A fun birthday filled with plenty of playtime
Reese's birthday dinner. She made her famous "fishy fish" for the kids and the rest was filled by the grown ups.
Happy 10th Reese! Lookin' good
and birthday presents (matching friendship bracelets for Kate & Reese)
No Name Cay beach....deserted except for the picnic benches, stools and hogs (which we never saw but heard about). Found our first sea biscuits on the beach.
The sailors towing the kayakers - going nowhere fast
Rescued by the (motor) dinghy...now that's more like it
A slow cloudy day
Liv's turn to try the paddle board
Same boat, different crew, different day
Heading out the cut to check out the snorkeling, which turned out to be fantastic (sorry no pictures)
Sea Cucumber at Manjack Cay.
Manjack Cay ended up being a fantastic place to explore underwater and a well protected anchorage from the nasty weather we received from the outer rim of tropical storm Andrea. We saw many things we had not seen all year. For example, the ocean floor was covered in sea urchins and sea biscuits. We saw crabs, conch, huge orange star fish, jelly fish that looked like a bubble gum bubble and tons of fish we hadn't seen before. One of them was a tiny black and white fish with horns. I turned over a sea biscuit and underneath was a fish protecting its eggs that were clinging to the underside.
This is how they ride
Another squall hit while Liv and Maggie were out sailing. Luckily there was no lightning.
