Hubby Goes Fishing

Yesterday my wonderful hubby went fishing.

One of our friends from Colorado, grew up in Michigan and he and his family often fish for BIG salmon on Lake Michigan.

Chris was THRILLED to join them at 5:00am for the fishing outing yesterday on Lake Michigan and these are the pictures he had sent to my phone by 8:00am:

Look at that gorgeous Lake Michigan sunrise!

Hubby looks so happy!

By the end of the fishing excursion, this was their total hull:

The dollar bill offers perspective.
Their largest fish was 18.5lbs and the total weight was 170lbs of fish! 

Thirteen beautiful King Salmon in all and, most importantly, Hubby had a BALL!

Between water skiing two days ago, and major fishing work yesterday, he's got some tired muscles.  Fortunately, we head out EARLY this morning for our road trip/baseball trip/see-old-friends trip/fun adventure trip, so he'll get to rest the muscles while we're driving.

I will try to post as often as I can while we're gone... partly for fun, partly because I really enjoy posting every day, but we will see how that goes.

Whatever comes our way, we are REALLY excited for a great trip.

Our trip includes:
  • Baseball - Toronto, CA
  • Buffalo, NY
  • Baseball - Baltimore, MD
  • Washington DC sightseeing
  • Baseball - Washington DC
  • Lexington, VA sightseeing and memory lane
  • Nashville TN sightseeing and memory lane
We will have no animals with us, and a part of me is excited and a part of me will be glad to get them back again.  We are so fortunate to have family who love our animals and are willing to take care of them during our adventures.

Happy Trails...
