Marathon Morning…Going Fishing…….

The other day we had the good fortune to go fishing with Captain Jimmy on his fishing vessel, High Caliber. The seas were rough, but off we went determined to catch some fish in the early morning hours.


Waves and Splashes

As the good Lord granted, we caught black fin tuna and lots of Mangrove Snapper.


Welcome Aboard!

We were happy fishermen/women.

When we arrived back to the dock we learned that the Tiki Bar had a great chief, and if you “hooked ’em, he would cook ’em”.   So the next day, we took some tuna to him to fix for us for a special luncheon, and it was delicious!!! Good for the heart and the soul….Blackened Tuna That We Caught.jpg

I highly recommend this experience to anyone who needs to do something extraordinary.

I feel blessed for sure.
