FISHING

My first fish!

One day we caught over 20 sting rays (not what we were hoping for.)

I also caught a sand bar shark!

We use the "hand line fishing" technique (no fishing pole.)

BOATBUILDING

We built a 6 1/2 foot dinghy. Here, Todd was covering the plywood with fiberglass.

It took us about 2 weeks to finish, including days where we waited for parts to dry.

We printed plans from the Internet (this is a "D4",) and ordered supplies to be sent to us in NH.

Construction was done in the garage. We had a great time with this project.

After it was complete, Todd tested it in the pool.

SEWING

I decided to make the courtesy flags, a project that unexpectedly took months to complete.

For the ~30 flags, I used nylon and courtesy flag patterns I ordered on the Internet.
