This morning one of our guests went out  for early morning walk and captured this picture of the mill pond in Rural.  Troy is a fly fishing guide (an independent contractor) recommended by Orvis, and beside the gorgeous colors saw some good sized trout in the Crystal River. He had breakfast today with other guests who came here from Florida specifically to fly fish!   They caught several trout on their first day out.  Don’t you suppose they all enjoyed sharing fish stories?!  After breakfast Troy gave them some pointers as they set out in the Crystal River this morning. With the weather about perfect – sunny skies and colorful foliage it’s made for a great vacation for them. Thanks, Troy, for sharing this lovely photo.

The Rural Mill Pond is just a block from the inn.
