Windy-Blustery Day--Not all Lost
Wanted to fish in the worst way today but it was a little to windy for my pee-wee boat so ended up laying low and working around the 'tininthewind'. We did surface long enough on the end of the day to head out to about the only spot we know so far for good food, "The Landing".
Seated next to us, the only other couple in the dining area, were Denny and Sue Vande Linde, permanent residents since retirement to the Lake Vermillion area. They moved from the Twin Cities area after they sold their business. Denny now keeps busy with guiding, and a pest control business. I started a conversation between us mostly asking questions about the fishing and Denny helped me with advise even though he doesn't fish bass much, preferring musky and walleye. Denny and Sue ended up joining us at our table and we had a most pleasant exchange covering many subjects. We probably won't ever see them again but we are so fortunate in this life style of ours to have encounters like this with folks and it only takes moments to feel like long time friends.
We left the restaurant and made our way to the marina to check on my boat. It was fine. Right were I left it, and beckoning to go fishing, but that will wait until tomorrow, weather permitting.. If not there is always another day!
