Hi Everybody, Welcome back!!!
We’ve just finished up another week of summer time Fun and Adventure around the Lake Worth lagoon, and what another wonderful week we’ve had!!! We spent the week boating up and down the intra coastal waterway, snorkeling the Rock Garden, exploring the Big Sandbar, fishing my secret spots and catching tons of fish non stop! Another day we watched manatees eat sea grass all around the boat and later that day we had a ball watching a few bottlenose dolphin frolic just off our bow. We took a quick run offshore to observe some loggerhead and green sea turtles in crystal clear water and came upon a sargassum seaweed line that had mahi mahi swimming up and down it everywhere!!! They were literally jumping out of the water all around us!!! We cast out a line with a plug on it and before you knew it, Neil had one in the boat!!! Way to go!!!
During the week, we caught swimming crabs under rocks, found sea urchins and starfish galore, and topped that day off finding a big horseshoe crab cruising around in the shallows. We found fighting conchs, beaded starfish, hermit crabs and watched a school of reef squid change all sorts of colors right before our eyes! We caught pufferfish bare handed and found some really cool scrawled cowfish, trunkfish, puffers, pipefish and juvenile barracudas, etc while seine netting . I think the huge checkerboard puffer and scrawled cowfish were the favorites that day! In between all that, we had a blast at the Big Sandbar finding all sorts of cool things!
We ended the week having one of the very best manatee encounters I’ve ever seen!! While anchored behind Munyon Island, we had 3 manatees come right up to the the boat, lay directly against the side and roll over like they wanted their tummies scratched. Of course we had to oblige for a few seconds. For 45 minutes they just layed there and we had a ball watching them from inches away!!! It was AWESOME for everyone!!! What a way to end the week!!!
Needless to say, we had non stop FUN and ADVENTURE from start to finish and thats just the way I love it!!! I’ll let some of the pictures do the rest of the talking!!! Enjoy!!!
