After skimming them, I mentioned that since there was no rule about footwear, I needed to change out of my ...
... moving in and out of the coral. Also tons of conch shells and bits of lobster scattered about nearer shore.
For the afternoon I went out on a boat with Sarah who was also staying at Fairweather's. AC (guy with a boat) took us further out on the reef where we could get in to snorkel. Here it was a lot deeper and there were big canyons of white sand between the coral ridges. The coral itself was just really fascinating and beautiful ...
