When you see these dark-brown birds offshore, you know you’re really cruising. Sooty shearwaters (Puffinus griseus) rarely touch land and we reap the benefits, because their graceful flights past our boats, with wingtips grazing the waves, are awe-inspiring, beautiful displays.
This Memorial Day, remember those who were lost serving our country on the high seas in the U.S. Navy aboard PT Boats. Recently we were invited out for a ride on the only operational combat-veteran PT Boat, PT 305 in New Orleans.
