... were some of the last people out of the water. We really took advantage of our snorkel time! After snorkeling we were hungrier than a pod of orcas, so we quick rinsed and enjoyed some lunch at the grill with the tunes of Alfredo's keyboard. Jen had grilled octopus, I had some yummy shrimp.

Down below we also saw schools of different types of fish and also a school of Nobula sting ray. We then also went around to a place on the island called Bachelor Point where bachelor sea lions hang out. These are sea lions that are males that are either too young to ...
