The long sail around the key
Bahia Honda has hooked up the long range WIFI! There is a full signal in the anchorage! Look for the obvious, bhlongrange. We use a BadBoy WIFI but some computers may be able to pick it up without an external. So Captain "K"... that means the "office" has internet now!
The Fisher King got to snorkel finally on day one.
BOY DO i HAVE A SURPRISE FOR HIM!
We didn't catch anything worth keeping during our fishing time. There is a significant amount of grass floating around this year making some of our fishing just winding in weeds.
Practice, practice, practice
Sunset day one
Day two: Started out a little late today. The Fisher King must have been tired he woke up after 10 and still acted tired. School day so he isn't thrilled anyway. After fighting a little over the school day and what he was going to wear while snorkeling I finally filled him in on the surprise.
Aeriel of Looe Key
"It was Feb. 2, 1744, when Capt. Utting came upon a suspicious-looking ship flying the French flag near Cuba. It is not clear what " suspicious " means, perhaps what was suspicious were some of the dark-skinned " Frenchmen " sailing the vessel. Utting gave orders to chase the vessel down and when his marines boarded the ship, something caught the captain’s attention. One of the men aboard the French ship was observed tossing papers overboard. The crew of the Loo was quick to scoop the contraband out of the water and when Capt. Utting read the papers, it was discovered that while the vessel was indeed flying French flags, the ship was the captured English merchant vessel Billander Betty. Furthermore, the ship was being used by the Spanish.
Capt. Utting took control of the vessel and began towing it back to Charleston. On night two of the trip, the H.M.S. Loo sailed past Cayo Hueso (Key West). Every half hour the crew dropped a sounding line to mark the water depth and around midnight, on Feb. 4, satisfied with the safety of the ship, Capt. Utting went below deck to his quarters. About an hour later, the men on watch suddenly saw waves breaking over a shallow reef system. An alarm was sounded and evasive actions were taken, but the rudder struck the reef, broke off, and the ship, unable to steer, was pounded by swells and beaten against the coral beds. She was sinking — and sinking fast. To make matters worse, a few minutes later the Billander Betty crashed behind her." If you want the whole story it was taken from here
the Fisher King goes in
His first large cuda
now he goes out, wishing he could have brought his spear
Of course his charming disposition gets him time running the charter boat with 49 aboard.
We both missed the Moray Eel some saw
