I went on a bike ride this afternoon with the intention of doing a bit of fishing, but I came up empty-handed. It’s ironic that the larger lake near my house is so unpredictable, while the small neighborhood pond is teeming with bluegill. But I do enjoy trying my luck at different lakes, and the bike ride itself was a lot of fun, so I’m not too disappointed.
I got a new Insta360 X3 camera the other day, and I took Piplup for a ride to test it out. It’s amazing! I can capture angles that I’ve never been able to before, and the test-run was a lot of fun. I’m not sure if the footage is good enough for a YouTube video yet, but there will definitely be more to come.
The evenings are getting cooler which means I can go bicycling without the need for a follow-up shower. 😂
Tonight the clouds were very beautiful. And the bike ride was pleasant. Several houses were already decorated for Halloween. I am looking forward to seeing more decorations as the month progresses. 🎃
I went fishing at the local lake this morning. I decided to target bluegill, which are a high-probability fish, instead of bass, which I have never caught before. I caught a small one right away, but I wasn’t able to catch any larger ones. The fishing spot got crowded pretty quickly after a boy scout troop arrived, so I packed up my gear and went for a ride before heading home. It was still a fun little trip, and I’m glad I got to catch a bluegill. 🎣
Despite the 105° F heat, Piplup and I went for a bike ride today. I took precautions to stay safe in the heat, such as covering up with sun protection and drinking plenty of water with electrolytes. We rode at a slow pace from our house to the end of the newly-renovated trail. The renovations have made the bike path much more enjoyable to ride, as it is now uninterrupted by any intersections with the street. I rode about 27 kilometers and only had to cross one major street. 😀
It was a great ride, and I’m glad we took the time to do it. Even though it was hot, we were able to stay safe and hydrated. I’m looking forward to going back on the trail soon.
