Starting to get on island time
It had beautiful corals and sea fans. There were big crevices and caves for fish to hide in. There was not a ton of fish, but we saw a nice variety including a huge lobster. Too bad lobster season ended a week or so ago. We forgot our camera so Arthur and I hiked back this morning while the kids slept in then ate their breakfast. They are so cute calling us on the VHF when they get up. The pictures that we took do not do justice to the color of the water.
A big cold front is coming down from Canada and bringing strong winds and rain late tonight. We ducked into Hope Town to wait out the weather. It's a very quaint little hole in the island that is absolutely packed with boats. Around the lagoon are cute little cottages painted bright colors. We haven't had time to explore the island yet. When we arrived we were visited by another cruising boat with 2 children. Charlotte Ann has 2 lovely children aboard, Dylani age 9 and Mitchell age 7. Rivers was thrilled to play with a girl her age and Stephen enjoyed playing with the little boy.
