Day started off with a semi-large invasion of ants, no hot water, no television and no promised kayak with unit and enough wind to thoroughly stir up our private little cove. Queue: several phone calls… and 10 hours later….. television now works, we have hot water, had a can of ant spray dropped off…. no kayak yet, but all in all turned out to be a great day….
Discovered a couple of new friends on the beach – then wound up going to Rum Point beach for some snorkeling – and OMG — saw some of the coolest underwater stuff I have ever seen~!!! I snorkeled the big pier at Rum Point (swimming underneath it between the pylons) and was treated to multiple large schools of fish, a stingray – who seemed quite perturbed the big fat guy was hovering over him, I stayed my ground until he started whipping his tail around ( I should say I have hand fed these things before – but in a controlled environment) and I felt the need to slide out of his way and let him be…… With the water being stirred up and not much sunshine – I didn’t bring my camera on this swim, so could not document it (but that won’t happen again) – but I showed him to my Bride – so she can vouch for me 😉 Swam through several more large schools of some very cool looking fish… dodged a couple of jelly fish… it was quite the experience – almost felt like I was on a wreck dive in amongst the pylons….. very, very cool day… on the way back, came nose to nose with what looked to be about a 4′ long Barracuda. Not sure who was more scared of who, but I don’t think he almost soiled his trunks…….
Finally wrapped our snorkeling day up with a Bud Light and a Mudslide while we discussed our adventure and watched the local bar set up for a what appeared to be a wedding party.
Came back to the apartment for a quick dip in the pool and to finish getting items done (hot water, etc.) and finished up with a couple of drinks as we watched ‘local’ traffic’ going by our pier while we sipped drinks on our patio.
Just because the day doesn’t start out like you’d like — don’t always mean it has to end that way~~~ 🙂
