Tyrannosaurus rex 
I have not had a chance to do a lot of fishing in the last few weeks (this would explain the lack of posts lately) but the family and I have still had time to do a few fun things here and there.  For instance, today we took a day trip to the city (NYC, for those outside of the tri-state area) to visit The American Museum of Natural History.  It was the first trip for the girls and they enjoyed every minute of it.

It was a very busy day and the highlight of it was walking through dinosaur and extinct mammal halls on the fourth floor.  I could spend the entire day by myself and still be fascinated but it was very cool to see the amazement in the eyes and jaw dropping expressions on their faces.  It was a beautiful day outside and I would always love to be outdoors and maybe even fishing but it's virtually impossible to beat a day like today.

  1. Wonderful family stuff.
    Learning can be fun.

  2. Brk Trt...Yes, it's hard to beat time with the family. Having them learn something and make some great memories is a nice bonus.

    1. Do you think the brook trout was around when those big guys roamed.

    2. I'm pretty sure they didn't. I think that all members of the salmon family, including trout and char didn't show up until after the big guys left the scene. Too bad for them...I think they would have appreciated them as much as us.
