This week was different from the past few. The temperatures have been becoming much more pleasant. I have walked three different mornings this week to enjoy the greatness of nature.
Last Monday, however, I went Lock 8 on the Allegheny River to try my luck at some fishing. I failed to catch any fish during the couple of hours attempting to do so. I became snagged with the very first cast and that event seemed to set the mode for the rest of this trip. I was snagged many times and lost my riggings up to eight times. I missed one fish and hooked another but the size and, possibly, the specie either broke or bit the line. I saw three deer and a heron this morning.
I was to visit my sister on Wednesday morning, so I planned a walk along Red Mill Run and the mouth of Cowanshannock since she lives near this area. The cool comfortable early hour was great for walking. I saw four buck at one time. I failed to capture any with photos. There was lots of foliage around the four deer and the photos I managed to take were of little value.. A stray cat followed me around for a little time. I always hate to see dogs and cats dropped off to fend for themselves.
Thursday morning I walked a couple of miles near my homestead prior to visiting my family. The early time was cool enough that I was forced to roll my sleeves down. Later, I saw a buck walking the creek bottom. I managed a couple of pics.
Friday morning I walked along Buffalo Creek in the Yellow Dog area of Armstrong County. This was, mostly a road walk. I saw a great blue heron a few times and two wood ducks around the water source. I, also, saw a few decent sized carp within the slow-moving creek. I debated whether to go carp fishing.
