When guests arrive on Mattina, they may think they’re coming for a vacation full of fun and relaxation, but …
Okay, it’s true there is a lot of fun and relaxation, but we also put our guests to work.
My nephew got the fun job of checking the anchor. Even though we have a pretty good anchoring process, and we love our Rocna anchor, it never hurts to have a pair of eyes check the anchor is fully buried.
Lucky nephew. He got the good job. Others, like cleaning the galley, are not so fun.
Now I’d say I’m not a dog that’s good with words. I do better with hand signals, but I want a new term for BFF.
How can a dog have only one BFF? I have so many friends.
For instance, here’s my pal Tico. He loves to go snorkelling with his human, Dan. He’s a little too adventurous for me. I like to watch from shore.
“Don’t you know there are sharks in there?” I bark.
Tico swims farther out.
“What if Dan spears a fish and a shark arrives?” I bark.
Tico must have his ears turned off, because he’s not listening to me.
“TICO,” I howl my loudest.
You can imagine me, barking from shore, my front paws lifting off the ground, water splashing around me. I glance at Kristina, but she just laughs. All she does is laugh when I think I’m being serious and she thinks I look silly.
Finally Tico gets a little too close to Dan, hits the flipper with his nose, startles himself and turns back to the beach.
He’s safe and I can relax.
Now back to my new term. FFL. Friend For Life. That means I can have more than one. Best does imply one, and who can have only one friend?
The Aquarium is located in the Exuma island chain of the Bahamas and is a spectacular place to snorkel. It’s in a protected area, a land and sea park, making it a must see if you are cruising these islands.
This is a no take zone, meaning no spear fishing, lobster or conch hunting. We had to dig into our freezer for dinner, but the snorkelling was worth it.
