Swarms

Of dolphins:
Which we like.
And bees:
Which we don't like...
Each day we've sailed we've seen huge pods of fast moving dolphins. The waves they create make them look like a river as they travel at high speed in long tightly packed groups. One pod appeared to be a mile or more in length and was a dozen or more dolphins in width.
The bees are another story. We're seeing similar numbers of these creatures--but there is nothing endearing about having a thousand bees show up on your boat in search of water...
Making screens has just jumped in priority.

Oh that photo of the bees made my skin crawl. eeek! Good thing nobody is allergic, right? Yes, screens! And get Charlie to swat a few and earn his keep ;)

I'm deathly allergic. I carry an epi-pen around my neck. Our *entire* boat looked like his dish at one point.
