Speaking of migrations... We stepped out the back door of the boat Saturday and were very surprised to see a swarm of bees had decided Istaboa was a good place to hang out.
They hung around on the deck for a while then decided the kayaks on the upper deck was a better site for their plans. My Pop was a hobbyist bee keeper for a while when I was a kid so I had seen this type of thing before. They are pretty much harmless at this stage unless threatened. So keeping with our, "friends of honest and harmless creatures attitude", we let them be. (no pun intended)
We are hoping they soon find a better place to do their thing or we must have them removed by a bee keeper. They are in short supply these days, for some reason, and we understand they are quite important partners in the local agriculture industry.
But, we don't think they'll enjoy going to sea. So, bees, be gone!
The days are hot but, in the end, we're rewarded with some beautiful fall sunsets.
