As it's now getting closer to our trip and I gathered most of the info I needed this past spring, I just remembered the pica pica and wondered if I need to get SeaSafe to put on for snorkelling/swimming in December.

I'm pretty sure this was just something that happened in the spring time, but if there's any chance that it's around in December, then I'd just as soon get the SeaSafe and not need it than not need it and have it!

Glad to see that it looks like Wilma didn't cause you all too much chaos, but no doubt a working weekend for many repairing docks and general clean up etc. I think I'd rather be doing that down there in the warm than preparing for more rain and basement flooding up here in New England!

Cheers!

What are pica pica? Water bugs are my bet... Tell me more. When do they cause the most problems?
I always learn something new on this message board!

Here's one thought on what it is (the other is that it's an algae bloom):

Here's a good discussion on timing:
