I have been meaning to post pictures of our fishing trips and I keep forgetting, so today's the day...


Not my best picture, but the fish is nice!

There were a ton of whales out where we were and they were breaching all over the place. We actually barely missed one coming completely out of the water, we just caught the splash which was pretty cool too.
I was never quick enough to get a good tail picture, and every time I was ready the boat would rock and mess it up so this is as good as I got.

Hefting up the catch of the day...

100 pounds!!

I haven't really been out in the sun, able to get a really nice tan, the one that lasts you through the winter, in over a year. Last summer I was in Alaska and whenever I was outside I was sportin the neoprene waders and a jacket so there was no sun touchin my skin. Before that it was winter, not much sun, and the summer before I was in Montana and had pretty good color. So, I figure it's been closer to two years since I've had a decent tan.

A couple of weeks ago I noticed that I could see pretty much every vein in my legs and arms, not something I was used to, so I mentioned it to Mac. He kindly told me that it was because my skin had gone beyond pale and was now virtually translucent! I decided he was probably right when every time I went to church and saw my reflection in the doors and was appalled at my legs and their lack of any sign of pigmentation.

So the other day I went and bought a tanning package and tanned for the first time in a long time. It was glorious! So, I'm hoping that after a few weeks I never see my veins again!
