New occupant on David Ellis
06 February 2008
Yesterday, (2/6 here) Mike and I got our new deck cover (awning-type thing over the fore deck) back from the canvas shop. We decided t put it up, since it really makes things a lot cooler inside. Mike went up on the pilot house roof to do part of the attachment and discovered that a tiny little bat had taken up residence in the lines on the mast. He (or she) left last night to go out on his rounds. I don't see him this morning, but I hope he returns. They eat insects, so they are good to have around. There are other bats here as well. Out near the airport, there are fruit bats. These guys look just like Stella Luna. They are about 3 feet across, and are really fascinating.
