Fishing In Fosdick Lake While Hunting Endorphins With A White Swan
Thursday started out with a bout of pool based aerobic stimulation and its resultant endorphins.
The noon time frame had me getting myself some more endorphins via aerobic stimulation acquired via fast walking around Fosdick Lake in Oakland Lake Park.
The fisherman you see in the picture perplexed me. Did he gain greater fish access by putting on a pair of hip boots and wading out 3 feet from shore?
And why do people bother trying to catch fish in Fosdick Lake, what with all the warning signs letting you know you don't want to be eating fish you catch in this lake?
The Fosdick Swan was still in residence, at the same location I saw the Fosdick Swans days ago. Today the Fosdick Swan seemed to have lost his duck followers, replaced by a flock of doves. Along with the little bird, you see sitting next to the Fosdick Swan, who seems to have adopted the Fosdick Swan as a parental figure.
The Fosdick Swan has some kind benefactors, well at least one. I watched a lady scatter food on the ground near the White Swan, after which the White Swan awkwardly waddled to the food source to do some eating.
Swans look very graceful whilst floating on water. On ground swans do not look so graceful.
I did not think rain was in the forecast for the noon time frame today. However, some precipitation precipitated whilst I was doing my fast walking. The precipitation precipitating felt real good, a nice antidote to the oppressive humidity.
