Gone Fishing!

Well I hope to...I'm actually going to New Orleans for the Authors After Dark Convention and will then be staying an extra few days with my friend.  I love deep sea fishing and I've always wanted to try it in the Gulf of Mexico.  I like to discover one new thing each time I go to the Crescent City and maybe I'll be able to check this off my list during this visit.  Unfortunately, the tours that I've found are upward of about $200.00!  I'm hoping once I get down there, I'll be able to scout something out or, it will have to wait until next time. 

I'm kind of worried about the heat, since I don't do well in hot, humid weather.  I basically hide in the summer.  However, I am looking forward to hanging out with some blogger buddies, meeting admired authors and soaking up the atmosphere in the French Quarter.

I'm not sure how much I'll be able to blog during my vacation, but I do hope to get some reading done, take lots of pictures and have tons of stuff to report once I get back. 

Meanwhile, enjoy this video I took on my last trip to NOLA.

I hope you have a blast in New Orleans! I'm trying to just be happy for you rather than super jealous. ;) Good luck with the fishing, maybe you'll get a good discount, just check for cancellations! I'm not usually one for fishing, but I've deep sea fished a few times in Maryland and had a blast, although I never kept any of the fish (seems every year we do it the fish we catch don't make the size grade!). Just as well, because I'm not a huge fan of fish... crabbing is more my style (and taste!). Hope it's not too hot, hope you have a blast, and who knows, maybe you'll end up sharing a cab with another beloved author! ;)
