The Old Man and the Sea, Cape Point

I am not really a “book person,” nor have I read The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway.

I have, however, shot a couple weddings at the Hemingway House on the 4×4 beach in Carova… but that is for another blog post.

I took a few minutes this am to ride out to Cape Point just to decompress.

This “Old Man” was fishing out at the Tip of the Point by himself.

All I could think of was Old Man and the Sea.

I thought these quotes were pretty fitting.

“Fish,” he said softly, aloud, “I’ll stay with you until I am dead.”
― Ernest HemingwayThe Old Man and the Sea

“Perhaps I should not have been a fisherman, he thought. But that was the thing that I was born for.”
― Ernest HemingwayThe Old Man and the Sea

“My big fish must be somewhere.”
― Ernest HemingwayThe Old Man and the Sea

Might have to give the book a go…

What a wonderful capture. All I could think about was watching my Granddaddy as a child fish from the shore’s of the Pamlico Sound, while wondering, what my Granddaddy was thinking … watching him, fishing with him, instilled a life long treasured love for the seashore

My friend Al. 83 years young. Will be fishing with him this week, Lord willing. He is one of the best.

Hello,
Those pictures were taken of my grandfather who takes a week long trip to Hatteras every year! Those pictures are great, is there anyway they could be emailed to me? I especially love the black and white one, it’s priceless! Thanks

This man is a good friend of mine, very active in our church. He will fish anywhere, anytime when time and location permit. He is a beautiful human being! The walk out to the point now a days would stop men many years his junior!
