Father’s Day Fishing

I trust all the fathers had a great day.

Steven and I spent most of the day at the Victoria Fish and Game Protective Association property.

We had opportunities to shoot rifles, pistols, shotguns and Steven had a chance to fish in the pond. He didn’t catch a fish, however we saw four other fish caught while we were there.
