Second Day from Sea

The first port of call ...

Today's shore excursion is the Glass Bottom Boat. There were loads of colorful fish out on the reef.

And some more ...

And even a barracuda came for a snack. Here he is racing through the swarming school of fish.

And the star of the show was this reef shark. This picture isn't very good, but it's the only camera I have ...

Afterwards, enjoyed some local refreshments (which wasn't bad with a nice 8 year old Rum) ...

Then back to the ship to get ready for dress up evening. Discovered that most of my clothes that I had carefully packed were wrinkled. Naturally in this floating hotel, there aren't any irons or steamers in the rooms, but they do have special "launderette" rooms for people to do laundry or iron their clothes. Unfortunately for me, everyone else had the same problem. So now to get that ironing done and get dressed for the evening.

I have a suit and tie, but that is going to be a story for another time.

Ah Skeeter, it sounds lovely to be sailing around in the Bahamas and getting dressed to the 9s for the Captain's party. Have so much fun we will all be very envious of you for sure.

I noticed from your glass boat picture that the coral reef is not healthy and choked with sand.. is that's how it is for the entire reef there? Tsk tsk..

Nice, sharks and baraccuda! I've not encountered any sharks in my dives before but I had baraccuda swam my way a couple of times before.

Enjoy!



:)
