The Boat Trip

Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

It all started out innocently enough, booking a three hour trip on the Sweet Liberty, a 53 foot catamaran.

Out of the Naples harbor we motored. Past exclusive homes for the exclusive people. Rich - filthy rich - for those who do not understand. The sun was hot, the women hotter, not that I was looking.

Our trip took us 5 miles down the coast to deserted Key Wadin Island. They must have named it that because you can easily "wade in".  It was there that one of the ladies I was with discovered shells, and I mean, lots of them.

Back to the boat we loaded, not one, but three bags of shells, to be used to supplement our income, I am sure, in some way or another.

Making our way back from this exciting, (yawn) voyage, the Captain exclaims, "we should be seeing some dolphins soon". And as if on cue, Flipper shows up. What a delight!

Onward, we cast off the key, and headed out to sea. Well, it wasn't exactly out to sea, as we could easily have swum ashore at any point, but the intent was there to sail. So back up the coast we struggled, making about 5 mph, and did I mention, it was hot?

By now our stomachs were growling for lunch, and after docking, we headed to the local restaurant on the Wharf. Out of respect for Flipper.... I ordered sushi.
