The Mansions on Grace Bay
Travel Blogs from Providenciales
Today, still recovering from my kiteboarding stunt, we have snorkeled a few more times.
Yesterday, we went back to Smiths Reef. This time, we snorkeled closer to the buoys where the boats come in. I vowed to myself that we would not leave until we saw more eagle rays and I saw two! One of them was so close, I could clearly see it's spots and follow it for a few feet. I am posting representative pictures of what I saw. ...
... 6'6", shaved bald head, covered in tattoos and looking like he'd rip your head off for a fiver.
I chose to walk past him and get on with my washing, which I did, but once my smalls were spinning I could see he was still struggling, so I bit the bullet and asked if I could help.

Stay tuned for a Provo update from time off the boat.

Did a short kayak in the afternoon and ended the day going around the lazy river ...
... again. This time there is no mistaking... It is a horse. He is following a girl in a bikini who is picking sea oats and feeding the horse. This is surely something the horse could pick and eat on his own, but he preferred to hand feeding.
