No wind so we are drifting over our anchor chain.
Anchor still good and dug in.
Only escape from the no wind heat is to swim. I started early this morning, around 8:30 am. The water is cool and clear. We keep threatening to run into the Marina for a few days to escape the heat with air conditioning and get a good nights sleep. But, the idea of being in a Marina is more distasteful then laying in our berth hot and sweaty. I might start night swimming…..wonder if there is a way to rig up a bed in the water, hmmm, I can’t help but think that might resemble a chum basket, we have bulls and Black tip sharks in the harbor :-).
Swimming down the anchor chain, this pic is taken at about 10 feet of water.
Early morning swim greets me with lots of tiny tiny friends floating in the water. I have my TG3 set on macro lens.
In the dead calm water the double reflection of our hull makes the soft growth on our bottom rather daunting to clean off 🙂
The dinghy is teeming with plant life :-()
She is such a pretty vessel, even from the bottom of the sea 🙂
Plane circling the harbor. He looks like he is having too much fun 🙂
In the heat of the day, with the sun high overhead and nary a drop of wind, scupper and I went swimming.
Scupper climbed aboard the bean bag and lounged for a while. I added the umbrella to make sure he didn’t get sun burned 🙂
Poor Brain was stuck doing boat work, but was sweet enough to take some pics of the water fun. I wish I was a mermaid.
The next morning I started to go for a swim. As I climbed down the swim ladder a rather large object swam up to me. I scrambled up the ladder and hopped into the dinghy and stuck my head in to see what it was. This poor barracuda has a big wound on his head. I did not get in the water with him but stuck the camera in the water to get this shot. Swimming with a large barracuda is one thing, swimming with a large wounded barracuda is totally another!
Brian running to shore, scupper not happy to be left behind.
