Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas
The OFM is really bad about second guessing his decisions. This morning he was worried that he had moved this far south sooner than needed. He calls it “learning from his mistakes”. I call it flaky. Anyway he spent over an hour checking the weather back toward the north. As you know by now he regards 55F as a minimum temperature for reasonable humans for the night. From the looks of the weather to the north we did the right move. He would not be happy stranded inside the Castle with the miserable cold temps in the forties. Basically he is a wimp about cold.
At least he is not too lazy when things need to be done. The laundry was done this morning and then the stove/oven was cleaned. The rest of the kitchen was wiped down and is ready for cooking some fresh fish if he ever catches any to cook.
The evening adventure was down at the harbor pier. The Teams stopped in to see what was going on and found “Pop”. He is the Chinese gentleman that we have fished with several times. Pop had had four large trout hit his lure without getting a good hook set. The fifth one he managed to land but it was smaller than the others he said. Here is his keeper trout in the ice chest.
About a third of the way out the pier and in the water was a red pole attached to something. It was just bobbing up and down out there. We all wondered what it had on the other end.
The sun was very bright this evening and in hopes of a great sunset picture the camera and the OFM stood out on the pier in the cold waiting for the fantastic sunset that was coming. Well it didn’t and all they got was cold.
However, visiting with Pop is always a good way of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
