Fishing in Lock Lomond - Bella Vista - Arkansas

sunny 26 °C

Hum I wasn't feeling the hole shilling today so we decided to go for a kayak tour (crazy hey!!!)... I got rescued by the fact that renting a power fishing boat was cheaper than 2 kayaks... so off we went for our 2 hours fishing on the lake...

We could get this as we are temporary members of Bella Vista as Kieran sponsored us which basically means we can use all the local facilities for free which is just great, that is swimming pool, gym, classes, mini golf, library...

Teo nearly got a fish but we all had a try...
and we had some fun driving the boat....

One day in Fayetville

sunny 20 °C

Today we had lunch outside as the weather was so fine!!!

We then went fishing in the lake near where Kieran lives.... We had a giggle as we sent a few lines in the trees so here I was in my flipflops in the water recovering what I could ... Actually I got another 2 baits so obviously other people had the same misadventure that we did but they also did not have the super mum that Teo and Hayden have .... rock on mum!!!

Later we wanted to find a sport shop as Frank needed some trainers and we wanted to ahve a look for kids clothes... so we also found a couple of great shops which had everything you could wish for...

Arrival in Lovina

Traditional fishing village

sunny 28 °C

This is a little ideal bay with black sand… and a tiny little fishing community living around one single street…

Lots of homestays there and they all help each other and if they are full get you to the next one… We are staying in a room with a massive bed and a shower, AC and a European toilet… but no loo roll here as they use a shower hose.. kids actually love it somehow!!!

Yesterday when we arrived and after diner a fishing boat came back from fishing sardines and the kids had a great time seeing how they sort the fish out and it is a family affair … very nice.. They also have a pig on the beach .. and chickens … very very kind of rural and peaceful .. kids can go on the beach on their own while I sit at the terracee and chill out… pretty good….

We ate grilled fish from the same day catch .. lovely…

Lovina - Fishing Trip at Sunset

Fishing in a traditional boat with locals...

sunny 25 °C

On our return from the hot springs .. we went fishing on the traditional boats (with an engine I am afraid) and it was fantastic…

We saw the sunset on the boat (Wendy I have a picture for you)… and we all actually managed to fish our diner which was pretty good I thought…

The kids had a great laugh and the guys was cool … I told him off for polluting my fresh air with his cigarettes but he was cool .. I actually shared with him my annoyance at the amount of people who are trying to sell you things all the time and about the fact that even to go snorkelling we need to take a boat when the book told me otherwise… but he was nice and told me that he would lend us a snorkel (oh yes I forgot to mention that Hayden lost his before we left Sanur) and also show us where to snorkel from the shore … cool we willl see tomorrow and let you know.

Anyways we had the fish for diner in a soup and it was great!!!

Farewell and some more tomorrow if I manage….
