Vacation at the Coast

Henry and mine, (I’m his wife), favorite place to go is the coast for our vacation, which we sorely do not get to go enough.

This past year we went on my birthday and had a wonderful time!

We caught gafftops, flounder, piggy perch, trout, reds, a shark; you name it we may have caught it, although, this time we did not get a stingray.


Henry loves to castnet at the coast, I think it’s one of his most relaxing things while there:

This trip he got in some kayaking too:

He even caught a little shark just off land!

I caught a FlounderĀ (and no I did not get a sunburn this pic is deceiving; I hid under the canopy the entire trip!):

And this is ONE of Henry’s Gafftopsail Catfish (yeah just one we ALL caught several):

And finally on the trip home, everyone had to check out one of the alligators fishing at the boat dock, just one last time:
