We reach a point in late August where it is obvious that a change is underway. For me there are signs like the goldenrod coming into bloom and the shorebird migrations getting started. But I know that it is here when the light begins to flatten out and I can’t see into the water like I could a month ago. Even with polarized glasses it becomes more difficult to see into the water and see rocks and or fish.
The 50th birthday celebration was great. My brother, sister in law and nephew drove up for the festivities. We had lobster on the lawn with friends and family Friday evening, including oysters brought by a friend who works at one of the local oyster farms. (they were part of a delicious stew for supper this week) On my birthday I was guided by my son on a smallmouth bass fishing trip. Spent the afternoon at an opening for an art show that was supposed to include a piece of my other son’s work.
On Saturday I’ll be 50 hard to imagine that I could be so old. The family has big plans. I’ve been told to take the day off and there are lots of secret phone calls going on so I’m sure it will be big. It is a delight to have made it to the point where I am happy doing what I do and do it well enough to be successful and have a great family to share it all.
