Bad day fishing

While my friends and I had a great last day of snapper mini season
yesterday someone's day was not as good. We saw the boat above on the beach
in the Canaveral Bight on the way back in. No details at this point.
BTW, we caught our limit of snapper (one per person) smallest 14 lbs.

Crabs & fighters in Cocoa Beach

The sound from the Raptor doing it's maneuvers today at the Cocoa
Beach air show was so loud and intense it had the ghost crabs
seeking shelter above ground. This guy cowered at the back door
until the ruckus was over.

I've been pinked!

Woke up this morning to a yard full of pink plastic flamingos and a cryptic sign.
I think I may be a victim of the Cocoa Beach High robotics team. I anticipate
an extortion attempt for flamingo removal to follow.
[edit] The ransom note just arrived. No wonder these kids win competitions.

Swell is here Cocoa Beach 9-4-2012

Stand-up paddleboarder in between sets before sunrise 9/4/2012
First three guys to hit the water this AM in south Cocoa Beach

Sets were head-high and powerful in south Cocoa Beach at daybreak.
Further north towards the Pier it was smaller and weaker but still fun.
