08 January 2007 | Peter Island, BVI
Today started out quietly and calmly. We were in the Nanny Cay Marina, where we had spent the night. We stayed until about 11:30 am, and after a quick breakfast of pancakes, and a shower for some, we were on the road (it's just a phrase) again. We headed to Peter Island right away, and spent most of the day there. We first decided to check out the resort on the beach. Wow. It was unbelievable, and very ritzy. When we walked into the lobby with our snorkeling gear and towels, everyone in there just stared at us like we were aliens. It was actually kind of funny. There was a beautiful pool out the back, with an amazing view. But the beaches were white, an the water was SO blue. So, we hung out in the ocean, and checked out all of the cool little minnows. After that, we hung out on the boat for awhile, and then decided to go snorkeling. Some of us (Sandi) hadn't ever been snorkeling before. So, today was her chance to learn. We took the dingy out to a shallower spot, and then swam out a bit deeper. We saw the most amazing sting rays. The first one was a regular sized ray, but the second was under our boat, and it was huge. However, when we compared the pictures of the two rays, the first one actually looked bigger! Later, we sailed back to Nanny Cay, and we are going to spend the night in the marina again. We'll be leaving early tomorrow, to get a good start to another awesome day!
