A day on the River

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

For the past 35 years Willie and Loretha Jackson have traveled the country fishing everywhere they went. The couple live in Chicago but came all the way out to Aurora to fish along the Fox River on a beautiful late fall day. "I could just sit here and listen to the river and be happy," Jackson said, "In the city there is always something going on, it's nice to just get away."
