The fishing trip that wasn’t

We started this morning with the plan of driving about 45 minutes up the coast to go on a 1/2 day deep sea fishing trip….I’ve never been before, and I almost changed my mind and decided not to go…but I decided it would be a fun new adventure. When we got there at 8:15 this morning…the trip was set for 8:30 – we saw quickly that the boat looked really full and we were informed that unfortunately, the boat was already full – even though we had made reservations…it reminded me of the Seinfeld episode when the rental car that Jerry had reserved was not available…do you remember that episode- it was so funny – “I don’t think you understand what a reservation is”…if you remember that episode of, that is a really funny line…I wasn’t exactly laughing this morning…but oh well- they did give us free tickets to go tomorrow.

Breakfast was a quick bowl of Special K and coffee and we ran out the door…after our fishing trip fell through…we came back to the condo and hung out by the beach…we had a great set-up – we got a huge beach umbrella yesterday and we had our i-pod connected to our little cooler so we stayed there for hours.

Lunch was a quick and yummy sandwich of ham, turkey, tomato and avocado on double fiber bread with some sun chips and a pickle.


Then, we headed back out to the beach. Emma Kate and I had the same “hat and sunglasses”  look going on. (And thanks for all the sweet comments about Emma Kate- she is definitely a doll and I love her like crazy).


And Emma Kate spent a little time reading…


Then, after many hours outside, and about a 30-minute walk on the beach, we headed in to get cleaned up and we took a little nap…such a nice afternoon.

Dinner was at a Calabash Seafood restaurant…buffet style…I tried to have a little of all the things I love without going overboard. I started with a crab cake, a couple of fried scallops, a fried shrimp, boiled shrimp, some bourbon salmon, and some crab legs…and a salad.


After that, I had one more plate of crab legs and then a small bowl of ice cream with caramel and chocolate sauce and two huge strawberries…


Am I totally exploiting these photos of Emma Kate and Anthony? I can’t help it – they are so cute!


Now, we’re back at the condo, and I think we’re going to play some card games and go to bed…I guess we’ll plan to get up early again tomorrow and try the fishing trip again.

Have a great Monday night!

Thanks Chad and Heather for taking care of boot camp class and weight loss class tonight!!
