Fish Lake

Okay, here are some photos from our recent trip to Fish Lake:

This is from August 4, 2008.
Mary bought a fishing license one day, so we had to go out and buy a pole and tackle. She went
with David's family, fishing off the shore at a place where the little yellow perch were biting. This is Mary's first fish. Lincoln caught about 10, and Julia and Mary a few more each the first day, and they all caught more the next day. The daily limit on perch is 50 per person per day, so they are very plentiful. We cleaned and cooked and ate them one night. They are tasty, but bony.

Here is the family at the motel. From the left, Annette's daughter, Amy; then Julia, Becky, Samuel, David, Isaac, Max, Lincoln, and Mary.

More fish stories

Yesterday we went fishing again. This time Max and Mary took Carolyn and Matthew on a 110 foot boat from Lewes, Delaware, into the Ocean. The fishing boat provided rods and reels and bait. We were gone for four and a half hours. Max caught three fish, two sharks and one other. Mary didn't catch anything, but we still had fun! All Max's fish were too small to keep, however. They were about a foot long each.

Don't believe us? Sorry, we don't have pictures; the camera battery went dead just as we left shore. We'll send pictures of us on the boat, though.

First Blog Entry

Okay, this is our toe in the water. Hmmm, not too bad.

I'm writing from the beach house in Ocean View, Delaware. We are here with Katie's family enjoying time at near-by Bethany Beach. We flew in to BWI Thursday afternoon, spent the night at Katie's house, then drove here Friday and went to the beach that evening. The water was cold and the tide low, but we enjoyed it.

We went again Saturday. The water is still cold and the waves even higher and the sun hot and there were a lot of people. It was wonderful. Pictures to follow.

We started the week on Monday driving to Fish Lake, Utah for a family reunion. Three of Max's sisters and several of their children, grandchildren, and great-grand-children were there. Mary bought a fishing license and rod, reel, and tackle and went fishing for the first time every. Mary, Lincoln, Samuel, Julia, and David all caught about two dozen yellow perch in two days. Becky, Max and Isaac were the cheerleaders. We came home Wednesday in time to get ready for our 6:00AM flight the next day.

Max will tell you about his trip to Kuala Lumpur in a later post.
