More snorkeling and hiking

Feb. 10... Warderick Wells

In the morning I went snorkeling again (I love it) with the crew to the north of park headquarters. The current was tough at the first spot and although we again saw a lobster and some nice grouper, we didn't stay long. Back at the dinghies, we layed around in the water for an hour or so just talking. At the next spot... there were a few fish but hundreds of conch. The highlight was seeing a shark...nurse sharks are reasonably common and only get up to about 4 feet. This was something else... at about 5 or 6 feet it was spooky.

In the afternoon we all went on a hike to the far side of the island and then north to Boo Boo Hill which is the highest place on the Cay. At the top cruisers leave all types of biodegradable things with their boat name attached. We also checked out the blow holes, but they were not blowing when we were there. The holes go down into the rock and waves come up under them. In the right conditions, air shoots right up and can blow your hat off. One hiker told us she had lost her visor there that morning. They also make sounds which have led to stories about the place being haunted. It was a little easier hike ... not quite so much scary sharp limestone.

Later as the wind began to pick up we went to shore and met some of the boaters in our anchorage for snacks.
