yesterday to give Squidward a run for his money. It really was a tough day. Tom wanted to be out of the house before the crack of noon. DAMN. ON a day off too. However all was not lost because he had a plan. Get on the boat, sail past Stump Pass and anchor up. Bob up and down for awhile to get that jelly fish feel, and NAP. Nothing like a mission to get the blood moving. bwahahaa! Bobbing up and down is a state of mind. No action necessary. Really. It is better than yoga. So after relaxing to the point of liquidity, we hopped out to dry off, admire the view and catch a few zzz's. So while drying, we watched all kinds of birds wheeling and dipping looking for a snack, boats were zipping by and people hanging on the beach. And there magically came a herd, pod, school (?) of manatees. Seven of them and they are HUGE languidly swimming by. No stress from them. They could've hung around and played but they seemed to have a mission. I was thinking it wouldv'e been cool to be in the water w/them but I have this idea that ICKY would've been involved so maybe it was good to admire them from afar. Of course I grab the camera, but I wasn't quick enough. By the time you hear them breathe, and then aim, they are under the water. DON'T THEY KNOW I NEED TO TAKE THEIR PICTURE???? DH ever the cheerleader for me was like THEY AREN'T GONNA POSE FOR YOU. Oh Thanks! Which, come on, I have an affinity w/the dolphin and we all know what chatterboxes they are, you'd think they'd have spread the word to all wildlife everywhere in the gulf that when I'm on the water, POSING IS A REQUIREMENT. However, I made do with photo I have. The rest of the time I spent reading and then hopped in the water again. This time I was entertained by a couple of really fat bumblebees tumbling and playing a game of tag. (I seriously don't need much entertaining lol). Then to make up for their lack of information dissemination, said chatterboxes came out to play on the way home. Of course did they make it easy??? NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Five of them jumping around - not only at five different times - but five different locations. WHAT WHERE THEY THINKING. Sigh.
