So, I hopped in the water to try to scrape some of it off.
After some scrubbing. Not perfect, but you don't want to scrub too hard because the expensive bottom paint away.
My papaya seems ripe. I've learned previously that you don't want to let these fruit go too long as rot sets in really quickly in the warm humid air.
I had a few slices - nice and mellow and sweet.
Into the fridge for a snack tomorrow morning.
Time to say goodbye to our friends from What If and Now & Zen....they are moving south and we will be moving north.
It's amazing how easily friendships form on the water! We will see them again sometime in our future travels!
