Stunning afternoon. Was out in the paddocks hacking back super-thistles and brambles with a Wilkinson Sword (machete, not razor).
Then on this last day of summer I saw her.
Ladybird was a feisty model but
we got there in the end and with the late summer paddock as backdrop:
Ladybirds,usually harbingers of spring but this one bringing philosophical thoughts on the passage of summer.
The passage of time.
Back to fishing and my thoughts are with Trond, Per, Enrico, Manfred, Thies et al enjoying a last Gaula cast of 2014. And a bonfire on Langoy beach.
May their last chance cast tighten and zing to a sullen ten-kilo beast turning its head in the cool fast flow downstream to Renna.
