This pier is at the end of the Perla Escondita Condos. With tomorrows departure looming, I find my Yo Yo, a bag of frozen shrimp, hooks and swivels and weights.

It takes a minute to figure out how to cast. You unravel your line in little loops on the deck, gently pick up the weights in your right hand while holding the Yo Yo in your left. Then, you cast the weights as far as you can and move the Yo Yo in the direction of your cast so the line doesn’t snap and whip the bait off. The weights take the bait to the bottom.

I am not catching today but one of the ladies picked up by a tour boat snaps my picture.

Posts remind me of dipping a spoon into the sea and scooping up a slice of life.

When and where you decide to dip the spoon is up too you, but you are playing the life game and hope you will be back tomorrow.
