Lobster and Iguanas
We have been having so much fun that in the evenings I’ve been too exhausted to blog and in the mornings our adventures begin immediately leaving me no time. Life is so hard!We left Nassau after one last trip to the straw market so that the Nell’s could see it,
and motor sailed 32 nautical miles across to Exuma, with our first land fall at Allen Cay…Island of the endangered iguanas.
These iguanas are extra special because this is the only place in the world that they can be found. They have lots of character and reminded us of little dinosaurs.
The creatures had a blast and half trying to get as close as they could with their GoPro’s.
While I sat conversing with them, a beautiful little bird made itself comfortable on a branch right next to me.
At one point it began to rain, and everyone made a bee line to the water and swam as it poured. I stayed on land huddled over my camera so it didn’t get wet.
When we were done at Allen Cay we hopped over to Norman’s Cay where there was supposed to be an airplane wreck to dive. We set out in the dinghy in search for it, and though we didn’t find it, we did find another kind of treasure…
Chad and Danny have become quite the amazing lobster hunters. I usually dive around to find them and carry the goodie bag while they spear them.
Last night for dinner we enjoyed quite the lobster feast along with creamy lemon garlic pasta and candied carrots. Life is good on the water and we are so grateful to be here.
