Catch of the Day

2013-09-09-mitch-puppy drumThe only thing Mitch loves to do at the beach is go fishing. One of the many things we both enjoy to eat is fish…preferably Puppy Drum.  Recently one of those non-fishy tasting fish have finally found Mitch’s bait and took it. Of course Shadow was excited!

Puppy Drums are the young to Red Drums with can grow to be about 50 lbs. Most of the puppy drum that are caught range from 18″-25″

Beach Finds

Sand Dollar

Sand Dollar

I found this sand dollar about 2 minutes into my walk one early morning. It measure about 3″ across. Since Mitch loves these it was a nice surprise to give him when I got back from my stroll.  What do you mean what was he doing when I was walking the beach? He was setting up his fishing poles for a full day of fishing.

The Legend of the Sand Dollar

There’s a lovely little legend
That I would like to tell,
Of the birth and death of Jesus
Found in this lowly shell.

If you examine closely
You’ll see that you find here,
Four nail holes and a fifth one
Made by a Roman’s spear.

On one side the Easter Lily,
Its center is the star,
That appeared unto the shepherds
And led them from afar.

The Christmas Poinsettia
Etched on the other side,
Reminds us of His birthday
Our happy Christmastide.

Now break the center open
And here you will release,
The five white doves awaiting
To spread Good Will and Peace.

This simple little symbol
Christ left for you and me,
To help us spread His Gospel
Through all Eternity

Starfish

Starfish

Mitch sets up about 3 to 4 fishing poles on the beach. Each one sets in a pole holder. He sits back to watch the tips. If they wiggle, then he got a bite. Though sometimes the waves can make the tip of the pole wiggle too. It can be tricky. Sometime he’ll take one of the fishing poles out and stand at the edge of the shoreline where the waves break. One day while he was doing that he found this starfish. It measures 7″ across. Neither of us know what kind of starfish it is. Maybe you know.

Granite

Granite

Mitch found this piece of granite on the ground while sitting on the steps of our deck at our camper site.  This is and unusual find since it it not the type of rock that would be found around here. This type of rock is pretty common for making tombstones. Hmm, I wonder just what’s buried under our 5th wheel camper.

High Steppin’

Flamingo and Boots

…more like steppin’ out to go dancing to show off her new green boots with the fur lining.

Just a little something for your entertainment.

Our vacation is over…we’re packing it up, and heading home for the winter.

Oh, and her name is Ferrari.

See you all very soon!…so be good.
