jealousy would be wrong...
but just to think my duck hunting guys get to see this
~ I am a little envious ~
the above picture was the first view my eyes rested upon
when we arrived at the duck blind last Friday morning
every second the view was changing
because of the fog on the river
The boys had been wanting me to go for quite some time.
I agreed, but almost backed out.
45 degrees & 4:30 a.m. - not my favs
We were in Louisiana at our son's home for Thanksgiving.
I heard the oldest & youngest along with their dad
getting suited up in the living room.
Putting on their layers of clothing while dad broke
the news "mom just don't think she can do it".
In a split second,
I had a change of mind ~ just like I'm prone to do.
But, I must say when I loaded in the boat, with help,
at the launch on the Red River,
I wished my toes & my nerves had still been resting
under the warm covers back at the house.
IT WAS SOOOO FOGGY!!!
I covered my stocking cap head with a blanket
and never peeked until we pulled into the duck blind.
~Words I could hear through the layers wrapping my head~
Dad, I can't see the tree line.
you are on the other side of the buoy where the rocks are
turn the light off I can't see anything with it on
what was that?
there should be another marker - I don't see it.
oh my, there's the port - almost turned in
I had a wonderful prayer time on the 15 minute boat ride.
I posted the pictures in order of the morning events.
Fog would thin and then thicken.
The ducks could not see where to fly into.
So needless to say - no ducks, just decoys.
The sun had a really hard time burning through.
A breeze started blowing and blew the fog out.
Or at least that's what the guys said.
I enjoyed every minute ~ even savored my morning coffee.
Just don't think I'm cut out for riding the river.
The oldest son had prepared me for his change in appearance
before we arrived last week.
He had started growing his duck hunting beard back in September.
The shaving date is set for February!
The youngest tried to grow one for the week. :))
~the duck hunting make-up is lacking alot
I didn't even give it a try.
Such beautiful pictures painted
just for our eyes to behold and enjoy.
So glad I did not miss it!
Dad enjoying his time off and time spent with his boys.
The ride home!
