I am having my turkey tomorrow - today is for homework! It really doesn't feel like thanksgiving yet, but it is finally feeling like Fall, and I am really enjoying it. I was treated to a trip to Chase, where we watched the Salmon run at Adams River with the boy's family. It was a much-needed break and so good to spend time with my (other) family! we stayed at a resort that was gorgeous, the weather was perfect and fall-ish, and everyone had so much fun. The Salmon were interesting... I will show you some pictures, don't mind the dead fish .... haha! Here's what its all about, for those who don't know (like me before I went!):
"After fighting strong currents and rapids, the salmon are bruised and battered and their skin has changed to a deep red colour and their heads turn green. The salmon return to the same place where they began their life to spawn. The females lay around 40,000 eggs, the males develop humped backs and hooked snouts. They both guard the nest until their death and the cycle begins again. "
The resort where we stayed one luxurious night
(4 pillows for 1 person, white bedding and down duvet = my kind of sleeping arrangement!)
The traffic director at the entrance to the park - I thought it was cute!
All of the water just looked like this...
Some fish eggs nestled in the rocks
This guy was huge!
Uncles and nephews a-plenty!
Grandsons can never get enough of Grandpa!
He'd point and say "He's done" ... haha funny how easily kids get it sometimes
Me and the boy's feet...
