Is there anything as wonderful as a stroll on the beach early in the morning before it gets clogged up with people? This is the beach at our hotel in Redington Beach, FL. Refreshing and rejuvinating.
There were two reasons for this trip: fishing for John and visiting family for me. John was disappointed that he didn't catch the big fish he planned for, but spending a couple of days out on the water with fellow fishermen and catching smaller fish is still great fun.
Here is John, the great fish hunter:
Here is one unique thing he caught:
Can't tell what it is? It is a little otter who grabbed the hook, swam away and spit it out. It is definitely the first time (and surely the last) otter John has caught. He did "catch" a good story though.
What did I catch? I scored this large bucket full of good size clock innards for some assemblage work we plan to do.
