Gone Fishin'-update

\o/............................................\o/ !
Gone Fishing!
Pictures will follow!

And here they are!
I do love to fish-yes, even if I don't catch a thing.
Today we were blessed to catch a few fish and a few trees. :)
But only one tree got to keep my bobber because I went hunting in the bushes for the last one.

Below is the gravel pit--it is peaceful, out in the middle of nowhere, and only has tree potties
but that's o.k.
I went with Linda-my former pastors wife. We are buds and enjoy our fishing. She also enjoys the beach--she was my companion on my little escape to the beach the other day.

She caught the first fish---she usually does.
And then I caught one - she took a picture of me kissing it-don't know what happened to that picture. Funny, she told me to kiss mine for the camera--but she didn't kiss hers. Hmmmm :)

The next is the second fish I caught. Second, and last. :(
But, we still had fun and we set them free so that meant we had no cleaning to do!

The next Linda caught. It is an alligator gar. I tried to get a close up of it's teeth but it would not hold still. Imagine has a hook going through it's mouth and it was not concerned about my little ole camera. They have a pretty nasty set of sharp teeth.
He ended up getting to keep his life and the hook-we weren't putting our hands near them.
Maybe he'll get it out on his own.

The last is not a picture from today but from our trip over to Mississippi.
Many huge old trees were destroyed during the storm Katrina.
The road we were on was directly on the water and the homes along this road were old elegant homes that will never be able to be replaced.
Instead of cutting down all the trees an artist took the time to turn some of them into art.
In the bottom picture you can clearly see the bird, a dolphin and a fish. On the other side were more animals.
Thought you might enjoy this. See how God can bring beauty after a storm?

We have these same fish species here. The first one looks like what we call a rock bass. The second looks like a large mouth bass. I'm so glad you took along the camera and got photos. I love to fish and truly enjoyed coming along with you on your trip.

Thanks also for commenting on my post about Brandon's autism. I'm glad to know that mother's have a say about the vaccinations that their children get. I appreciate you sharing that knowledge.

Keeping you in my prayers.

So who cleans the fish? I loved fishing as a child and haven't done anything serious in years. The last time I went was deep sea fishing about 9 years ago and the only thing I caught was sea sickness.

Looks like a great time! I used to go fishing with my dad when I was a kid, so this brought back happy memories :)
