First, "Dances with Reef Squid;" now...
Now she's "snorkels with turtles." We swam with this little guy for 10 minutes or so at Crashboat on Thursday. We been swimming with this guy before; I found pictures of him from February when we went snorkeling in the same area with our friends Marty and Anne. I''ll put pictures from both days up on Flickr.
Thursday was a beautiful snorkeling day - good water visibility and very little current. By Friday morning, when I went snorkeling at "our" beach at Shacks, the current was rippin' and visibility had dropped considerably. But it's good to get in the water and swimming against the current is better than a workout in one of those "endless pool" exercise things.
There still hasn't been much in the way of waves for the surfers (except for one day that I totally missed). It's been pretty small and really windblown. Everybody's hoping for a good swell todayfrom a storm off the East Coast of the U.S. The winds have been strong - 20 mph+ all day everyday. Kite surfers are lovin' it but they'd like to have some waves to play on too. There's been too much wind for us to go fly our sport kites or to try to take pictures from the kite. I've got a few new kite surfing pictures posted on Flickr as well.
