“I’m just climbing down some rocks and trying to get in the water. It could get ugly.”
“We’re at Baywood Park, at Biscayne Bay and Northeast 72nd Street,” he says. “It’s a quiet little park. There’s really nobody here. It’s a little tricky getting into the water though, because there’s a seawall here, and there’s some jagged little rocks that I’m gonna have to climb down.”
Terence will spend the next four days traveling the canals of Miami-Dade County.
WLRN’s Danny Rivero and Dan Grech were there to see him off.
“It’s funny,” Danny says. “As soon as the boat hit the water, the sun came out.”
“That’s actually true,” Dan recalls. “It’s much warmer and much less windy than it was even five minutes ago.”
“Yeah look at the sea, actually,” Danny says. “It’s getting calm. Symbolic.”
He laughs, “I’m trying to be poetic.”
Dan eventually signs Terence off saying, “Godspeed, Terence. We’ll be following along.”
