This was the view from my perch. Once we located the shallow bays we wanted to fish, Chris skillfully positioned us on the north end and we drifted with the wind while casting. Everyone on board was successful and we brought home some nice fresh Red fish and Speckled trout fillets. My casting arm is sore, and my body is thankful to be seated in a soft office chair, but I am still savoring the experience of yesterday. Many thanks to all who participated in my birthday weekend, and all who came by to say "Howdy" on the blog. Resting on Sunday. That's what it's for and I intend to take full advantage. I was brought back to reality when the little girls (pre-school to early elementary) from across the street (who come by every afternoon for a brief visit) stopped by and wished me happy birthday. The eldest asked how old I was and when I told her sixty one, her mouth fell open, her eyes widened, and she exclaimed, "No way". It was as though she was looking at a living fossil. I can remember when forty looked old.
