Yep, we packed the itinerary full. We missed a few places, but hopefully, our friends had a great time! We got in some hiking, some kayaking, some snorkeling, some sunning and some funning.
We hiked to the highest point in the Exumas and lounged under a nice palm with beverages. The entertainment was provided by a group of 4 sloops racing to our beach with a power catamaran crew breaking out the china for a lunch. Now, that is some service! (Uno Mas needs to step up their game.) This group is sailing and camping overnight from Barreterre to Staniel Cay. No motors. Completely old-school style (Except for the catering, of course.)
Unfortunately, we missed the reef again (a personal joke between Mark and I). We thought we found a great place to snorkel off of Norman’s Pond Cay, but could not relocate the spot, so ended up doing some beach combing instead.
We snorkeled off of Leaf Cay and watched as the tour boats rolled in and had the people feed the iguanas and also let the creatures climb all over them. Eww. I for one, would not like to have to doctor THAT kind of bite. You could lose a limb.
We hiked around the Research center and checked out the Atlantic beach.
We enjoyed the Blow Hole and shelling on Boysie. The snorkeling around Square Rock was probably the best for the trip. A VERY Large Barracuda greeted us and also watched us exit.
Best of all, we saw the Green Flash again!!! This time, it was just a dot. And, of course, the star gazing and full moon rising did not disappoint.
