This was Matt's second summer weekend in Blacksburg and it was a blast!
We kicked off the weekend with a yummy lunch at Gillie's and met friends for drinks and grub at the New Orleans style Boudreux roof top patio in the evening. I also had a wildlife ward page to attend to 2 baby starlings in great healht, albeit hungry. A friend of mine wa able t care for them and get them to rehaber the next day.
Saturday was a long day of errands. After some thunderstorms, we hit the community fish fry! All you can eat fish, fries, slaw, and homemade deserts for $7! Next stop the Sun Music Hall in Floyd for Contra Dancing! I had never been contradancing before, but I had a blast spinning, stomping and smiling! I cannot wait to do it again in the fall!
Sunday we gathered our fishing gear and bathing suits and headed to Gatewood Park and rented boats o their lake. My boat did not catch any fish (Matt must havebad karma) but the other boat of fisherman was quite successful with 6 catches, including catfish, sunnies, and tbd.
After some great water and sun time, we headed back tired. We got a wee lost in Pulaski, and had an interesting incident while asking for directions.
All in all a great weekend in the New River Valley.
