Weekend Wanderings

We had a fabulously uneventful weekend. Friday we visited the in-laws for a delicious dinner, and most of Saturday was spent trying to fix our well pump. Let me tell you, waking up to a house without water is dreadful. I ran a few errands early in the morning thinking that no one I knew would see me (unshowered and disheveled) that early in the morning. Thankfully, I didn't run into a single person I knew, or maybe they just didn't recognize the beast that I was… 

After only 8 or so hours (and cooking with bottled water), the pump was fixed! Hooray! We had friends over Saturday night to watch college football, and I'm very happy that both of my teams won (Carolina and Florida State).

Sunday was completely relaxing, until we went wading on the marsh. The views are breathtaking, but the bugs are the devil.

And if you're lucky, or highly skilled, you might just catch a scaly friend.

He was a little larger than the keeper limit, so we let him swim free.

On our way back to the boat, Jared spotted something in the distance.

And landed the fish like a boss.

Naturally we celebrate great catches with a delicious bottle of wine.

All in all, we had a fantastic weekend. The only thing that would have made it better was some fresh redfish filets pan seared to perfection. Maybe next weekend…
