Staniel Cay

Jan. 13/10

One of the things that make paradise so tolerable is having playmates. The people we have met along the way have everything to do with why we enjoy this life. We all come from different walks of life but we love what each has to bring to the table and of course we all have sailing in common.....We all live on cramped vessels needing constant maintenance and have nothing but the weather controlling our every decision....LOL.

Today we are playing with our friends Pat and Lynn and since they have been here before, they know of the best places to play. We just came back from the coolest, most spectacular snorkelling we have ever experienced. Here at Staniel Cay there is a reef/cave called “Thunderball Grotto” and it is the location used in two James Bond movies.

The many types of coral formations were like nothing we have ever seen before with their vivid colours and fascinating shapes. We swam through crevices and into a large cave teeming with fish of every description. Unfortunately I am finding that there is a trick to underwater photography. I haven’t quite got a handle on it and most of my pictures didn’t turn out like I would have liked. I’ll keep trying though. For now you will have to take my word for it….It was spectacular.
