Went Fishing...

Well, not exactly...

Being Wednesday, I had the kids and I took them down to feed the fish at one of the lakes. Someone had told me about this a few days ago and said, "go to 'such and such' dock and bring the kids with you. They'll love to feed the fish!"

At the time, I thought, "that sounds cool. We'll probably get a handful of fish food and throw them in the water and see an occasional fish pop his or her little head up and eat it." Boy, was I wrong!

First off, there was thousands of fish the side of small boats sitting around waiting to be fed and man, they were agressive! I kept holding on to my children because I thought that if they accidently fell in, the fish would eat them!

Here they are at the dock, about to feed the fish:

Here's a close up of the little guy feed the fish. I think I took the picture just in case he fell in and was eaten, I would at least have a picture of his last moments. I'm telling you, these fish were mean! There were some ducks nearby who were trying to grab a little grub as well, but the fish kept smaking them upside the head!

Here's the girlie, being all girlie like while feeding the fish:

Overall, it was a lot of fun but next time I think I'll bring rope to tie around their waists.

Yowsa, they are big fish--is this a fish farm? I don't know my fish, obviously. Great pictures.

WOW, now that is really weird! Great pictures.

Oh, there's a place in Myrtle Beach, SC where they've got a stocked pond in the middle of a lifestyle mall. And the fish are well fed and act JUST LIKE THAT. It's really, really creepy.

I bet they had fun!

Actonbell: No, it wasn't a fish farm. It's just a boat dock where the boats owners come and buy their supplies but I guess the fish got it all figured out and wait around for food.

Myutopia: It was kind of scary... I had never seen fish act like that!

dorky dad: Creepy is a good word for it. It gave one of the kids a scare because they hadn't noticed the fish until he was right over them and they started splashing about...

hmbt: They loved it! I ended up buy a second round of fish food...

Holy crap, that's a lot of fish. I agree. Creepy.

Piranas have nothing on those big mouths, except well maybe teeth. Cool pictures though.

Now to the point - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Hope you're enjoying it and best to you in the year ahead.

Happy Birthday Pavel!!!

Pavel said...

Susan: There were so many that I probably could walk on them!

Diesel: The kids kept asking me to count them and see how many there were...

G: You remembered! Thank you so much!

Neva: I was told they're carp, though I wouldn't know the difference between carp and, say, a pirahna... Well, maybe. (smile)

Thanks for the Birthday wishes! I did have a good time and I'll post about it real soon...

Joel: Thanks so much, Joel! I really appreciate it!
