The Stunning Attwood Bay
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The huge, shallow Attwood Bay - some maps spell Atwood, we'll stick with Attwood
 
 
 
 
Susan (Nancy Dawson), ashore for a beach walk
 
 
 
 
Michelle (Mi Amante - far right) exploring the white sand
 
 
 
 
We passed the girls out wandering whilst we spuddled on Baby Beez. The shallow lagoon behind the harbour - a baby mangrove
 
 
 
 
 
We went to find out what the seemingly 'black line' was - thousands of urchins - the water about three feet deep
 
 
 
 
Heading back out toward Beez, the very shallow water took on a silvery colour
 
 
 
 
The entry we used yesterday shows sharp edged coral, millions of years in the making
 
 
 
 
The opposite side, we passed the mushroom rock that had been on our left as we entered, today complete with surf
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
 
 
Next we anchored Baby Beez and went for a snorkel to see the biggest Lionfish, we have ever seen, Queen Angelfish and loads more
 
 
 
 
 
Well as Julie's maiden name was Attwood, out came the dolphin we were kindly given by Carolyn as a keepsake on Beez Neez. Julie had bought him on a holiday to Mexico (one day we hope to get his picture there too). Here he is sitting on the side of Beez with the beautiful coloured water behind him. We have aboard a tiny flower arrangement that has a piece of ribbon from Julie's bridal bouquet and a little gypsophilia, we took a tiny piece each and set it free on the water. We lost Julie three years ago in May, but she is with us as a shiny star, forever - we can hear her giggle at our choice of star.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
ALL IN ALL JULIE'S PLACE
