MacGyver and I were in Nokomis for the weekend. We were really looking forward to some fishing and fun. We got there late Friday afternoon and spent most of the day working on some projects and cleaning. I would rather have been out of the boat or at the beach but it was crazy windy and a bit chilly and when that happens Florida be like….
Anywho Friday night we hit up Left Coast Seafood with the parents and as always it was the very best way to end the night; with great food and full belly’s.
We had hoped to fish on Saturday but it was still crazy windy and MacGyver and I had some things we had to attend to so we took care of some business and then hit up a few garage sales. Sadly, most of the garage sales were disappointing. I hate it when that happens but MacGyver managed to find some things he needed so it wasn’t a total bust, for him anyway.
Saturday night the parents cooked dinner for us so we went down to Englewood with the dogs. While waiting for dinner MacGvyer managed to get a few mullet while bow fishing. He put them in a bucket on the shore and within just a few minutes we almost lost them all to a Great Blue Heron. MacGyver only had his back turned a few minutes before he swooped in and try to score some free fish. It was the most hilarious thing I’ve ever seen. I had no idea how lazy Great Blue Heron’s are, I think I love them even more.
Unfortunately when you get distracted by all this beauty, scavenger’s
Great Blue Heron’s await!
We finally made it out to fish on Sunday and everyone caught a fish, everyone, and that’s why we decided to have a fish fry yesterday afternoon. Even though the weekend was quick, there wasn’t a lot of fishing, and I never walked or ran my favorite trail, it was still a great weekend. Could it have been better? Yes, No, maybe, I don’t know…Why are dingleberries brown? It’s just the way shit is.
Abraham is such a source of wisdom, is he not? I ran this morning and I cant wait to tell you all about it, tomorrow….
Points if you can tell me where I heard the dingleberry line from…
