Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

I have been adopted. Went offshore sailing yesterday, the winds and waves were about double what NOAA predicted, rough day, but still enjoyed the five hours I spent out there in the beautiful, azure-blue waters beyond the reef.

When I returned, I noticed my freshwater hose was in the water next to the bulkhead. The adoptor, apparently, loves the taste of fresh water, dragged my hose off the bulkhead, and figured out how to turn the hose on for a short blast. He/she (can't tell) tips the scales at about 800 pounds and is approximately 9 feet long, and loves when I give it a blast of freshwater from the hose. It rolls over and allows me to blast it's belly with freshwater, which apparently washes off loads of tiny parasites. Here are some photos of my newfound friend.

Every day is another day of fun in Paradise,
