After three weeks away from the boat we are very glad to be back on what is our home for the year. Avril has a bit of a stiff neck and sports a small scar that could be the result of a tussle with a shark or pirates at the very least.......
We are currently in Deep Bay enjoying much calmer winds than before we left and some glorious sunshine. We swam and snorkelled on the wreck of a cargo ship that sank when she burst into flames in 1908 carrying a hold of tar. Now home to coral and many coloured fish, the wreck made an interesting snorkelling base. The highlight of the day was seeing a large spotted eagle ray make it’s way over the sandy bottom.
Pete became very disheartened to discover that most wildlife in the area seemed to be attached to the hull of our boat. A morning spent with the scraper sorted a little of it but it will be a challenge to clean it all off!
With great reluctance we started to plan our journey home
We guess we only have about 8 weeks left to cruise the Caribbean before starting to head back across the Atlantic. The time has gone so quickly and there is so much left to see.....
