I found these travelers on Grayton Beach this summer, during a short trip west.
|Their vessel, a short piece of driftwood actually bonked me in the back of the head as I was body surfing some pretty lackluster panhandle waves.|
The crew onboard the USS Flotsam, are Pelagic Gooseneck Barnacles, or Lepas anatifera.
|I tossed their ship out into the Gulf several times, but a stiff onshore breeze returned it over and over.|
|This is where I last saw them, riding a strong longshore current to the East.|
