In fact, my mouth waters just thinking about dabbing that fish tail in some savory sauce and downing it with a bowl of sea water. Anyway, enough about me, here’s what’s happening on the island that is long.

NEW YORK, Aug. 24 (UPI) — Several people have reported seeing a manatee in the New York area, though confirmation of the marine mammal’s visit remained elusive.Elaine Swedish-Rimmer, 70, said she saw the big beast Friday while fishing on a floating dock in Huntington, N.Y., Newsday reported Saturday.

The creature, thought to between nine to 10 feet long, may have also been spotted in Centerport, N.Y., Saturday as a several witnesses claim to have seen a manatee-like animal in area waters. Manatees are not native to the area, though experts say it isn’t unheard for one to travel so far north, Newsday reported.
