The morning pancake breakfast was going along smoothly. The OFM was sitting at the table with the window blinds pulled up enjoying the sun waking up the neighborhood. It was so nice he even took a picture of it while he was eating.
Where as yesterday was a bikini day, this morning was cool enough that coats and other warm clothing was required. This workman, for example, was in a tee shirt and shorts while working on the gazebo yesterday. Definitely not this morning.
Naturally with the north wind bringing in the cool air, it blew a lot of the water from the bay back into the Gulf of Mexico. That made for some really shallow spots where we normally do some fish catching. All that sand you see is normally under water.
Late in the afternoon Sierra claimed the temperature had warmed up a good bit.
And it apparently did. The red/white Top Dog Jr lure we found yesterday proved its worth with a large speckled trout this afternoon. It was a surprise to catch a trout on a topwater lure when it was not warm out but we landed the fish and measured it at a bit over 17“ and let it go back to make babies this spring. Naturally the camera was back there in Sierra.
We did get a small part of the Castle exterior washed when the temps were moderately warm. There is still a lot of trailer to bathe yet. Washing RVs while the air is chilly is not a great way of trying to have tooooo much fun.
