This lucky angler is fishing at one of the forks of Lake Isabella. I'll have to go back and do my research, but the lake was created by allowing the river to flood over the old town. I have fished in the lake and managed to lose a lot of lures in those trees! I haven't been fishing in over 30 years and aside from riding along in the boat, don't really have any interest in fishing! (That's how I feel about golfing, too - I'll ride along in the cart, just don't expect me to swing the club...)
We drove up to the lake to see the water levels. It's incredible what a little rain can do! Last year, the water levels were really low, so it was heartening to see how many people were out enjoying the cool summer weather.
Tap-dancing through life on two left feet without a compass; laughing, crying and holding hands with others who find themselves in the same place!
"Some days I feel like a fish out of water...if you find me on one of those days, please return me to the beach.
"People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long course of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering." -St. Augustine
