Watching a Mink Fishing

We had a great day at the coast yesterday gathering wild foods, identifying plants and tracking on sandy beach at low tide. We covered the basics of pattern and clear-print tracking, then experimented with pressure releases and tracking games for several hours before our beach was retaken by the sea as the tide came in.

Mink fishing in Rust Pond

This morning I sat and watched a mink as he fished along the rocks near the pond. I saw him catch 3 fish before he moved on down the bank. Next week will be busy with making wooden longbows and continuing our bushcraft curriculum, but on this perfect fall Saturday there’s plenty of time to sit quietly and observe the natural world.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
