Gone Fishin'

Good morning,

Here are a few more images from Cocoa Beach, Florida, that we took last January.  While it was very cold in Ohio, those former Ohioans on the right were sitting on the beach watching their lines in the water.  Off in the distance you can see a cruise ship sailing out of Port Canaveral.  The next night, we would be on board one of those ships.
Back to the lines in the water....  Isn't this beautiful?  The former Buckeye was talking out to check that fishing pole.  My Honey and I chatted with him as we walked along the beach.  I don't think it really mattered whether he caught anything or not.
It was the "being here" that was important.  He had retired to Cocoa Beach and lived nearby.
Now, that's retirement.  :)

Enjoy,
Lois

Love your pics, as for the the fishing... That is why they call it fishing and not "catching." Sometimes I don't want to catch a fish.

I can certainly understand the just 'being there' aspect of it all! I should take off today & go fishing at my parent's farm... Sounds like a plan, Thank you! =)

In the winter, there might be more Buckeyes in Florida than in Ohio.
