Enjoying Island Life Hook Line and Sinker

This is my better half James Andrew.  He has been working non stop for the past 7 years I would say. 

He is finally taking some time and enjoying all the things our little island has to offer - and it is also for my benefit. 

He loves to fish, and he is on a mission when he does go.  Here is one trip he took recently down to the Padre Island National Seashore. 

Here is a picture of his catch!  All I can say is, it was good and tasty!

I just wanted to share a post about him and the beauty of our area. 

If you are ever in Corpus Christi Texas, don't miss going to the Padre Island National Seashore.  There is driving for miles & miles and it is so beautiful, quiet and peaceful.

That is a very sizable fish and would have made for a few good meals

Good morning Ed Silva - it did make a few meals.  I wasn't sure if we were keeping it, and I hate to say but I felt sorry for the fish.  It is a redfish and one of my favorites, so I was glad he kept it!  Enjoy your day!

Brenda, how fun, I love to fish!   I was going to ask what kind of fish, but see it was a redfish.   YUMMY!

We buy fresh fish at the harbor quite often.  And it is mind boggling when I think of how far the Pacific stretches.  ?A

Fresh fish is the Best!!  We do that too, it is much faster than going and catching yourself!  It was fun!

Hi Brenda= I haven't been down to Corpus or Padre Island in years!!!  That looks like fun.

Hi Kathy - You should take some time and come down.  We are having some cooler weather right now but most days are sunny and beautiful!  The Island has changed so much in the past 20 years.  People are starting to discover it!  It was a fun day and very relaxing! Have a great day!

Hello Brenda - I may not immediately think of Island Life and the state of Texas in one thought or together but your post makes it clear that it is evident.  And as you say:  Hook Line and Sinker.  Good times indeed!

Good morning Michael. I comepletely understand.  I grew up going to the beach in Galveston but moved to Corpus Christi 20 years ago.  I had no idea there was a beach here and I love it!  It was a lot of fun watching him catch this one!  Thanks for stopping by!

What a sweet post, Brenda... and that is quite a catch! Padre Island is one of my favorite places in Texas even though I haven't been there in decades.

Thank you Nina!  I started this post a while back and just realized I had not shared it.  It was such a fun time. My hubby said I was his good luck charm!  Anyway, I hope you are able to make it back sometime. Let me know if you do!

Brenda J. Andrew - I know how special this day was for  you and your husband and you both deserved it very much. Too often, our lives get separated from the ones we love because we must work. I'm glad he got to enjoy his time off with you and do some serious fishing which you both benefited from too! I pray you have many, many, many more days like this and new adventures too. Always, I wish the two of you love and happiness.

Good morning Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP It was a very nice day and great quality time.  We both love the beach so much, it is our favorite place to be.  It is hard to believe that since we have not spent as much time doing it lately.  I just listened to the best talk with Joyce Meyer and it talked about taking time and doing things you enjoy, so that way you are not constantly in the hustle and bustle of everything.  I'm adding it in this link - I think you would love it!!  I wish you the best and thank you for always being such a light!  You are a beautiful person inside and out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DuTxGLCI-cg

Brenda J. Andrew - I love the beach too. The first time I experienced the ocean was with my kids in 1987. I felt the peace, the calmness of the seashore, and feeling as if time wasn't rushed. My mind was open to all its beauty and wonder and the warm sand beneath my feet was welcoming. Thank you for that gift from Joyce Meyer. I enjoyed it very much! She is absolutely right, you have to have balance and change the pace of your life. If you don't, you'll miss out on true peace and tranquility. I did love it and will continue to watch more of her videos! Thank you, so much. I enjoy our friendship. I shall keep you in my thoughts and prayers for more great memories and adventures with your husband to get you to your happy places that you both so richly deserve. Now and forever, I wish you the best. Thank you, for being your authentic self and such a beautiful person inside and out too!
