Raf, along with his Air Force buddy (left) Bob Berry, and Bob's son, Troy Berry, got up at 4:30 to be on Laguna Madre by 6 am. They got to see the sunrise and to fish all morning. Everyone caught fish, but Raf caught the biggest fish, a redfish 28" long. We just ate half of him...the other half will be an afternoon snack tomorrow. Yummm he was good, and the guys really enjoyed their morning! Raf had never been bay fishing and really enjoyed it. They were taken out by Bode's Bay Fishing and Beyond, Captain Herb Bode, of South Padre Island, Texas.
This afternoon we went to Bob and Gunni's house for a Father's Day meal of delicious barbecue. Bob's son Troy and his wife Raquel, along with their three children and a niece, were there. We watched the end of the US Open, and Raf was delighted as all three of our girls called to wish him happy Father's Day. It was, as usual at Bob and Gunni's house, a wonderful day.
