Fish On! Mark Destino and “Friend” Laura from Cleveland Represent! At Bodin Historic Photo

Fred Bodin writes-

Fish On!

This is Laura, a native of Cleveland, Ohio, and first time visitor to Gloucester, hosted by colleague and friend Mark Destino (https://goodmorninggloucester.wordpress.com/2012/08/15/who-is-this-dude/). They both work at Cleveland’s Ronald MacDonald House. She and Mark went out on his Uncle Jimmy’s (Destino) boat "Tuna & Egg" (named after a popular sandwich from Destino’s Subs in Gloucester). Her first lifetime cast into salt water resulted in a trophy striper measuring 34". She yelled: "Fish On!" I say: "Sign her up!" I’m thinkin’ she’s now a Glosta’ girl.

Mark Destino and friend Laura from Cleveland. Mark and I go way back – it’s always great to see him, and was also nice to meet Laura. He calls me "Uncle Fred." I call Mark a lucky man
