# 100 Kids!

I spent last weekend with a bunch of 4-H kids teaching about camera buttons!

This gecko was a hit and they turned him into a star! 

Yea even us big kids got in on the act! after all we do love photography! It is great to work with kids who are truly interested in learning!

# 99 Fruit!

Persistence does pay off! I am pleased to say that this week I got the first few copies of the "Kayak Book". This has been a two year time investment for me,starting from the early days when I decided to write this book. One year + to get the book written and almost a full year to find a publisher, work through the set up and see the book printed. I could not be happier with the way it turned out.
Now the marketing begins.
The publisher, Texas Fish and Game magazine has books already in Academy stores and this will be the new edition. We will also have the book in Fishing Tackle Unlimited as well as kayak distributors like Austin Canoe and Kayak (ACK).
The fruit of this labor looks pretty sweet!
I have learned a lot, and also forged some great new friendships.
The book is available online at

Psalm 103:21-22 (NASB)

Bless the Lord, all you His hosts,

You who serve Him, doing His will.
Bless the Lordall you works of His,
In all places of His dominion;
Bless the Lord, O my soul!

# 98 Summer Shift

So here it is July 2015. I used this picture from Utah last year to remind me what it is to be cold! The second book I wrote "101 Freshwater Kayak Launching Points" is due to be in stores this month. Texas Fish and Game magazine did a nice write up in the July issue. If you are in Texas and do not get the mag now, pick up a copy at Academy.
 I have been full speed ahead every weekend for the past 2 months gathering information on my latest book writing venture. I have enjoyed the research process of  gathering this information, but my blogging has suffered! I do plan to start back with the "Where In Houston" blog soon and convert it to a Where TO FISH in Houston blog!
Fishing is a great activity for all members of the family, and the Houston area has plenty of neat spots to spend a little while away from the hustle of the city life.
I do hope you will continue to enjoy the posts!

Psalm 91

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”
