    Good morning everyone! Just thought I’d share 2 nice experiences with yaz.

     Helo Flyover:

       I had a nice boating weekend with my family and fiancé this weekend We hit up BeerCanIsland in Miami for 2 days.   On the way to beer can Island from Ft.Lauderdale, while underway,  heading south about a mile offshore, we  had a nice little flyover by a Dolphin helo. It was heading South also, only about 50 yards or so off the beach. I pointed it out to my fiance. As soon as I did that, he turned to port and started  heading our way. He flew right above us, very close. He then came off to our port side. I saw the airmen in the window and waved, he waved back, and he was on his way. That was a very cool experience. My parents and fiance loved it as well.

      3 cool coasties:

        We got to BeerCanIsland an hour later, anchored about 5 yards from the beach and hung out with the family and neighbors, then crashed on the boat for the night. We woke up in the morning, ate breakfast and proceeded to enjoy our island day around 1030 – 1100, 3 guys came paddling up in canoes and beached next to us. They were trying to start a grill, throwing a football around, etc. They overthrew the ball once, so I picked it up and tossed it back. As I tossed it back, I noticed one was wearing an underarmour shirt that looked like it said Coast Guard on it. I asked him, and indeed it did. I proceeded to converse with them for almost 2 hours, my step dad came over there and helped them start the grill. It was very cool, as were they. 3 OS’s from STA Miami Beach. My step-dad was an OS for 12 years in the Navy, so they had some stories to swap lol. It was very nice meeting and talking to them about the Guard and other things. They we’re extremely friendly, informative and pretty damn funny. They gave me a lot of  confidence and made me want boot camp to get here even quicker!!

     

       Well, sorry for the book lol. I just wanted to briefly share a couple experiences I has this past weekend involving the Coast Guard. Have a nice day everyone> Semper Paratus
