We all wanted to go into the water, so I decided to be the first. It was so refreshing. Then Chuck and I donned our fins and mask and swam out to the closest reef. It wasn’t long before Rick and Bev joined us. It was a fairly large reef but not like the reef at Sandy Cay. It wasn’t as clear either because the waves had the bottom churned up. We still had a great snorkel. Rick and Bev ventured out to a further reef. I didn’t want to go any further. My left arm still bothers me after I hurt it while moored in Annapolis. I knew I couldn't rely on it if I had to swim into a strong current. Chuck didn’t go because his strap on his mask came loose and he was fooling around with that. Rick and Bev said the water was clearer and there were more fish! We had a relaxing walk and sit-down on the beach.
Once we felt we had enough sun, we packed up and walked to the Hope Town Harbour Lodge and its Reef Bar and Grill...out back near the ocean. We rinsed our sandy feet at their foot faucet and ordered a drink at the bar. We then took our bags to a table and thought we were going to get a fresh water dip in the pool…wrong! It was filled with salt water. Ha ha! Boat showers on the transom tonight! We enjoyed our swim and our heavenly surroundings until we noticed it was going on 4:00. If we didn’t get back to the boat soon, our outside showers will feel might cool.
