    My older son, daughter-in-law, and I, went down to St. Simon's Island...in SE Georgia this week. We arrived there late Saturday evening and returned just after midnight last night. (My older daughter lives there.)

    I still have until this coming Monday before I have to return to work.

    I didn't get as many photos on this trip as we spent several "nearly all-nighter's" doing some fishing off the pier at The Village. It had been many, many moons since I had done much fishing but my son was so very eager to do some salt-water fishing so we all got our rods and reels and went for it.

    I actually pulled in the first catch ... about a 10 inch baby shark. This was at a beach area and not on the pier. Once we went to the pier, between the three of us we must have caught close to 2 dozen of those baby sharks! My d-i-l did catch a couple of Whiting and some Toad-fish among her own baby sharks.

    We did take a trip over to Jekyll Island and walked about a mile and a half to a beach area where it's known to have some shark teeth. We also did some fishing there. My son caught a 3-4 lb Bull Shark while there.

    The final catch, which was mine again, was a 14-inch Stingray. This, I caught under the Sydney Lanier Bridge not too far from Jekyll Island....which is next to St. Simon's Island.

    All-in-all, it's been a very relaxing vacation. But, as always, it's really nice to be able to sleep in my own bed again. :)

    Stingrays just look so... alien, for the lack of better word. Seeing and actually catching one, pretty cool. :)

    Stingrays are beautiful, it generally does not attack aggressively or even actively defend themselves.

    Especially if you are Australian.
