Labor Day

Thankfully, there was no labor involved today, unless you count cleaning up the kitchen and running the dishwasher.

Ran 7.99 miles...glitch on my Endomondo app as it sounded 8 miles in front of my house, I pressed the stop button.  My run was really 8 at 8.....

Luke and I planned to go fishing in  Port Jeff, but the wind gods, decided to rear their howling winds out of the east causing the LI sound to be choppy....we opted to start our morning with some fresh figs.

This day in history "The American flag is flown in battle for the first time, during a Revolutionary War skirmish at Cooch's Bridge, Maryland. Patriot General William Maxwell ordered the stars and strips banner raised as a detachment of his infantry and cavalry met an advance guard of British and Hessian troops. The rebels were defeated and forced to retreat to General George Washington's main force near Brandywine Creek in Pennsylvania."

Now we celebrate labor day.  Kyle is up early for soccer practice.  Luke and I decide to try and fish off the beach or pier at Captree State Park.

Sue picks up Kyle from practice.  We barbecue some burgers and hotdogs for lunch.

Sue heads to the mall to have Kyle's phone fixed at the apple store.

 The wind is really kicking at the beach.  Overlook pier is closed since last years hurricane....who knew ?

We manage to catch some fish at the state channel so all is not lost.  Always fun to be out fishing, even when the fish are small and the conditions not the best.

Back home we decide on Sushi for dinner.

An early night for all, with school starting up.  The clouds and cool wind a sure sign that summer is nearing an end.
