Moth Onboard

While working on the boat this morning, I noticed a visitor that was unaffected by me. It was one of the largest moths I have seen. Tristan Jones, Author of the Book “Yarns”, wrote about a sailing trip he did on the Amazon River in South America. He wrote about a swarm of moths that landed on his boat one evening and ate through all the screens and soft materials he had on his boat. His description of the crunching sounds they made is still in my memory.

    Still in Mexico until hurricane season has passed. The days are still hot. We hide out until the sun starts going down. Heat index is still in the low 100’s now. The locals say “3 more weeks of this”.
