Mischief Ad Insp.- First Catch


Mischief Ad Insp.- First Catch

In 1989, after we visited the church in Grand Marais, we took time off for a family vacation. Our campsite was right next to a lake, so Harry and I fished from shore with David and John. It was the first time either boy had fished. They each caught a baby sunny, too small to keep, so we tossed both fish back into the lake to grow a little more.

Photos: 1) David (3) was enthralled by his first fish. 2) John (2) was afraid of the wiggly sunny. 3) Steven (9 mo) just sat and watched it all.
