Fishing

For my birthday (today), my uncle, his friend, and my cousin took me salmon fishing in the San Juan's.

We caught no salmon, but I managed to reel in a rockfish--think really ugly fish with bulging eyes and spiney fins--and a dogfish--a small shark, about 2 1/2 feet long.

We also pulled up three crabs, two of which were keepers.

On top of this, I managed to catch a few too many rays. My face, forearms, and knees are bright red.

I'm not really that much into fishing, but I had a good time. It makes me think of the Brad Paisley song, 'I'm Gonna Miss Her," known to most as "The Fishing Song."

  1. If you have to catch crabs, that's the preferable way to do it. It's amazing that an enlightened person such as yourself would have no knowlege of "sunscreen". Google it.

  2. Of course he had a good time, it was either go fishing in the San Juans or stay home and entertain 3 small children. No brainer! Too bad he didn't use his brain and use sunscreen, he was more red than the crabs they caught.

    Glad I could help with the kids!
    Love Mom!

  3. This has nothing to do with your post, but I just want to say that every time I come to this website, the Costanza picture catches me unawares.
