A Fresh Catch via CameraBag

June 11th, 2011

We spent our Saturday dedicated to one small goal: to catch a fish!   When you have little ones, and it’s their first fishing experience, you want to guarantee a result.  We’re so lucky, there is a place close by where you can go fishing, where the trout are plentiful, and they clean the fish for you once they’re caught.  Hagemann Ranch is a trout farm on the way to Bodega Bay, no fishing license is required, and they also supply the bait and poles if ya need ‘em! 

Here’s a glimpse through the lens of my recently discovered iPhone app called CameraBag.  I discovered it a few weeks ago and I’ve been having so much fun with it!  CameraBag gives you a variety of different filters, ranging from ‘Italiano’ to ‘Instant’ (like a Polaroid) to ‘1974’.   Here’s a look at our family friendly adventure through the lens of these CameraBag filters.

Walk the dock at Hagemann’s and you’re guaranteed a good time, simply bring or rent bait and poles.  This pond is filled with rainbow trout just waiting to be caught.

Outdoor Bliss

June 10th, 2011

The weather has been so amazing the last few days, so we’re definitely planning on a relaxing weekend.  No obligations, no schedules, no projects, just a weekend of outdoor bliss.  We’ll be taking full advantage of summer and packing up some gourmet goodies in our picnic basket, off in search of adventure. 

We haven’t decided where we will go yet, maybe Sonoma, perhaps Healdsburg, maybe even the beach, who knows, but our destination will surely be a place where we can lounge for hours and watch the kiddies play as the sun sets on a lazy evening. 

We’ll be looking for something that feels like these images . . .
