Is out there this afternoon as my wife and I await a bunch of rain tonight from Hurricane Ian. We rented a beach house at Emerald Isle, NC, for a month. We have been coming here for over 50 years, and in many ways, each visit gets better. Maybe it is just a layer of fresh paint on a fading memory, but it still shines.
The waves are churning with whitecaps as far as the eye can see. The birds are frantically feeding in the choppy surf. The fisherman has been out there almost all day long. I haven’t seen him catch anything but I admire his determination. He is casting a shiny lure into the wind and surf while wading into staggeringly treacherous footing.
I used to be that man. I caught the best fish I ever caught exactly like that.Published in
