My father and the guy we hired the boat from added about a dozen apiece.
They took pity on me and gave me a fish to hold.
On the positive side I got a nice tan.
I also got about a dozen flounder fillets to bring home. Ill have a post on that later this week
My favorite part of the day was the the ride home.
Last fall when we made this trip, Dad drove home. As he drove I noticed how uncomfortable he was behind the wheel. To me it was the first sign that he was becoming ill.
He got pretty sick over the winter and it was touch and go for a while. He came through with flying colors. But one down side was that he wasn't allowed to drive anymore. That would have driven me crazy but he took it with aplomb
So back to this year, we were driving home. After a day driving to PA yesterday then an early morning drive to the shore today, and a day fishing in the hot sun, I was dog tired. My father noticed how much I was struggling to stay awake. And nonchalantly offered to drive.
He explained that he has just been medically cleared to drive again. With some trepidation. I let him take the wheel concerned it would be like the Ferrari scene from Scent of a Woman
He did fine. It was really like coming full circle after the trip last year.
