The wave heights in the Atlantic did not die down as anticipated, so another rough day on Lynyard.
We took the dinghy to the northern part of the island. Checked out the beaches and found some cool coves.
Did some snorkeling and Angie found blue, lavender and amber sea glass. The anchorage has turned over about 12 boats so far since we have been here and some local fishermen have built a tarp camp on one of the beaches. We thought they might be setting up a conch ceviche stand for all of the boaters. Nope. As we get further down the Abacos, the conch salad price has gone from $5 a lb to $15 a pound. These guys could get $20 a lb, easy, with the size of some of the cruising boats pulling in here.
Our first up close 3 ft turtle sighting while snorkeling back to the boat happened. (We believe it was a loggerhead, it had a HUGE head.) Angie also saw a few anemones, and a couple of baby spotted drums, besides the Angie fish (A Fairy Basslet). When we first started diving 18 years ago, we kept seeing this cute little purple and yellow fish, so it was named the Angie fish…until we acquired the Reef Fish ID books. Who knew, even back then, that our colors would be purple and yellow?
