Fishing up a storm!

14 June 2018 | Casa Azul, BCS
And now I’m on my way home to Casa Azul as we all watch the news and weather channels, monitoring Tropical Storm Bud's progress towards the Baja Peninsula and our precious house.
Nev is down there with Rod and friends who came down for a few days of fishing and have spent a big chunk of time prepping the house for the storm instead!
Thanks guys.
They were lucky enough to hit a school of tuna on Tuesday and pull in 24 fishies to filet, vacuum pack and take home so Nev feels redeemed.
I hope to make it to the house before the big rains begin and I pray that we and all those we know and love in our little community will all be safe...
it's the beginning of the hurricane season but this seems way too early...
I hope its not an ominous warning of what's to come...
positive thoughts!!!!
