fishing the seas

Boy, would I love to show you some pictures from our fishing adventure today but alas, I left my camera at the beach house.

We left the marina at around 9am and fished around some of the local islands before taking a river sightseeing trip. We were supposed to fish in the river but it rained and we took shelter on one of the many bayou-ish boat houses moored to the bank. By the time the rain passed it was time to head in but my feelings were not hurt. I got to see one of the prettiest rivers I've ever seen. There were ospreys, long-tailed kites, turtles, cranes, and alligator garr...lots of stuff to look at in other words.

Today is our last day and we'll be headed home tomorrow so the feast is being prepared. Dear brother has dubbed it our Eat 'Til You Hurt farewell dinner. We have the two speckled sea trout and the flounder that E caught, some grouper and a ton of shrimp along with every leftover in the fridge: lasagna, chicken fettucini alfredo, meat loaf, black eyed peas, turnip greens, macaroni and cheese, hotdogs, corn, salad and chocolate cake. If we aren't hurting when we leave the table, it won't be for lack of tryin'.

Work on Monday....ugh!
