It was a great afternoon/evening. My crew and I are really proud of our boat and the recent improvements! We love showing off our new deck and our guests are appreciative of the new snorkeling equipment. My favorite is the new toilet! :)

Dolphins too!! We're getting some spectacular sunsets these days with the partly cloudy skies. It's the "cotton candy" clouds all around that are my favorite. Thanks again for joining us!
