24 May Busy Bee and Crew
The day was filled with adventure, wildlife and shells. Wendy, Lori, Katie, Kim and Chablis explored with me today on Cayo Costa. We witnessed a sea turtle nest that was less than 10 hours old. (Currently 19 nests on Cayo as of today.) Two of the ladies found sand dollars for the first time. Two hard to find guadia nauticas were found much to my amazement. Other shells found were worm shells, chestnut turbines, sun ray venus, and a very rare sea horse. Wow what a find! We also did some geocatching. Kim had asked months ago to check out geocatches on Cayo Costa and gave me the lat and long. I had looked at the lat and long two months ago. It wasn’t until last week that I discovered the catch while paddle boarding an isolated location on Cayo Costa. After a fun time on the beach we ate a quick lunch on the boat. They brought me my own sandwich which was very thoughtful. I pulled the anchor and we started to make our way back to Captiva when a large pod of dolphins appeared at the bow of the boat. What a treat, the ladies enjoyed the dolphin. Many firsts and good finds were found today, you never know what the sea will give up.
