Last week, my students brought me a cat. They have brought me everything from turtles to squirrels to raccoons… I guess a cat just fits into the mix!

It’s been so pretty outside.  It’s fall and one of my favorite times of the year!  I wanted to go kayaking but my husband wanted to go fishing so we compromised.  We went to Dog River where he could fish and I could kayak!

Dog River is a watershed that drains more than 90 square miles. It is a tidal estuary on the north side of the Gulf of Mexico. It is a brackish river which means it has a mixture of both fresh and saltwater. Since the water is brackish, there are both fresh and salt water fish. You can catch just about anything – bass, brim, mullet, redfish, croakers, speckled trout, flounder or the occational shark. The water is pretty shallow and is effected by the tides. We put in by Dog River Bridge so we could park by a restaurant.

We didn’t have much luck with the fish but we did enjoy a beautiful day!
