Yesterday afternoon, after a great morning with our church family, we hopped in our boat and took off down the Bay.

We turned up the creek and sailed over to our friend Connie’s home.  A Mama Swan and her babies were there to greet us.

Connie is perhaps one of the most gracious and generous people that I will ever know.  She is the main reason that we have our lovely boat and she added to our water adventures yesterday, when she promised to show us how to fish for Snapper.  In a fun turn of events, our friend Katie happened to be at her house, so we insisted that she join us for a fun ride in Connie’s boat.

She did, because she’s a trooper.

Connie took us over to a little beach in Eastport.

She taught us how to drag for bait fish.  It was really cool.  Because apparently, when we are walking around in the Bay like it’s nothing, there are hundreds of little fish and crabs just swimming around under our feet.  Hence the reason for the cool socks that our family is wearing.

After getting  nice little bucket of bait, we sailed back to Connie’s dock where she picked up Pastor Charley and Jan to take them out for a boat ride while they are here.

 After they left, we sat down and got to work.

And it was delightful.  Because we went from a family who wishes that they could fish to a family that catches fish, while sitting on the dock of a creek by the Bay.

It was a beautiful and peaceful afternoon.

And little by little, everyone caught fish.

I can’t say enough how much we are loving this summer.  With one more week before school starts, we are making the most of making the most of it.  A huge thanks to Miss Connie for adding to our adventures and for teaching us something new!
