First day of fishing, JB caught a nice Jack at the start of the summer of the big spill, hoping the slick doesn’t reach here.
In Florida visiting me mammy in Naples. I try to start each day with a six- mile beach walk from the pier south to the Gordon River. Today I brought my cell phone and took some pictures. If this is destined to be the summer of oil on the beach, here’s what it looked like before the slick arrived.
7:30 am: setting out
Two miles south of the pier
A one-clawed crab
Turtle nest about to hatch
Dolphins playing in the wake of a boat entering the gulf from the Gordon River.
Birds on the hoof
And on the wing
A pair of snook patrolling the beach.
Sorry it’s a bit of a botch but it’s time to get back outside and play.
