Well, today finds us once again getting up early to attend a boaters swap meet. Fortunatley, this one started at a decent hour - 9am. But, like all boaters swap meet, this one started way before the posted time. We didn't need headlamps or flashlights for this one, luckily!

Tom purchased a heavier duty rod and reel - not sure where it's going to be stored, or what it's replacing... but I guess we'll work that out once we get back to the boat. He also picked up a Hawaiian sling spear gun. I'll keep you posted on how that works out!

I was able to sell a couple more of my jerry jug covers so that clears out a bit of space.

The swap meet was followed by a couple of seminars: fishing, jewelry making and we're currently finishing up one on the SSB radio. Between all of that, Tom and his horseshoe partner, Elvin, were unfortunately eliminated in the second days tournament. He says the heat today made the horseshoes slippery in his hand...... uh, huh!

There's more music planned for later on and then tomorrow a group of us will taxi into town for the farmers market, we're told a not to be missed event!

Great pics! I love your bird photos. And the kids are so cute. That story about the chicken cracked me up!
Looks like you two are having a grand time.
