My photo
Having a large Scottish heritage that migrated from England into Canada to Maine and other states. I am from a family of 9. Six girls and 3 boys. My dad died young when I was about 8 years old. I have 4 children and 3 step children with the great joy of 20 grandchildren. I worked in financial institutions and accounting for many years. Now I sew and make lots of stuffed animals and many other things. I'm a grandmother that has years of sewing in a wide variety of catagories. Photography has become one of my passions over the years. Nature that God has presented us is one of the greatest to photograph. My family and pets hate to see me with a camera in my hands. The bug took hold at Christmas time taking photos of my children in front of the tree. That became a tradition. Then you have family gatherings, vacations, grandchildren and the list could go on.

Boat Ride and Fishing

We woke to a beautiful day. Sunny, warm but not too hot yet. My husband had decided we would go for a boat ride and fishing. We went on the river as it is very hard to get into the Inter Coastal unless you get up before the crack of dawn, which I can't do. Anyways, it was a beautiful day to be out in the boat. My husband designed and built it from scratch a few years ago. It is a small one just under 16 feet. We were trolling when he thought there was a tug on his line, so he started reeling it in slowly. Thought it might have been a false catch, but started tugging again, so began reeling in again. I won't keep you in suspense long. He caught a small about 12-16 inch SHARK! What a surprise. We tried our best to get the hook from its mouth, but it wouldn't release. So, I said why don't you just cut the hook off? Sure enough that is what he did while I held the shark by the middle and tail. My husband said the hook would come out on its own eventually. It had very pretty coloring with outline of black on its fin and tail end. Just had to tell this before forgetting about it, with this short turn memory at times :) Photos were taken a couple of years ago, but the boat is the boat we were fishing in today.
