We went to Biloxi last week to celebrate the sale of our house (which I have yet to write about) and Charlie getting his writing project in on deadline.
It was rainy, so there was no beaching it. Charlie’s never really gotten over missing his Penn Yan, so I’m always on the lookout for a boat-related activity to soothe his longings. For giggles I suggested a 70 minute “family fun” shrimping cruise for $15. Although I mostly did it a joke it was a really nice way to spend an hour, where they show you how they test for shrimp and explain their migratory patterns (really-who knew?), etc.
They drag a small net along the seabed for awhile, then explain what they caught. They do this 3x a day, and clearly the seagulls have caught on, because they hooked a ride, patiently watching until the guys threw what they’d caught back over the side and the gulls could make a dive for it all.
