Our Captain was so much fun and he said things so seriously that if you weren’t listening you might miss something extremely funny.

I took pictures and video.

Here is part of his “safety” speech.

This is video I took as we sailed and it is about 41 or so minutes.

And then some photos I took as well.

He had a story about this bird on the pole. His name is Al and he is an Osprey, which was endangered at one time. He said that they mate at any time of the year and are now coming back strong. The males and females each have their own territory and when the female is ready to mate she finds her male. The male is reluctant to mate, but the female will take over his territory since she is bigger and basically harass the male till he gives in. Once he mates, she leaves him alone. LOL.

I just can’t even imagine having this much money. He told us how one guy was renting a home for like a 21K a month or something along those lines and building his own home just down the way. He got tired of paying rent as his house was taking too long with all the changes they kept making, so he bought the house he was renting as well. Now he has 2 homes there.
