A floating picnic table boat!
Let me begin by saying that I am not particularly fond of cats. There are many of them that roam the sidewalk in front of my office at Nanny Cay, and I think their feline army decided from early on that I was enemy number one. When I first arrived, I tried to calmly walk out my office door and one was sat squarely in the middle of the sidewalk that led to my door. When I tried politely to pass, I was abruptly greeted by her teeth, claws and fur flying from my nose. Being the kind canine I am, I did not retaliate, but the interaction left me scarred (figuratively- the spots on my nose all healed well) and to this day I try my best to avoid any contact with the feline species.
Hence my concern then, when the bipods started talking very excitedly about a spending an afternoon and evening with ‘ElectraCat.’ I didn’t know who this ‘ElectraCat’ was, nor why she was commanding so much of their attention, but I was certainly not interested in spending any time with her! The bipods loaded me in the car (something I do absolutely love!) and took me on a ride to Cane Garden Bay, one of my favorite beaches. Once we arrived on the beach I met up with some of my other beach friends and proceeded to dig for sand crabs while the bipods all kept talking about this ‘ElectraCat.’ I looked high and low but I could not see hide nor hair of anything remotely resembling the feline species.
Next thing I know, the bipods are sitting on what looks like a giant floating picnic table and they keep referring to her as the ‘ElectraCat.’ I had no idea what this contraption was, or what part of its origin was feline! It was a large picnic table connected to two floating pontoons with a solar powered engine on the back. It appeared to have all the bells and whistles the bipods require for one of their boisterous evenings out, including a BBQ grill, built in coolers, Bluetooth speakers and even underwater LED lights. I still did not see anything that looked like fur or teeth, so I figured I would let my guard down and join the bipods on this ‘ElectraCat’ since any type of bipod party usually ends with me getting table scraps of some kind!
After spending an entire evening with ‘ElectraCat’ my opinion of felines has definitely changed – what a great time! We traveled all around Cane Garden Bay, grilled out some of my favorites (including BBQ chicken!), watched a beautiful sunset, and I got to enjoy watching the bipods make fools of themselves as they consumed lots of beverages from the built-in cooler and sang terribly off-key to their favorite ipod songs. The best part of the night was when we went over a reef on the ‘ElectraCat’ and the LED lights let us see the underwater world come alive. We saw huge tarpon, sea turtles, and even a baby spotted eagle ray!
In listening to the bipods, it seems that this ‘ElectraCat’ is not a single entity, but there are many ‘ElectraCats’ and they are soon going to be taking over the US! I am still not quite sure what the feline component is, but ‘ElectraCat’ is definitely a fun evening on the water. Apparently the bipods are willing to give rides to anyone who stops in Cane Garden and wants to hop on. Please go pay them a visit, and who knows, I might even be hanging out on the beach and hitch a ride with you on my new feline friend, ‘ElectraCat!’
