Family Comes to Visit
Roy had been suffering from the “mange” for a while. He was cursed by having Craft fur tail and maine that make perfect Redfish and Snook flies. We kept the parts of his hide that make good tying material and recycled the rest. Gabe had a lot of fun with this one! After nap we went to the library and read books.
When Meredith got home from work Gabe told her he took all the "snow" out of Roy!
Scalloping in Homosassa
Saturday morning Gabe and I got up first and he was in the pool within ten minutes. Lorren couldn’t sleep in with Gabe giggling outside. Soon she was up and her and Gabe played with the mask and snorkel until the rest of the crew was up.
We got out on the water early hunting for scallops. Gabe traded off between us riding around on our backs as we snorkeled looking for the tasty little shell fish. When we spotted one we would dive down and grab it. As we got back to the top Gabe would quickly swim to get back on our backs.
Our day was cut short by a rock that collided with the prop. on Brian's boat. The river certainly lived up to it’s reputation of being tough on lower units this weekend! Although we only got about a gallon of scallops; our friends showed up with about ten gallons more. Thanks Willy, Alyssa & Lorren!
Sunday morning we ate scallop ceviche and eggs for breakfast. We straightened up the house and loaded the boat back on the trailer. We didn’t actually do any fishing over the weekend but we definitely enjoyed Nikki's family's river house and can’t wait to head up there again to cash in on their great red fishery. Hopefully, prior to the close of scallop season.
We will have a "vacation rentals" section of the web site coming soon so others can take advantage of the great locations we love also.
See you soon!
