Updates by Conrad

Conrad saw a baby spotted eagle ray in the bay, even though it is hard to see anything in the water here. He also saw a dorsal fin that could have been a large tarpon or dolphin. It's still fun to see the curly tailed lizards and iguanas that are everywhere. We haven't seen the boat lizards for awhile. They seem to come out when it rains.

Conrad finally has a tooth loose (his first). He is very excited because he has waited a long time for it to happen.

Ship shape

Conrad has been keeping his cabin and bunk ship shape because we could be leaving ANY DAY this week or next. He has been helping to lower the dinghy down (we keep it up on davits every night) and undo the plug if it fills with rain so that it can drain (we haven't forgotten to put the plug back in yet).

Mark and Conrad both jump off the side of the boat almost every day. They are practicing doing flips and dives. We are all excited to move on to a new location.

Fun at the music festival

We had fun burying Dad at the beach the other day during the music festival. It was our friend Joe's idea (he's on the left).

Yesterday we went kayaking around the anchorage. It was fun but hot.

After school activities

After school if the weather is warm, which it has been lately, we go swimming off the back of the boat. There is a life preserver tied to the back of the boat for safety. It is good exercise and fun but you can't see anything. In the Bahamas you can see everything.

Yesterday, we caught lizards and had pizza and a movie with our friends from Waterbug and our new friend from Spirit. We also got lots of goodies in the mail from Grandma and Grandpa and Nana and Grandpa. Thank you and we miss you!

Beaches and festivals

We have been spending time in Ft. Lauderdale on the boat, the beach, and one day we went to a fun festival where we played with some new friends and won a lot of prizes.

Fun with dirt

Who needs toys when you have a giant pile of sand? And trees.


Temporary aquarium

We make temporary aquariums to look at sea life we find. These are our finds on a recent trip to the beach. Mostly right now we capture slow-moving animals.
