A Tropical Breeze has been booked with our wonderful guests all summer. This past Wednesday was our first gap since mid May, so we took a quick trip down to enjoy the beach and do some fishing. This picture was taken on Thursday in the St. Joseph Bay. My son, Cody and his buddy caught the fish about 1:30 in the afternoon using a pin fish as bait. They netted the pin fish just outside of Eagle Harbor and hooked the red fish about 1/4 mile out of Eagle Harbor. The fish was too big to keep but after a two hour fight to land it, they managed to get this great picture to share, before releasing it back into the bay.
While they were fishing, I spent several relaxing hours sitting on the beach in front of A Tropical Breeze. The weather was perfect!
One of the highlights of the trip for me was seeing the three sea turtle nests on the beach in front of A Tropical Breeze. Last year we didn't have any nests near our home so this was a wonderful surprise. Maybe I will be there to see them hatch.
