Default I nearly forgot what it's all about ......

It's been a hell of a week - I won't go into it other than a few key words: teenagers, money, crash, business, teenagers again, aaaaaghhh ....... so my wife called a friend who does boat charter to try to get us all out of the situation. I wasn't sure, I mean there are a heap of REALLY important things that need doin' ... this boat trip bonding thing was going to get in the way. Anyway, I never really considered fishing to be a perticulally fun passtime ever since a miserable day at a Birmingham canal as a kid.
Wow, I have lived on the Bayside for five years and I've been to Peel Island and over to Straddie and it's great and scenic ...... but I have never in my life felt tranquility like I did yeaterday, especially considering my proximity to the kids!
The cat with a skipper from 9am - 9pm cost (almost) less than fish & chips at Raby Bay! He supplied all of the fishing gear and even filleted our catch. A balmy 25 deg unbroken Autumn sunshine, and water so clear you could pick out the turtles & Rays easily. Watching the sunset over the bay while the dolphins played around the boat, the shouts of excitement as one of us landed another 'keeper' the only sound other than the rigging creaking in the breeze ....
Oh yes, and we were only three k's from home - perfect

Sounds fantastic

It's always good to take time out & step back a bit from time to time in order to keep some perspective! (IMO)
