Anniversary Gift

My wife bought me this handsome decanter for my scotch and had it engraved with my initials, she also bought me some whiskey stones (in the glass) to chill it but not water it down.

Appalachian Trail Hike

Hiked 22 miles on the Appalachian Trail On the West Virginia/Virginia line. We hiked up to 3,800 feet then across a ridge line and back down. The first day we had to cross a river to get to the trail on a swing and pulley rig, then up hill for a few miles, across the ridge, camped in a shelter, then seven miles down to the valley below to complete the 22 miles.

No sharks

 So I never caught any sharks when we went to South Carolina a a couple of months ago but I did catch some fish.  
Me on the left carrying all my gear;
And on the right fishing from the pier with my first fish, a silver mooney.

Not sure what these two are called but caught them down by the jeti (big rock wall). The big one down there is called an oyster toad fish because they use there big mouth and teeth to crack oysters.
