Gale woke up at 6:30 am and said, “We’re going fishing!” The morning was sunny and warm with a slight southwesterly breeze. We did hook a 5-pound king salmon which Maureen reeled in. Kelle had mentioned that he would like to go to a matinee to see the movie, District 9, that was opening today, so we were back at our anchorage and in the dinghy headed for shore by 1:15 pm. We jumped in Kelle’s car to find the theater where we had our “lunch” of popcorn, M&M’s and pop! After the movie, Gale dropped Kelle and Maureen off at the Festival Park grounds before 5 pm because we knew there was no entrance fee being charged between the hours of 4:00 and 5:30 for the Irish Fest. Gale drove back to the anchorage to bring Blue Heron over to the Discovery Center dock located next to Festival Park. By the time Gale had moved the boat, Kelle had already had enough of the Irish Fest so he went back to the boat while Gale joined Maureen in the park until after dark. At 9 pm, all of us walked over to the Discovery Center’s lakefront where they were showing a free movie, Pulp Fiction. We checked out the crowd, stayed for a little while and walked back to the boat for the night where we listened to the Irish music as we drifted off to sleep.
