Happy Place of the Day. This is Kent Zimmerman, otherwise known as Pa Z. Giving him a hard time is one of our favorite hobbies. We have to: he lives 50 yards from the ocean, "works" as a ranger to earn free golf, takes three naps a day with his yellow Labrador and gets to drown bait off his dock whenever he wants. He's also a kick ass cancer survivor, volunteer firefighter, grill master extraordinaire, and (with my undying gratitude) takes great pains to teach his step-grandson how to be a man and not a bonehead. Kent found the Shortcut to His Happy Place the other day by catching this gorgeous trout near Kitty Hawk. Way to go - now quit showing off.
