... to our room for a wonderful nights rest.


Thursday May 1
Arising from our sleep we were still very tired and the forecast outside was anything but sunny, however we told TJ we would meet him so we got up and putting on our bathing suits, clothes, and sunscreen and went down to breakfast.

... after diving destinations. We knew about the mythical riches underwater, an astonishing 1500 species of fish, 540 species of coral and 600 species of mollusks (the Caribbean, by comparison has around 500 species of fish and 100 coral) but what was really surprising was how unbelievably gorgeous and idyllic they were above sea level too.
