Journey Jots #15
Hello, guys! I am back from sunny Florida and it’s so good to be home.
We had such an amazing time playing and basking in the warmth. It thawed us out!
I had my first go at saltwater fly fishing and I’m hooked. I caught some beautiful ocean-dwelling fish and can’t wait to go back for more!
Since we’ve been away, I don’t have much to share from the home front. We are getting back into the swing of things post-vacation and Tilly is SO happy to have her humans back.
So, I’ll share a few more snippets from Florida!
Our uncle took us to the new St. Petersburg Pier for a spectacular sunset over Tampa Bay.
Fishing was the highlight of our trip, for sure. We were at the ocean everyday, trying our luck at catching a Snook or a Redfish. We didn’t catch either of those but managed to hook into some smaller fish.
On one of the days, as I was standing in the water, a small shark came swimming RIGHT by my feet! It was super cool but I was also a bit spooked for a few minutes.
The Florida coast is just stunning and full of the most beautiful wildlife. We saw probably a dozen dolphins… one even came within 10 feet of me while we were fishing!
From flora and fauna to starfish in the sand, there is nothing about the ocean that I don’t absolutely love. Even though it feels great to be home, I can’t wait to get back…this time not waiting another 4 years!
