Cape Photo of the Day - Photo #296

Well, the world did not end today, but we had our own version of a zombie apocalypse in our home. For our Christmas Mother-Daughter Book Club meeting, we went with a Zombie Christmas theme (needed a short book, and A Christmas Carol of the Living Dead was just the trick - not recommended as anything approaching good literature, but kind of fun for an Xmas party theme). The great thing about decorating gingerbread men as zombies is that if an arm, leg or even head falls off in the process, it just makes for a better zombie. The other bonus is that we get to eat the zombies instead of them eating us. :)

Cape Photo of the Day - Photo #294

As we returned from our morning of fishing in the Potomac, the fog cleared just enough for us to finally see land. It was a really peaceful and calm scene with the flat water and fog hovering just about it.

Cape Photo of the Day - Photo #293

How about that sunrise this morning? Really spectacular. I find it a little painful to appreciate wonderful things in the past few days, but they are also more significant and meaningful at the same time.

Cape Photo of the Day - Photo #292

Any of you who have enjoyed a Chesapeake fishing charter or who run a sophisticated set of lines off of your own fishing boats probably recognize this rig. We were out today with Captain Greg Buckner of Miss Susie Charters at the mouth of the Potomac. We usually charter with the Miss Susie out of Solomon's, but the Maryland rockfish season ended this past weekend. Driving an extra hour south to Point Lookout put us in legal Virginia and Potomac waters for an early morning of fishing.

We were also in a lot of fog! The planar boards (visible in the picture) were about the outer limit of our visibility. The water was flat though; it was pretty warm for mid-December on the Bay; and the fish were biting! We came home literally with a boatload of rockfish - several of them over 40 inches. If anyone is looking for a good fishing charter, we have always had great luck with Captain Greg Buckner on the Miss Susie. You can find him on Facebook. Or here's his number with a big plug for his charter:
