Let's go fishing!!
In order to go fishing all we needed to do was walk on down to the pier, rent a couple of poles, buy some bait and we were good to go! I of course, did not fish. I will fish but I'm a bit sad about fishing because I feel bad for the tiny fishes. I will eat fish, don't get me wrong but given the choice of catching a fish or taking pictures of people catching fish, I think you know what I would choose. We were fishing off the pier for about three hours so I had a gazillion photos when we were finished. Here are some of our pictures of our fishing adventure. Settle in because there are a lot of them because... well just because.
PS. It was a bit of a shooting challenge due to the fact that within the three hours we had a bright sky, then clouds, then rain, then bright sky. All the while It was bright and I had no way of seeing the LCD screen. This is when the old school film camera knowledge came in handy. Knowing what settings do what in familiar light settings is helpful because sometimes you have no LCD screen. Just saying.
The Pier... The way I see it.
The view of our houses from the pier... Hey Mary, I can
see your house from here!
Everyone getting all set up with poles and bait.
Doug, Molly and Max.
Speaking of Max, this is Max.
I don't know if Emma was too sure about it all in the
Once she got going, she fished with her usual style and flair,
I may have the only daughter who fishes in "diamonds."
She held the record for the day of 16 fish caught
not bad for her first time fishing.
It was the job of the dads, Steve and Doug, to remove the
hooks from every fish their children caught. That's one reason
Its also their job to make sure the children get to touch
the fish they catch.
These fish were rather prickly and spiny.
Its hard to hold a prickly fish...
And sometimes they bite, the pricklies, not the fish...
Amanda hard at work catching all her fish.
Chatting with Max, while still catching fish.
Max caught plenty of his own fish.
Molly did too, but they went to a different part of the pier...
And there goes Emma to that other part of the pier...
This is one of my favorite pictures...
Doug is pulling up someone's fish as is Steve,
Mary is hiding from my camera, Amanda is re-baiting.
Alix is listening to her iPod, and I just don't know what
Emma is doing... I just don't. Perhaps this is when it was raining?
Speaking of Mary... I was only allowed to shoot her feet
and her hand reaching out to her fish...
Seeing me with my camera was not her favorite thing.
No fishing just music...
I really loved this plane with the sign it pulled...
It just reminded me of the 70's when I was a kid
at the beach.
Yeah, I know some people think I'm weird for taking pictures of
stuff like this. Seriously, though how could you not?
It's so fabulous and horrid all at the same time.
I saw this next to all the King fishermen's poles. What do you think
its for? Like, where did it come from and why a purple bucket?
The crew... Prior to the arrival of Alix.
