Gone Fishing

Not long ago I needed to buy a few items from my local outdoor store. Usually, when I drive into town, I combine several errands to make the trip worthwhile. But that time I just made the trip for those few things. When I got to the store the front door was locked and the lights were off. Strange for a mid-afternoon. Then, I noticed a small handwritten note taped to the window: “Gone Fishing. We’ll be back in a few days.” I laughed and thought how nice it was that the owners decided to take a break from their work and just get out on the lake and fish. Whether they went fishing or not didn’t really matter to me. I wasn’t even annoyed that I had to wait to get that water bottle and a repair kit for my aging tent.

In a few days, it will be my 2nd anniversary of writing this blog Finding Solace and I’ve decided to take a few weeks off. Return refreshed. Maybe with a change. Perhaps share my Australia and New Zealand adventures. Possibly archive this blog. Start a new one. Maybe both.

Yeah, I’ve been in Australia visiting my son for a month and then I’m off to New Zealand for two weeks.

Think of this blog as my little handwritten note on my window: Gone Fishing. I’ll be back soon.

Happy Spring everyone! Enjoy the day! Find solace whenever you can! No worries, mate!
