We woke up at 5:30 this morning (3:30 Utah, ehem) to go deep sea fishing with A.J. I was soooo excited! A.J. said the girls could stay at the hotel if we wanted to and get all spoiled at the spa. But noooooo! We refused to stay at a spa when we could be having an awesome adventure!!! We ordered a quick breakfast at this little diner…
The morning was beautiful…but very cold and windy….
When I saw the boat we would be in all day, I was seriously about to just stay in the car and wait for them. I imagined something a little bit bigger, with perhaps an indoor area to keep warm in. I was not prepared for cold weather when I packed for Florida…
We had such a great day, though! We stopped to catch some live bait. Brandon caught a barracuda almost immediately.
We listened to country music the whole day and it was soooo appropriate because we were on the craziest bull/bucking bronco ride EVER. It was so much fun…at first….but I was getting a little queezy and we were nowhere near land nor the fishing spot. I just focused on the horizon and concentrated on NOT being sick. That just made it worse. I kept thinking about all the movies I had seen where people were seasick and throwing up. Anyhoo, we finally stopped to fish and that’s when things got bad.
I felt sooooo great after that! But then Eddie got sick…
Then I got sick again… Then Tonya threw up….It was CRAY CRAY!!!
Eddie couldn’t close his eyes without feeling nauseated again, and I couldn’t open mine. Linz, Josh and Brandon were just fine. 🙂 The conditions were just not great for fishing so eventually they gave up and took us back in. I was praying THE WHOLE TIME that I would make it back alive.
But before the seasickness hit, we saw a whale, a couple of huge sea turtles and lots of dolphins!!!!! It was really such an amazing day!!!
A.J. took us back to his house where we met his wife and two of his kids. She fed us some lunch and we hung out for a while, mostly the guys talked business. I went back to the hotel and took a shower and washed the puke out of my hair. Then all the girls got to have massages at the spa. OMGOSH! It was sooooo great!!! Then we went to dinner at a sushi place.
We were all totally beat after dinner and went to bed!
