We pretty much had the Gulf of Mexico all to ourselves today! Smooth seas, a nice breeze and a great looking captain who could ask for anything more.
Well, I could and would like to ask for some dolphins ...where were they today? A day without dolphins is like a day without sunshine. We saw them off in the distance but they never came to swim along with us. Hopefully tomorrow will be a dolphin day!
We did certainly see our fair share of crab pots today - they where everywhere. Luckily we managed to dodge them all. Sometimes they are in a line and you can follow that line but then sometimes there is no pattern and they are scattered as if the fisherman just threw them overboard. For the life of me I cannot figure out why they come in colors that blend in with the water or sunshine. Why are they not bright pink or neon green?
