Eamon and Aine also fished off of the dock. Each of them caught a fish having oddles of fun just casting and baiting the hooks. They used snail innards, found along the shore, for bait. They both became quite good at setting up the line and attaching bait. Their only disappointment was Heather’s reluctance to agree to a fish dinner.
We did take a daytrip to Ludington, MI while up north as well as a visit to nearby Reed City for some ice cream and the laundry mat. Most of the time was spent reading, exploring and relaxing at the cottage. It was a lot of fun.
No technology was an interesting phenomenon. The absence of TV was not a factor for our family, but the kids were surprised not to have the internet. The kept asking to look up things on the internet. They wanted to send Daddy a picture of their frogs, investigate what species they had found and sent emails to people about their exploits. Aine kept asking me to just turn on my laptop, so she could talk to Daddy.
