Vacation is Over...
The beach! That's been the cry for the last week as we hit the water with fishing rods, floats and sand toys to have a great time with family and friends. This is what the end of vacation looks like on a Sunday evening from the back seat of beach buggy we rented.
Usually I am recharged by vacation and I have on my mind new things and new purposes and a fresh enthusiasm for work and home that the time off gave me and I am ready to get back to the world. I feel different this time. I feel recharged but maybe it's is a change with my age as I look forward to spending more time like this with friends and family.
I'll try to list who was with me and Cathy at the beach with us this week. Our kids, Morgan and wife Ali, Mary and husband Miguel, Rose and husband Juan and the grand kids, who stayed most of the week, Coraline and Warren, Cathy's brothers and sister Matt, John wife Mari, brother Jim and daughters Samantha and Chandler, sister Margaret and daughters Grayson and Addison, Cathy's parents Bill and Geneva, Don Miguel and wife Alejandra and daughters Crystal, Selena and Ashley, friends Suzi and Charlie who stayed all week, friends Lupe and Norma Aunt Shelia and Uncle Art and last but not least who stayed most of the week Cathy's Cousin Michael and kids Everret abd Stella. I think that's everyone. See all ya'll next year.

The Great Fish Taco Massacre...
Everybody has brought food. Some shop for general supplies, Suzi cooked casseroles and quiches, Stella brought powdered donuts and last night John brought a bunch of trout and redfish he previously caught and we staged the big fish taco massacre. Here's some scenes.
The food picture.
Wind is bad today so fishing might be a wash. We will see.
At this point in my life I am never ashamed about what I catch. I am always glad to catch something. The bait this little black tip shark ate was bigger than he is.
Coraline does the "R" part of CPR. Catch, photo, release.
Matt catches a nice shark this morning but poor old shark dies because he is hooked to deep for a clean release. He's a legal catch. Much longer that the 24" the book says. He's been turned into fillets for the grill.
Michael caught a small shark about like I was catching yesterday.
Everett gives an assist on a gafftop sail catfish I hooked. I also had a whiting and a very small bonnet head shark.

Warren checks the bait bucket. "Anybody in there?"
A Secret Remote Beach...
Camp Catfish is in session and people are starting to arrive from far and wide. Fishing is good so far.
Rose Cathy, Margaret, Grayson and Addison get wet.
Coraline and Warren like the water.
I caught three sharks, a lady fish, a hardhead and a gafftop
Here is the biggest black tip shark. The surf is full of these ankle biters. Matt kept a 17 inch speck and a nice whiting and several throw back specks and a small bonnet heard shark. Michael caught several small specks. Fishing looks to be good for the week.
