Jake was up at 7 and fishing by the time my lazy bum woke up. He had already caught 5 fish when he got back around 10! He was the happiest. Good sized trout and a beautiful morning with rainbows. He had his coffee, I had my tizzy, and soupy gross breakfast together. Jake added too much water, oops! Watery eggs it is.
After breakfast, we packed up some lunch and snacks and headed to hike to lake O’Brien. The trail said it was only 2 km but it felt much further. Whew we were sore! The lake was so peaceful. It was a bit swampy due to the heavy rains but it almost made the scenes even more beautiful. Jake fished and I caught up on some writing . We made the best of it until it began raining again, and then we headed back down. I went back to camp to paint and Jake stopped by the river to continue fishing.
Jake finished his book in the bug net hammock and then made friends with our neighbors and played a game while I finished up painting. They were the nicest people from Calgary! I wish we got a picture. We made a very delicious but not so good for us backpacking dinner and then hung out for a bit before heading inside for sleep to escape from the bugs.
