Jelly Fish Goes Sailing

Jelly Fish -- after a very disappointing showing in the Tobay Tri (see story and pictures below) -- decides to go sailing and sets his sights on viewing the famous Huntington Lighthouse. To make sure he can find it, he carefully plots his route. No haphazard sailor our Jelly Fish!

"What a grand view of all the boats in Huntington Harbor" declares Jelly "and, its a lot safer up here on deck than down in the water with all those nasty propellers!"

Time to man the tiller and get this sailing adventure on the way!

"Whew" says Jelly, "Sailing is hard work! It must be time for a beer break!"

"Look, there it is! The Huntington Lighthouse which was originally built in 1857 on the tip of Lloyd's Neck to assist ships in finding shelter" exclaims Jelly. And you thought he wouldn't be able to find. Not only did he find it, he knew more about it than you probably did! It just goes to show you -- you can't underestimate Jelly Fish.

Well, that was a great trip. Now its time for Jelly to man the ropes and head this sailing ship back home.

"All in all" Jelly says, "it was a really relaxing day. And I needed it after that un-called for DQ in the Tobay Triathlon."
