Fernando and I had Part One of our anniversary date last Sunday. We ended up downtown at Montrose Harbor, where, despite the cloudy gloom, I enjoyed the view from behind the lens, and Fernando enjoyed the prospect of catching a few fish.
We didn't do much talking, but Fernando explained that he can fish all afternoon without saying much at all. I think this is the only time he doesn't talk. It was a peaceful afternoon of spending time together.
At one point, a young boy plopped his fishing gear and a bucket down right next to us. He got his bait ready and threw in his line. He was not shy, and was soon chatting with Fernando (okay, what is it that people of all ages find so inviting in a dark, linebacker-sized bearded man??). Generous man that he is, Fernando helped the boy hook his bait, and even gave him a bobber and a weight for his line. Was that boy ever excited!
I enjoyed watching all the sailboats glide across the water, while weekend life hummed along just beyond the shoreline.
All in all, it was a good day.
