I went out early today about 6:30am and went to where the bay empties out into the ocean to do a little bit of fishing.

It was a trek of about a quarter mile just to get to water. Another 1/8 of a mile to get to where the water was more than knee deep at 30 yards out.

Once I got out to the rock lined edge, the water deepened and I started casting. I had several artificial lures and within a few minutes had figured out what I wanted.

I got several bites but nothing solid. I never could quite give them what they wanted I guess.

All told, round trip, Im guessing I walked around 2 1/2 miles either through ankle deep sand or rock hopping when I was at the jetties proper.

I have had a wonderful morning though in spite of not catching any fish. For the first couple of hours, there was absolutely no one around and I only saw 2 boats the whole time.

The water was clear and appeared to be liquid glass. I could see clearly 30 feet out and 20 feet down. Numerous time I saw larger fish but, again, they didnt want what I had.

Besides the 2 boats, all I heard were the gulls and herons calling and the soft lapping of tiny waves against rock or sand.

The sun, while still plenty hot, isnt as bad as it was a month ago. It made the sand sparkle and me sweat profusely between walking in deep sand and rock hopping.

It was peaceful and serene and even though I didnt catch anything, when I finally decided to turn back, I was smiling.

I decided to walk slowly through the deep sand all the way back to look for shells. To my surprise I found many spiral shaped ones of varying sizes. I also found one hermit crab shell about 3 inches by 1 1/2 (a conk type and a rare find) and several large pieces of larger flat shells which I hope to make/fashion something out of.

Not only did I get a helluva workout, I recharged my spiritual batteries as well.

Now Im back home and would be in the shower but, as happens quite often, Krickys and my radar are jiving together and she messaged me as soon as I walked in the door that she was on lunch.

So now we get to tell each other about our day so far. Seriously, I can not complain about this day off too much. The only thing that could make it better would be if Kricky was off too but Ill take this.

Later Ill take a shower and get around to doing some chores. Dinner tonight will be stuffed pork loin with creamed rice and broccoli inside.

For now? Im content to sit here for a few minutes and feel the sand from the beach between my toes. =)

S&T

"Sounds like a great way to start the day. Fishing is more about the process than it is about catching fish anyway."

As Ive said in the past, theres a number of ways a song or performer will hook me.

This one has that underlying current. It grabs you almost instantly but subtlety at first. Like a soft lapping of water against the shore. Then suddenly crescendos. It goes back and forth and carries you along with it.

Good lyrics too. Theyve got a good hook and turn of play on the words.


Enjoy. Or not. *shrug* ;)

S&T

Girl if you're the cure,
Give me the needle.
Bury it deep,
Free me from this evil.

It's lonely sittin' in,
And my heart's in bad condition.
Come on girl give in,
And feed my addiction.

I have tasted Eden's apple.
And there's heaven in my veins.
The bite still burns,
I've lost the lost the battle,
And now only love can kill the pain.

So tempt me with a whisper,
Tease me with a touch.
Cut me with those kisses,
And let me bleed your love.

Cause I have tasted Eden's apple.
And there's venom in my veins.
The bite still burns,
I've lost the battle.
And now only love can kill the pain.

Now I'm walking through the garden.
But it ain't paradise.
It's cold and growin' darker,
With every lonely night.

I ought to be ashamed.
I know it's forbidden.
But my soul bears your name.
I don't wanna be forgiven.

Cause I have tasted Eden's apple.
And there's venom in my veins.
The bite still burns,
I've lost the battle.
And now only your love can kill the pain.

Girl if you're the cure,
Give me the needle.
Bury it deep.

(Fee me from this evil)
(Free me from this vein)
(Free me from this evil)
(Free me from this vein)

I get the drums and the "ooooo-oooooo-oooooo" part stuck in my head for an hour at a time. The sign of a good song. ;)
