Hunting and Gathering

Or fishing and harvesting...

When we moved back to the Island Chris decided that he needed something in his life that was equivalent to my knitting, a passion, this is what he settled on...



We live a block from the ocean and he is out on his boat every chance he gets. He likes to fish, so far just catch and release. The other night he brought a rock fish home for supper.



What made this supper so special is that none of our food came from a store. With the vegetable garden growing like mad and the fish that Chris had caught we were able to feed ourselves from the fruits of our labours. This was a first for us, what a great feeling.
