Chilling on the Coast

Life is pleasant on the Atlantic coast
Fishing is surely what I enjoy most
     Songs of gulls surrounding me
     Colorful shells line the sea
And of my exploits I feel I must boast

The breeze is refreshing as winds pick up
I cast out hoping for something to sup
     Though the tides aren’t moving
     I am always still grooving
Then with a smile I spy a fish close up

It’s just a tiny minnow swimming past
Oh yes, he’s small, but he might be the last
     So I reach down with my net
     He splashes and gets me wet
On a summer day I have chilled out fast

    Glad to see you are still entering and winning. I hope you are not getting wet. I heard Dand Anne's town is in the midst of the flooding. Congratulations on your win. Love, Joyce

    I just happened to mention you to my friend Sharon Weimer. She said she had been fishing on Sunday, and it made me think of you, and your love of the ocean. What a wonderful way to relax and enjoy nature!! Hope you are doing better, Carolyn!!
