Two Fish Day

Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas


The day was varied but interesting. This morning the OFM Fishing Team managed to land an 18“ speckled trout about 0900. It put us a very good fight. When it was put back in the water it flashed off in a hurry.

 

In the late evening the OFM caught another fish just like that one but he did not have the camera to take another picture.

Nearby was some pretty flowers that the OFM took pictures of. It took a few tries to get a picture that was not too blurry or faded out. It turned out to be some very pretty pictures.

 

Late afternoon there was a rain squall came through. The OFM figured it was a good time to take a nap. So he laid down on his back and put his hands behind his head. AHHH This feels goood was the thought just before the big drip from above hit the inside of his arm and ran down his side. Oh no he exclaimed. The Roof is leaking.

Yep the roof was leaking. When the rain quit the OFM went out and found a1.25 inch gap in some caulking. Then in another place found more gaps. The ladder was put to work and caulking was done to the cracks. It looks like a tree limb may have impacted the Castle and down some damage to the roof. We have our local reliable RV repair man coming to check the whole roof for more damage. He had several calls about leaks today so it will be a day or two before he gets to come over. After the OFM panic and repairs that will be soon enough. The OFM is not feeling steady enough to be running around on the roof at this time. Falling off the roof is another way of not having tooooo much fun.

  3. Scared me when you said you got the ladder and got on the roof! I am glad you are going to have the leak problem taken care of by someone else! Falling off would not be fun!

  5. My youngest son has a total fit if I even say the word "ladder". That's the only reason I try to stay off anything but my little one-step-ladder (that he doesn't know about). It's scary when you think about how many older people are impacted for life by a fall.

    1. I do ok with a stepladder if I am next to a solid object, like a travel trailer, to help me maintain my balance while stopped. Going up and down is still no trouble but standing on the ladder to do something can be too exciting.
