2016 Trout & Berry Days in Paradise ... it was a blast, as expected. At right you can see Debbie, my brother Scott, and our friend Bruce Nelson; we had just finished eating our meal.
There was quite a crowd there this year. We got there early, but even so had to stand in line for a while. The meal was grilled trout, baked potato, corn-on-the-cob, a dinner roll, a small salad, and all the trimmings. Dessert was a custard topped with either raspberries or blackberries. It was delicious!
Even better than the food, though, was seeing our friends and neighbors there. I lost track of all the friendly greetings, waves, and conversations – dozens, certainly. It's a small town America event at its finest. I don't ever want to miss one of these!
