Hooked on Matagorda

We wasted no time in getting back to Matagorda after our trip to the mountains. My sister joined us, along with our nephew who was over for a visit.

The Best Shells Are in the Surf

Dylan found some nice shells and John found some fish.

Uncle John Shows Dylan His Catch

Later, Dylan showed off his fishing skills by landing the largest fish of the day--a 12" black drum. (I'll let John post the fish picture on his blog.)

Showing Us How It's Done

Auntie Elizabeth found the honey hole and caught more fish than anyone.

First Cast

I caught nothing, but I did hook Dylan into posing with the sock I'm knitting.

Not as Big as My Fish

It's grown to just past the heel--almost a keeper.

  4. Looks like a perfect day - family and the beach! And the sock is lovely - I'm assuming you'll show it close-up later?

  5. Looks like a wonderful day - I'm sure Dylan had great fun! I enjoyed looking at your husband's pictures of the Estes Market and the little video of the bleating sheep cracks me up - sounds just like our county fair.

  6. I loved your beach pictures back in the winter, but now that hot weather has arrived, they look even more inviting!

    What a fun family day!

  8. Sounds like a perfect day and such a great time for a kid. My DH also likes to fish and I would happily sit and knit!

    DD saw all your lake pictures and now she is campaigning to go to Colorado in the summer (we've only been there to ski). Twist my arm!!!

    Ciao! Joan
