common name unless those are your friends first and last initals. Wonder if it's the same B.R. ??
