Yesterday was such a good day. It was warm and sunny. We spent almost the whole day out on the lake, fishing and getting sunburnt. Within the first half hour of having a line in the water we caught a really good eating size fish. I couldn’t believe how quickly we had caught a fish. Well, we, Felix caught it technically, he was holding the rod, but I was rowing us. We rowed around for another two or more hours after that and had no more luck, so we stopped for a rest and a swim.
We pulled up to some big rocks where the water was deep and there was no mud or reeds. I can’t believe this place. In the Sun and warmth we have been rowing around on an absolutely beautiful lake only seeing a few other people from a distance, we have caught a fish for lunch, and we have lain sleepily on the hot rocks in the Sun after a swim. I’m not used to being so happy and content. I don’t have the words to describe how much I really enjoyed yesterday. If I had to complain I’d have no problem writing.
Very sadly the fish died in the bucket before we could kill it. We felt so terrible for letting it die like that. Felix taught me how to clean and scale a fish, I didn’t find it so pleasant at first but when I got used to it, it was fine. A good experience. We cooked the fish and ate it for dinner with chips and a salad.
Today we are going to go for a walk in the forest, it’s a bit cold and grey to go swimming today - but I might still go...the water won't be any colder and it makes me feel so good. Sadly tonight we are going to go back into Oslo, Felix has a school friend arriving tonight and he wants to see her before she heads off again in a few days. But hopefully we can come back again in a few days.
