I don’t mind eels except as meals.




I always love that Ogden Nash poem. But truthfully, I like eel as meals. Anyway…

Today, we climbed Barnegat Light House. After climbing 217 steps up (tiring) and down 217 steps (nauseating) … and then, we took a walk around the park. We saw some very tough-looking guys laughing and fishing.

One of the kids pointed to a fishing pole. What’s that snake doing? He asked.

Andrew answered, “That’s not a snake. That guy caught an eel.”

One guy with a long, long ponytail turned to us smiling broadly. He was holding back a laugh.

“The eel is the bait,” he said.

Boy did we laugh!

    We climbed Ol’ Barney a few years ago. Jenne’ carefully counted each and every step on the way down.

    No, 217, I said.

    I read the sign on the way in 🙂
