Winter Fishing

If we are lucky enough to have a sunny Sunday without wind, my husband loves to go fishing yearround. As do lots of Molfettans. Anywhere you go along the seafront, you'll see men with their rods and tackleboxes. Those lucky enough to have a boat can venture a bit farther from shore, but the others seem happy just the same to fish from the breakwater.

Yesterday's fishing expedition yielded exactly zero fish...but I think this is a case where it's not necessarily the result, but the process that's important. It would be nice to have caught some fish, but it was just as nice to be out in the boat in the fresh air and sun!

So true! Glad you had a lovely day out.

Those rocks on the shore are awesome. Is that natural? Not the rocks, I mean, but their being there in the first place.

You're right, it was important to be out in the boat and in the sun.
Saretta, what beautiful "glasses 2009" in you portrait in the sidebar! :)

No, Hilda, those are breakwaters. They are immense concrete blocks that deflect the waves so they don't pound directly on the shore.

Pietro, why thank you!

It takes a certain amount of maturity to appreciate the process and not always focus on the end result. A lesson I still need to learn sometimes.
