What a day!!!!

Dave is feeling better so he baked this morning. Rolls for lunch and biscuits for snacks.

Then we went off to sea, to catch flathead of course. But Dave persuaded the obliging skipper that we also needed to fish for a few minutes over rocks, so that we could catch some bigger Wrasse for the cats.

Well, Dave had 4 hooks on his handline, and brought up 3 Wrasse in one go. The rest of us were content just to bring up one at a time, but we have ended with about 10kg of Wrasse, so the cats will be happy for a long long time!

We also hit a wonderful spot for the flathead and caught a goodly number,some really big ones as well. The guys each caught Gurnard, which we kept, dispite the spines, and we will try later. Dave says they should be delicious, just beware of the spines!!

This evening is a 'bring and share' wedding celebration of some friends of ours, so Dave is busy cooking for that. And we are due there shortly!!

Then tomorrow we have no power from 6am, which is really 5am as we change time, until lunch time. But we have a 'bring and share' lunch out in a wildlife area, so Dave is busy cooking for that as well.

All in all, it has been a really busy day, but we have so much to show for it, it is really wonderful. Though I must admit I am battling to type a bit, as the keyboard is going up and down with the waves!! It was fine when we were gutting fish, it just seems to kick in when I sit down.


  1. Keep us posted as to the outcome of the Guernard, please. I've been curious about them for a while.

  2. Will do, so far we have one in the fridge and 2 in the freezer, but progress will be made soon I hope!
