We spent this weekend with our friends Billi and Brendan in Olympia, WA. A river borders their property, so they built a campsite on along the river's bank. It's pretty amazing. We slept there our first night, then spent a lazy day doing some hiking and birding in the area. On Sunday, Kelly and I got our first tastes of archery. They have a target set up in their back yard and we got to try both their recurved and compound bows. It was great fun, and although I still have a lot to learn, I did actually hit the target a few times!
Is it Kelly. . . or Legolas?
If you click on this picture to blow it up, you can see the arrow right through the deer's heart! Kelly hit the bullseye!
Okay, so my technique isn't the best yet, but hey! I'm having fun!
