I dinghied ashore to do laundry and to gather information about the Kennedy Space Center tours. I returned to the boat to do editing for this website
1830 - dinghied ashore to update the website and check email. As I approached the breakwater I saw a dog in the water. He was panting and appeared to be in distress. I was like "why not just swim for the breakwater". I called to him and tried to lead him ashore. Then someone on shore said "Man in the boat: he's ok; he's just looking for a manatee." I realised that I had to do some more quick editing to add this.
After dark, I dinghied back to the boat. As I paddled I noticed the strange green phosphorescence in the water. Someone asked about Andrea Lynn and at the same time I got a cell phone call.Prev Home Next
