Pescando en el Mar Caribe

28 Mar

This morning I got an early phone call from Marvin, our friend and carpenter.  He wanted to know if I wanted to go fishing.  Since he had finished building his new boat I said sure.

The sky was gray and overcast and it had been raining this morning, but throwing caution out the door I thought I would give it a try.  Well, it did wait until we were way off shore before it started raining and it rained pretty much the whole time.  With only a t-shirt to keep me dry I am sure you know what happened.

Here is Marvin (sitting on the front of his boat he built) before it really started raining.  You can see it off to the right coming in.


This is looking back at our beach from off shore.

catch of the day

And this is part of the fruits of labor, a small tuna which will be consumed tonight!  Within a hour we (they) caught 2 mackerels, a Tuna and a fish I had not seen before.  Next time when (if) I go out again, the sun will be shinning and the sea calmer.  No fun freezing in the rain!


Pura Vida…………..

    Great fish story! Despite the stormy weather, you persevered and caught dinner. Good for you. May your next trip be on a pleasant, sunny day.
