A novel Christmas

25 December 2010 | Hopetown, Elbow Cay
Sunny, 70
Santa did indeed make a quick stop at Calypso but the presents remained under the tree as we had a microscopic weather window to go diving. We anchored across from the Land and Sea Park at Sandy Cay, got everyone kitted out in their gear, hooked the dinghy onto a dive mooring and splash! we were snorkeling/diving on Christmas morning. Andrew enjoyed the dive under the close supervision of recently certified brother Alex. The highlight was a ray buried in the sand with one eye peering out. The coral here is attempting to regrow but one can see the vast die off from whatever the prior ecological practice was.

As soon as the air ran out we upped anchor and made full speed back to Hopetown. Kap'n Kut plowed through some sand humps on the deep draft route at just one foot above low tide into Hopetown Harbor to a secure mooring in anticipation of a breezy day Sunday, a cold front with gusts to 40.

New Zealand lamb chops grilled on the barbee for Christmas dinner and a flurry of unwrapping. Santa brought Christine a Nook, Calypso an underwater camera and of course Alex got more fishing gear!
