That blog article to me was what really needs to be true for a marriage in general. Other than the word "admiral" it wasn't anything special far as boating.

Some friends caught dolphins off their bow with their Go Pro video-taped to a boat hook & put in the water. I thought it was an amazing view of the dolphin.

Witty writing . I had a few good laughs . I think not just the fairer sex would enjoy the read.

Hi Trix
Welcome to CF

A little fear is healthy LOL and keeps the adrenaline pumping.
Little is ever gained without making mistakes along the way, so embrace those, but hopefully don't repeat them .

Anything that "Toast" writes is insightful, poignant, hilarious: Toast Floats. One of the few blogs I have read start to finish (after my husband did the same and recommended it ).

It can take a few days as it is run by a forum member (not admin).

Re: For Women, by Women

Ladies,

Might I mention here that any prospective Mermaids applicants are required to fill out their personal profile and engage in general forum chat via posts to establish credibility prior to acceptance

Thank you
