The Northeast was I'm thinking Far East....

Our 3 week road trip in June/July was amazing. We visited every state from West Virginia to Maine, plus a few others, plus Montreal and Toronto. As you can imagine, we took about 1500 pictures. I'll post them soon. But not this week, cause we're moving to China. I CAN'T WAIT!In case you're dying for more info...Mark is a Mechanical Engineer and works for Motorola. They're sending him over to work with some of their Chinese suppliers. So, duh, of course I'm tagging along. We'll be staying in Shenzhen (which is near Hong Kong). Specifically we'll be staying here. Looks nice, right? Mark's leaving on Wednesday (he's going to Korea for a week first) and then I take off on the 28th. We've been crazy busy packing the apartment for storage, getting our visas, and just trying to get ready. We're not quite sure how long we'll be there (I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a LONG time) but it'll probably be around 3 months. I'm sure we'll take millions of pictures, so hopefully blogger isn't blocked and I can upload some while we're there. Wish us safe travels! And if you've ever gone to...pretty much anywhere in Asia, and have any travel suggestions, email them to me!

Deep Sea Fishing

I've been meaning to post these pictures for a few months, since they are super sweet. Mark got to go down to Florida with Todd, Dennis (Todd's dad), Quentin (Todd's father-in-law) and Jim (one of Quentin's customers) for a deep sea fishing adventure in late May. It was a very quick trip, but they sure hooked some good one's!
First catch of the day
Ok, Todd's was a bit bigger :)
Todd was the only one to catch a sailfish; they hooked a few others, but they got away.
Quentin caught this giant Mahi Mahi...
...But Mark caught the most (he caught the other 3 shown here). And I've gotta say, from a girl who love shimp and sushi but pretty much nothing else from the sea, it really does taste better when you catch it yourself! These babies were yummy!
We thought this picture was pretty sweet. (Yes, that is a dolphin eating a giant fish.)
