Gone Fishin'

Wednesday, February 08, 2017tee

As you can see, we've been busy during summer. With the folks coming over to visit, we were up and about for almost everyday for the first two weeks during the Christmas break. 

Another first is a visit to the Buxton Trout and Salmon Farm to try our hands at fishing. J and I have experienced fishing in Cebu a long time ago with friends so this was not entirely a new thing for me. I decided to sit this one out and watch from the sidelines as it was very hot and it took ages for fish to bite. The folks and family had fun and enjoyed their experience, though, and that's all that matters. Of course, little ones had a blast running around in the grass. This isn't always a good thing since my little man is starting to be a fearless, curious explorer who might just jump into the water if you're not looking. Oh sometimes I miss the infant days when you can just leave him in one corner and know he'd be there when you come back! :)) 

After 4 hours, everybody else finally managed to catch at least one fish. Happy with that, we decided to call it a day and started planning salmon and trout meals. :)) 

Buxton Trout and Salmon Farm is almost couple of hours from Melbourne. They have a shelter with picnic tables and barbecue facilities on-site. The trip going there was less enjoyable for me, as the road was mainly filled with sharp turns, which caused motion sickness. If you're planning to go, generally I'd say it's a good experience especially if you're looking for something new. But just be warned about the road. :)
