Turkey Thursday but FISH on Friday

You could not ask for a more perfect day ! WHERE ELSE BUT PARADISE----The Florida Keys.
After a long day in the kitchen, cooking and then cleaning up
turkey,turkey, about some FISH? We decided to go south for Thanksgiving, it has been COLD in north Fl. so we went south to warm up. Left home early Wednesday and was making great time, after seven hours on the road we were ten miles from our daughters house when we got held up behind a bad wreck, sat there for way over an hour.It was a beautiful sunny day and we had ocean on both sides of the road but it is hard to enjoy when you know someone is in a bad situation just ahead of you. We later found out a man died. One of the hazards of living in the Keys.
On a lighter note, the weather on Friday could not have been any better. Our son-in-law took us out in the bay fishing. We anchored up in three different spots and caught fish in every one. Yellow tails were everywhere---also snappers and some small groupers that we had to throw back, I cried as they were set free as I knew how good they would have tasted. Oh well maybe next time they will be big enough to keep. We were very happy with our catch, and yes we had fish for dinner last night. We had a wonderful time, it was good to get away, but after four nights our bed sure did feel good. Hope everyone had a BLESSED and HAPPY THANKSGIVING
