Paradise

20 December 2018
When we arrived in Cambridge Cay yesterday it was the first day that we really felt as though we'd arrived in paradise. Within 20 minutes of securing the boat Bev was in the water swimming and I was off talking to the neighbours. Bev normally does ten laps around the boat and when you factor in circling the anchor rode and the dinghy it gives her a total distance of a thousand feet. However, I noticed she didn't spend as much time in the water as usual so I thought I'd check to see if it was too cold. "Water's beautiful" she said, but there was an Eagle Ray following her around the boat so she called it quits.

After lunch we went for a dinghy ride to the "aquarium" which is a small circlular coral reef, about a mile away. Fishing is prohibited in the Marine Park and I think the fish know it. The small reef is teeming with fish of all colours and they show no fear of the swimmers. You really feel as if you are part of the community, I would probably be of the whale family. On the way back we toured along the shoreline checking out the numerous beautiful little beaches.

After a leisurely breakfast this morning we met Paul and Laurie for a hike and some beach combing on the outer island. It was a beautiful hot day and the hour and a half walk was a great way to work off dinner. There always seems to be some sort of marine life in the mooring field, so far we've seen rays, turtles and a reef shark. The highlight of the day was watching a 4 foot diameter Eagle Ray jumping 100 yards from the boat. Now it's time to hunker down and prepare for the high winds that are expected tonight through until tomorrow evening.

Today's picture is of Bev during our hike.
