Of course it wasn't all flyfishing. I took the art journal I'm doing on joy and a small box of supplies - Derwent Inktense bars, black and white acrylic, a couple of inkpads and a few stencils and stamps.
The chronic fatigue had flared up badly before the hols so I wasn't up to that much fishing at the beginning of the holiday. Yes, this meant there was more time for art journaling. There's always good to be found in bad situations!
Here's my page for today:
Its impossible to have joy without love. If you love, you're going to have joy.
Jesus said: "These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be full." Jn 15:11. Jesus made this statement in the middle of talking about love: "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you; abide in my love." v 9 and "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you." v 12
So we need love to have joy.
I think being beside the river influenced this page so it came out all flowy in springlike colours.
Highland air is definitely very therapeutic because I felt so much better after a few days of resting up together with some gentle walking and fishing. I really do fish, here's a picture of me in all the gear, ok its not a fashion parade :)

And of course we just had to do a selfie:
It was a great hols and a good time to be doing my journal on joy!
