Rockaway Beach after dinner at Nick’s invites me to watch the man casting and recasting a line out into the surf. Ocean fishing. Things I’ve never thought of doing.
Some casts are smooth and long, but immediately the fisherman reels the line back in. If there’s nothing, except the bait, the man casts again. If a small fish returns with the bait then the man walks it over to a bucket.
The sand smushes underfoot and the wind and surf sound like thinking about new things.
