Another question. A while ago I realized the word "lease" in lease water is spelled differently but I forgot what it is. Does anyone know the correct spelling (and maybe pronunciation) for the nasty black water in canals next to cane fields?
My Dad said it's called Lease Water. I'm guessing that it's water that has no RELEASE, stagnant water. The canals don't lead to the ocean, so the water is stagnant, dirty and stinky. Like the canals in Venice, I rode in the Gondolas but squeezed my nose.
