A casual Friday afternoon beach trip to Robert Moses State park, which is the west end of Fire Island.

Wanting to go back one more time to feel that warm wave before it gets cold.
My second-time sea fishing was painful, yet rewarding by the end.
After experiencing major sea sickness from stormy weather, I was able to catch a handful amount of fish.
Altogether with Shu, a neighbor Astorian hommie, who took me to the trip, we caught over 15 fish.
Special thank to Mr. Savy, a local fisherman who was fishing right next to me.
"Pay attention!" I was constantly reminded by Mr. Savy, a Cambodia-born local fisherman, who is also a green-beret Veteran.
"Pay attention!" The word kept ringing in my ear till the following day.

Anyhow, the hard-work was paid off by the feast from local ocean, accompanied by chilled sake, and fine folks.
Would I go back soon? Uhhh, . . . Maybe.
