  4. To answer your question: yes - I can see the remora! Didn't know what it was at first - had to look it up after you mentioned it! Didn't know the name in english! But google is so helpful! :)

    Btw, this "Turtle" has started a new blog, "La Dulse Vita", in honour of her new Bay of Fundy home. Names are changed, but I've brought my blogroll with me!
