Okay so... this whole boat thing is kinda novel and the learning curve is pretty steep, too. Sitting here typing, I still feel myself rocking back and forth, kinda like you feel after a day spent rollerskating. Very disconcerting. I almost think I may be seasick. Is that even possible or did I just get too much sun?
Mention a boat and my brother Brian magically appears. Our idea today was to do some crabbing, so Bri found himself in charge of cutting bait, which I learned he's pretty good at.
I also learned he's really squeamish about these worms... nasty things he was using for the fishing poles. They made him squirm like a girl. Very funny.
I really need to do something with my hair. Could it maybe stick up in one more different direction?
I was surprised (boo hiss!) to find mute swans on the river...
Nice, though, was this oystercatcher feeding near a sandbar. They are such cool birds. It's very hard to take pics on a rocking boat... though at this time we were almost stuck on that sandbar.
Have I mentioned that my brother is a total goofball? You're suppossed to stay in the boat!
So... we didn't catch many crabs at all, but Bri did the goofy fisherman grin anyway. A bad day fishing.... (you know the rest)
He got the pretty blue claws, but I got this tiny little calico crab that didn't even try to bite me.
