gone shrimpin'

the girls were both out of school last week, the week prior to their new school year starting, so we headed down to st. simons for a few days. 

we had a great time.

on the day we arrived, we went out on a 2-hour shrimp boat ride. you get to see them pull the shrimp in, see other fish that get caught in the net and tossed back in the water, then eat shrimp.  well everyone else ate shrimp, not me. 

so here is the second net dump. i wish i had my camera out for the first because a shark was caught! the guy who brings the net up goes through all the fish caught to make sure there isn't anything dangerous (ie- a SHARK) for everyone to touch. once he does that, the kids are free to pick up whatever they want.
