Going slow, slowly going

At one point today, I pulled Siskiwit close to shore to get a photo of an entire turtle family sunning on a log.

As I got back underway, a speedboat pulling a youngster slowed down to ask if I was OK. I said, “Just ease around the corner and look at the log close to shore, your daughter will love it.” They did and returned maybe a half hour later and slowed down long enough to say, “Thanks—you see more going at your speed.”
