Yes, I did say "we" were done fishing.
This morning, however, Cory and Josiah got up early and caught the tide. When they came home, they had all the fish they wanted, Krista and Luke had all the fish they wanted the day before, and they gifted us 10 fish - which was all the fish we wanted. We are beyond thankful. The state allows Michael to declare a proxy to hunt and fish for him due to his VA disability. He doesn't want to use that benefit, but with his back acting up it was sure a blessing to have these two watching our back. The fish have been slower this year. Last year we caught 100 fish in ONE TIDE! ::snort:: We have had to work for it this year. Our family total (Gherkins and us that are here) is 116. We truly ARE done fishing for this trip.

I joined Arielle in the early morning hours to run off boy energy. I told them they couldn't have any of my "China tea" (young Benny's interpretation of Chai tea) this morning because it was my "super twin power drink."

Michael and Cory started cleaning up the fishing equipment in preparation for packing.
It's been a good trip. We are down to 8 adults and 3 kids now.
