Petting Valerie the Nurse Shark

Apataki Carenage (the haul out facility) has a pet shark. It is a 6 or so foot long nurse shark that comes around near sunset hoping that Papi will feed her some scraps. When we petted it, about a week ago, it felt like old cracked leather, except wet.

Right now we have arrived in Western Washington and dropped about 50F. Even though I grew up here, and it isn't very cold in Washington, my body is not happy. Still, I do enjoy using cozy things like "blankets" and "socks" again.
