What a FUN excursion!! Thanks for posting the picture of the days' events, Glenn. We have thought about Vero, but weren't sure if we'd like it. (We are NOT a hang-out-at-the-beach-all-day-and-do-nothing kind of family.) I am super impressed with all of the activities they offer. Now you got me thinking about a nice vacation to Vero!!

It was a fun morning Kelly. Actually, the cast member (dang, I just realized I missed another joke I could have put into the chapter -- something like she puts the cast in cast member. Hmm, maybe it was better without it!) was worried about the same thing. She warned the boys to keep their lines away from it because she really didnt want to have to try to get a hook out of its mouth.

Yes, its always more fun when you have some success. Some people like to go fishing just to get outside, but I know it would have been disappointing without a catch or two.

Maryann was sure kept busy.

Im sure wed have never found it if we didnt have the fishing class. It was a fun morning. Im glad the weather improved!

Anyway, it is in the mountains and there is a mountain stream at the campground that always has some great rainbow trout. Well DS and several of the kids were playing in the stream one year and DH heard a commotion while they were cooking and someone comes running out to say that DS had caught a rainbow trout - BARE HANDED.

Everyone was so excited and DH was so proud I wanna say DS was 9 or 10 at the time. He and the kids were playing in the stream and a trout wandered by them and DS was able to force it towards the side of the stream and was able to get up under it and flip it up onto the bank. Therefore officially catching it bare handed.
Hes a hillbilly hand-fisher! Great story!

A good morning, for sure. Learned a thing or two, had fun, caught fish, and got to keep the pole. Cant beat that.

You are too funny! There were a couple of Judys though, so you must have adjusted them too much.

It’s amazing how much luck you can have, fishing in a stocked pond! It made for a fun time though. The CM was great with them.

There were some characters painted on the walls inside the tunnel. I think there was Peter Pan, Smee, etc. But this lame TR report didn’t take any pictures of them. Whoops.

You’re welcome Sooze. I think even the “non-beach” people could find some things to do there for a couple of days. A week would probably be too much, but a for a couple of days it could be a nice place to relax.

Finally all caught up only to get behind again.


Great updates. The only problem now is that I really want to see all the resorts. NOW.


Great details and thank you for locating the coffee. I am becoming quite addicted to having my morning coffee and after coming back from the west coast even more so.

Cool morning GB!

Love all the photos from the resort.

And I had to crack up at the Seinfeld shout out.

The fishing excursion looked like a ton of fun. Glad James had a great time.

I'm pretty sure that catching a fish bare-handed is one of those things that gets you right into the club! If you want to.

You're a ninja-poster Timmy! Trying to sneak one in while I was replying.

I'm glad you are caught up though.

No, there were actually 2 Judy's in the last chapter. Someone found them. I won't spoil it for you....go back and see if you can find them.

Another great update Glenn. The fising excursion looks like a nice activity. Great pictures and thanks for sharing. Looking forward to the shark tooth necklace activity.

I just realized I will be in the world during the Ohio State - Penn State game. I'll think of you when I am watching it at the ESPN Cafe at the Boardwalk.
