Then he got his driver's license. Oh, wow, that was good! Now he could drive on the ferry to me. We got my fishing license. He already had his, of course. We examined the different fishing rods. Summer was our time! We roamed around in his little car, with his big stereo not too loud, because grandma needs to talk as well as listen. Our favorite song was Pontoon.
He's into big time fishing now. He has a beautiful ocean kayak, and recently bought a lovely small boat.
About every day after his job, he'll manage to go fishing! You can't let those lovely daylight hours go without trying to catch a fish. A big one, preferably. He catches them, cleans them, scales them, fillets them, vacuum seals them, and then they land up in his Mom's freezer. It's a great excuse to see the family. Just too many fillets end up in that freezer, and I get to have a lot of them!
A couple of weeks ago I smoked some of my salmon fillets, enjoying the process. In fact I found a way to give you my dry brine smoked salmon recipe in the following slideshow. It was fun. But this summer it seems there's something missing. It's Mark.
Wishing you a safe and beautiful weekend!
