Well, this is sure a pleasant surprise and hopefully there will be some more images posted in this challenge.

I just returned from a fishing trip with a few friends and now packing the camper for a weeks vacation in Killarney Provincial Park. We are packing the canoe, rods, reels for some downtime in the wilderness.

Any pictures of fishing, boating, camping, relaxing, will work with the challenge. It's my first time, so if it's too wide open please let me know.:dunno

The contest will run until the end of day Tuesday July 5th - 9 PM EST and I should have winner and runners up announced on Sunday or Monday.

    Is it bending the rules too far to suggest the deadline be extended through the 4th of July weekend? Some people might just be relaxing on the water then, and it would be nice to catch those entries!

    You may want to give a specific time; there are global participants. When does your day end?

    I'm not the fishing type, but did spend some good relaxation time in Hawai'i in June. Some favorites:

    Froch,
    If I could vote on this round your dad's entry would have my vote--What a special shot.

    Divemedic4---welcome to dgrin! What a wonderful shot for your first post. Love the silhouette, the blowing hair, the sky's color--just relaxed looking at the shot.

    Rainbow:) I cracked up when I saw your PJ inspired shots--YES!!!

    I'm enjoying this round as I need some relaxation big time.

    I've got a couple.

    Stepladders...cheaper than boats.
    1246666742_coXuQ-M.jpg

    And they fit in your garage, you don't have to pay to moor them.
    852880738_mTqeR-M.jpg

    This one is for show only. I love this shot that my wife took, it looks like every eye is on her. I call it "This is how the fishing was yesterday...while you were at work". Not a hatchery either, it's a real river.
