The view at Lake Karapiro

So today I decided to take a drive into the Waikato, famously known as the home of The Lord of The Rings in particular Hobbiton. This spot was about an hours drive from my house.

Armed with my fishing gear off I went. The sun today was beautiful, a pleasant 26c with little to know wind. Sitting by the lakes edge with my line in the water watching the trout chasing my lure was so tranquil, all my depressive thoughts went and I was able to sit there peacefully in the moment. I am truly privileged to live in a beautiful country.

Think I will have to get out fishing more.
