You should have seen the one that got away???? ha ha...

Sad Good Bye's 
and a 
great fishing day.

I had to share these photos with you of our great fishing day.
I couldn't sleep the night before wondering if I had forgotten any thing.
Bait, fishing lines, hooks, Band aids encase some one hoked them selves.
Plus of course SNACKS.. like chocolate, honey biscuits, and peanut cookies.
We picked a good spot by the lake, and put out the rug for the girls or any one else that didn't want to fish. 
We had a very experienced old fisherman Percy that was helping out, giving tips to the younger bears, as well as myself, so they learnt a lot. Percy is the bear with the blue bow and Burt is the bear with the green overalls Plus Shirley who was in deep conversation with Boof.
Whoopy dooo.... We caught a whopper.. can you see his big head poking out of the water. There was much discussion in how to get him to Shaw.
The girls were scared, they said "he had a big mouth. Would he eat them?"   I ask you!!!!! Of course I told her we eat the fish..If we are lucky enough to land it.

With Percy's help we got him in the net. We were all so excited, we had not caught one so big before. We are going to have a big feast to night.
We just got him hauled in when the ducks came. I would have been mad as hops if they took the fish from our line.
We caught 3 other nice little fishies so the next thing was teaching the how to scale and gut the fish.... (Guess who ran away at the stage.) Girls????
We picked a nice big stone that was clean and the scales flew every where. Then the tummy came out.. Phewww....  Was I a happy camper when our bucket was nearly full.
We could not stop looking in that red bucket, just encase we were dreaming, we caught so much. What a great dinner we will have for our last meal together.
Because camp finishes and we all have to say good-bye for another year.
Before we left I found 2 mins. to be by myself and look at this beautiful spot, and think of all the wonderful times we had together.
Then we went back to camp and ate our fish and told stories around the camp fire under the old oak tree.
It's always hard to say good bye to Prudence, we had the best time and our bond of friendship grew even stronger. 

Bye every one, I will look forward to see you all next year.
All of the fisher bears, keep fishing and write to me about your catches.
Not the ones that got away.

Big hugs Wilbur.

This is for all my friends in Bloggerland, that read my story.

My thought for the day.
"If ants are so hard working,
why do the always turn up at Picnics."


  1. Hi Kay and Wilbur,

    Aren't you the clever fishermen - so glad that you were able to enjoy a wonderful fish dinner.
    It must be sad with camp finishing but know you must have lots of happy memories to go home with.
    happy Sunday

  2. Dearest Kay,
    Lovely story and very realistically photographed and told! You are doing a marvelous job at that.
    Sending you hugs for a happy Sunday.

  3. Hi Wilbur,

    We got home at dinnertime and I sure could have feasted on another fish dinner. WOW, that supper was so beary good. Nobeary cooks fish on an open campfire like you do.

    I am going to dream about camp tonight. I miss you so much.

    Prudence ♥

  4. Another great story, Wilbur! I would have loved to have fished with you. :-) It looks like such a nice day. It is so hard to say goodbye, but at least you have some wonderful memories of camp to take with you.

  5. Oh yeah, Wilbur and Prudence sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G...

  6. Great fishin Wilbur,
    It looks like you had a great last dinner at camp. Have a safe journey home.

  7. That was the best idea to end your wonderful camp time with a fishing day - what fun you have had! We had fun following your adventure. But we loved the pic of you having your own bearsonal moment most. Don't be sad, you're taking the most beautiful memories with you that will be always in your heart - and next year you're going to see all of them again. And best of all - you get home to give your Granny a big hug... that should be the perfect comfort... ;O)

  10. Ohhhhhh Kay, zit hier echt te genieten van dit mooie verhaal. In gedachten zie ik jou al slepen met alle beren op zoek naar een geschikte locatie om dit prachtige verhaal in elkaar te zetten.

    Zie ze toch allemaal naar de rode emmer kijken en genieten van de grote visvangst, haha, moet steeds glimlachen bij die mooie verhalen die jij allemaal verzint. Je kan er wel boeken over gaan schrijven en dan allemaal verkopen, succes verzekerd!!! Mijn complimenten!!!

    Wens je een mooie nieuwe week toe,

    Veel liefs,

  11. What a whopper you caught, Wilbur, and an excellent tall tale (or, is it a tall tail?)! We're glad to know you're home again, though - Granny needs you.
    Big hugs from Kayzy's Critters :0)

  12. Dear Wilbur,
    what a catch! :) don't be sad with camp finishing - it's the beginning of something new, some new fun and new joy.
    One thing that is just my motto - Memories cannot be bought :)
