A word from Cathy
Barry and I have been home for a month, a very long time in between trips for us. As much as we wanted the month to linger and go slow, it has somehow zipped past us and we'll soon be on the road again - to Argentina next week for the season's opening. But back here at home a lot has been happening. Simon Gawesworth was here for a spey clinic on the Susquehanna River. We were so lucky with the weather. It was a beautiful two days and the foliage and the river was spectacular.
Everyone commented on our local landmark, the Savage barn, which was also spectacular in barn red.
The following week we enjoyed the company of Harry Schoel and Theo Bakelaar from Holland for a few days. Theo, in his red beret, made an interesting photo subject. They all stayed at The Lodge at Raven Creek, which at one time was our fly shop and is now an event facility and B&B full of country charm, comfort, and terrific hosts — Brooke, who works for us, and her husband, Corey.
A quick night off to enjoy fun and games at the annual community Halloween Party and a chance to take our grandsons fishing at the Benton Dam. It's been a great month and after Argentina next week, we'll slide right into the Christmas season. Just think, winter will go fast and we'll soon be writing about the opening of our trout season here at home (or at least we hope so!).
