They were more just swimming around playing it seemed. A few of them actually did the flipper thing where they danced on there tails and flapped there front flippers. It really was a cool site to see that many in one small area at the same time.



You lucked out to be there at the right time. You have to plan on going more often ;)

Let's hope he got outa dodge befor the winds blew down there In florida. I read on another forum that someone deliberately sunk his boat to protect it from the storm wind and water.

I can't see where sinking your boat would protect it? There was plenty of advance warning to have got your boat off the coast before the storm ever got close. I never understood why people on the coast will hunker down rather than evacuating. I had several sibling that rode it out and one that came to Ohio. The ones that stayed were fortunate but went awhile without power but at least their toilets flushed :lol: :lol: :lol:

People do the strangest things. Saw on tv where a group of boats were tied off to the short tidal trees way back in small 15 foot wide water ways away from the coast but nothing was said about sinking them.

Puerto Rico is really in a world of hurt. Can't understand why people are not boiling water to prevent disease related to water borne pathogens. It will be interesting to see how they recover over there.
