Transcript of "Memories from the gulf of mexico"

  1. 1. Louisiana Memoirs from the Gulf of Mexico Just Me and a Crab Walking through the warm white sand on Cape San Blas, I leave my imprints on the beach, I look to my left, I listen to my right and nothing, I see and hear nothing at all accept Beauty…the sound of the waves rolling on to the shore, shuffle of a crab leaving the only other set of imprints and the sound of a seabird at it passes me by, and the sensation of the balmy Gulf breeze. I am amazed. I see no other human being for as far as my eye can see. I see the sun setting. Have You Ever Harvested Fruits From the Sea? On another day, in the bend of the Cape the water is crystal clear. You can spot the sea grass swaying in the water. I catch a blowfish in my net and watch it scammer away as it deflated. Then, I reach down to pick up a conch shell…Yes! This will be so yummy in a fresh conch salad. Now let me grab that crab with my net…this will be just perfect for dinner. Time to dive…you see the world so differently underwater…the scallops take on an iridescent glow as they rest, floating in the sea grass. I reach out and grab one, and then another, and another and place them in my bag, clear my snorkel and go down for more.
