September 8th – The one – or two – that got away!

I went down to Bonniebrook Beach today in search of the gray whale that’s been in our area for the past month and a half. I swear everyone has seen it but me! Anyway, as I was sitting at the waters edge waiting for some giant mammal from the depths to breach right in front of me, these fisherman were slowly drifting down my way. As I watched them I noticed that every once-in-a-while a fish would jump behind them. As they got closer to me, indeed the fish were jumping around them. Interestingly, not in front of them.. but behind their backs, as if to taunt them. I wanted to yell out to them, ” You’re fishing from the wrong side of the boat”, but it was far too funny to watch!
