Since the guys bought their fishing permits last night they were anxious to give it a try and the girls were ready for another morning of waves and sand.
Alpheus and Larry were the first to be ready to surf fish. The object is to throw their lines past the breaking of the waves near the shore. This was no easy task in the strong breeze and current.
Alpheus' first catch was of the vegetarian kind. (sea weed)

I tried to get them to play in the sand first before getting wet, but they just can't resist those waves!

After lunch, I made all the girls lie down for naps. They had played hard and stayed up late for the last 3 days so they were ready! When we awakened, we put in the Princess Bride movie which was part of the collection here at the house. It was a nice relaxing afternoon.
Then we enjoyed a belated Cinco De Mayo dinner of steak quesadillas, mexican corn, and refried beans. Memaw also treated us to homemade chocolate milkshakes! After dinner, the adults played Mexican train!
Tomorrow is supposed to be the prettiest day so far! Looking forward to some new activities. Still on the mental list: Roanoake Island, A Working Farm, Botanical Gardens, a light house (not sure which one), more fishing, putt-putt golf, and more!
