Catching Dinner

July 7, 2010

Hey guys! Yesterday, the fishermen (and woman) headed out to sea, while my mom and I stayed home with Sophie.

I think she was a little wary at first:

…especially when this guy tried to get in on the babysitting action:

But soon she figured out how fun we are!

What a great book.  I laughed, I cried…it was better than Cats.

After the fisherpeople returned from the sea with ample bluefish for dinner, Ryan and I headed out on a walk.  We ended up walking to a little bay about ten minutes from our house:


It ended up being great for beachcombing! We found tons of shells!




(Ryan’s hands, not mine)

Dinner included fresh fish, of course.  I didn’t want to insult the fisherman, so I had a taste of the fish, along with some tofu that I made for myself.  We also had salad and brown rice pilaf—simple, but delicious!

The fish was great—very fresh!

Today, I think we’re going to go on a six mile hike through a nature preserve that ends up at the ocean.  I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures!

Have a great day!
