We went fishing a couple weeks back at Lake Manatee. We'd never been there before. It was a very windy day so there wasn't too much boat traffic going on which was good since we could only fish off the docks.
It will be a nice place to fish if I ever get into a little boat. There was a guy there with a Gheenoo and I liked the little thing. I think it would sit on the van's luggage rack nicely.
The first two pictures were on our way in toward the docks. We saw the little fellow not 2 feet off the road. I have heard there is a good sized population of them here, but it's my first sighting. Thanks to Misty for the photos from the passenger seat!

The scenery while fishing:
The bird kind of whitewashed out because the sun was going down, but it's still a nice idea of the place.
I forgot to mention that I started a new job two weeks ago.
The people there seem really nice, including the owner and shop foreman who interviewed me. I hope to learn a lot there. I've never really done any grinding before and although I've used countless carbide drills before, it had never occured to me that I'd be making them someday.
It takes me back to my early days in the shop. All manual work with specialized machines, some of them built back in the '40s. It feels good to get my "hands on" again.
Hopefully I get the chance to snap some good photos, but perhaps not- lots of trade secrets there, don't ya know?
... oh, and it's day shift work. Back to the Blog!!!!!!!
