My radar was chirping loudly on Monday morning.  But when I looked outside, I couldn’t see a ship.  I rowed all day.  Then I noticed a ship.

It was coming closer. There was no response to my call on the radio.  So I turned my boat around.  I called them on the radio once more. This time there was a response.  I asked if they could see my boat on their radar screen.  They replied, “Let me turn on the radar and I will tell you.”  I couldn’t believe they had no radar!

I just hope the ships stay clear of my boat.  I don’t have much control over that.

On Wednesday, a large earthquake hit the country of Peru.  An alert was issued for huge waves.  I should not feel them out here. 

I saw flying fish yesterday.  Today, 30 or 40 of them flew out of the water.  They flew 30 or 40 yards and went back into the water.  Then the first mahi mahi jumped out of the water.  Mahi mahi are blue, green and yellow fish.

I went fishing.  The only thing I caught was a small piece of net.  There must be so much litter in the ocean.  Nets are bad for turtles and dolphins.
