The Curious Adventures of Kirk Lombard: Episode 4

When we’re children, everything around us is a source of wonder. Our days are full of magic and discovery. Nothing is dull and everything seems new. But then we settle into routine. How can we rediscover our natural curiosity? The answers are still out there. The Earth is still full of magic and secrets.

Oh majestic salmon! Giver of life! Provider of nutrients! Tough to snag if you’re just on a casual afternoon river outing! After their salmon fishing attempts fail, Kirk and Mikey must use all their foraging powers. Will they find happiness and dinner at the same time? Will they be able to clean the clam mud off their boots? Will Kirk treat us to another harmonica solo? A most curious adventure, indeed.
