Some more vacation photos

Thanks, Donna, for the pointers on how to more quickly download photos. It helped a LOT! The captions are BELOW the photos. Enjoy.
One very smiling Mikey after a good catch.
A bucket of fish, just at the beginning of the day. A few barracuda and a red snapper. That is a large yard-sized trash can, by the way.
I think the crew/mate, John, is actually LICKING the face of this fish. EWWW!
As we were leaving Destin early on Saturday morning, the sun was just coming up and we saw this large bird on the sand. A crane, perhaps?
Donna, serving as look out. Actually, she's just out for a bit of fresh air. She does not do well on open water and the "patch" hadn't kicked in yet. urp.
Me and Donna.
Mom enjoying the boat ride out to the open ocean.
Mom getting tired of the open ocean ride, so she took a nap.
Donna snapping a photo of me snapping a photo of her. This was our last night there in Georgia.
Thursday night, July 9, at Mom and Dad's house. Donna is trying to explain to Mom the route to Fort Walton Beach for the next day's drive.
Me and my Daddy.
Dinner with the folks. We were missing some girls (Angie and Elizabeth) because they were still in Florida at Grandma Ashwood's house.
Playing "Push the Dummy" after dinner.
Mike and I relaxing in Donna's lovely backyard pool.
Ladies in the hot tub.
I'm sure Donna never thought she'd find a wheelbarrow full of cement in her bathroom! But there it is!
Butch and Dad are helping with cuts on the tile saw. And moral support. AND a LOT of clean up! Thanks, Butch!
Mike snapped this shot of the finished travertine he/they installed. I don't know why he took it before the stone was a little more cleaned up. It really is pretty stone. I learned how to turn a mean beveled edge on one of those babies. ;-)

Looks like you had a wonderful trip! So fun!

One of these days, I'd like to see a demonstration of this bevelling edge business ;-)
