Eyes will shift from focusing on the eclipse to the tropical event that is forecast to cross the Yucatán and enter the Bay of Campeche later this week. Hopefully it will do as the earlier system, Tropical Storm Franklin, and have little effect on our weather.

Last weekend there was a lot of activity offshore. Sunday, my nephew and his two sons from Oklahoma joined me for a day of deep sea fishing. Our target was red snapper and before one of the guys became ill, we had five keepers in the ice chest.
