A True Liveaboard

(viewed 678 times)
Stretching the capability of my phone camera somewhat, I just managed to captures this terrapin basking in the sun. This one is about the size of a tea plate but I have seen larger.

I stepped off the boat last night to see a lone female glow worm lighting up the grass immediately surrounding her for all she was worth, in an attempt to attract a mate. An amazing sight that emoted a warm feeling much like the old Disney animation of the glow of a candle.

Go to Channel 16 UK on any CB radio to join in and get the ball rolling, or go to to find out more. What a great way to communicate with each other along the cut.
