Turtle in Paradise Chapter 7

This is where Slow Poke's former first mate got bit by a shark - a shark named Margaret.

Actually, this is the location of the original Sloppy Joe's.  It moved across the street.

Slow Poke and Ollie really know what they are doing on a ship.  It says, "They don't even need to talk to each other; they're like the sailing version of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers doing a dance number." Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers were famous for their movies and especially their dancing.  They were excellent partners when they danced.  If Slow Poke and Ollie were like that, then how well would you say they worked together on the ship?

A cistern is a place that stores water. It catches rainwater and stores it to be used later. It is especially important in dry areas and areas like the Keys where there is a lot of salt water, but not too much fresh water.
