Hello everyone. I hope you all are doing great. Well summer is almost upon us and the waters are getting busy. The jet skier’s are back on the water, the water has warmed up. There are small boats, medium boats and large boats back on the water. Local fishing tournaments are back in full swing with great results. The fishing is great with the Tarpon returning to our area, the Snook bite has been great as is the Red Fish and Trout. The Mackerel are here and so are the King Fish.
Here is another day of living the Waterfront Life Style in SW Florida I always talk about. It was Sunday morning and the weather was supposed to be great with a few thunder showers in the afternoon, typical summer weather for our area. My daughter and her boyfriend and I decided to go fishing and meet some other friends out on the water. We put the boat in at the boat ramp. Today was a big day for my daughter, she was going to drive the boat from the boat ramp to our home on the water all by herself, first time ever. This is about a four mile journey. Ciara, my daughter has been boating her entire life and has driven the boat for as long as I can remember, but I have always been with her in the boat. This was her first solo boat ride. I drove the truck and trailer back to the house and patiently waited for my baby girl to come around the corner on the canal in the boat. It seemed like an eternity, but suddenly, there she was proud as could be, grinning ear to ear. She did such a great job. I am so proud of her and she was so very proud of herself. I just had to share this with you. I am sure you have your own children or grandchildren and if you do not, you may one day 🙂
