11/21 - Today we both actually slept in, totally out of character, we must be relaxed. After breakfast we went over to the sunny side of the island, I know it sounds crazy but even on a 5 acre island the weather is different from one side to the other. There was no wind on this side so it made a great place to lay in the sun and read the morning away. They guy from canada came back from fishing with three large baracudas, for dinner he said. Great, I guess I am going to be eating fish... sooner than I thought too. Lunch was fried fish and she didn't bring anything else different for me. Well I did say if I had to eat it I would. Well I had to, and guess what I actually liked it! I know, crazy a boy from Long Island who didn't eat fish. It only took 30 years and a tropical Island to get me to like fish. In the afternoon we snorkled out and around the reef, the waves were not too bad and the coral was amazing. Giant brain coral, fan coral, and more cool fish incuding a 5 or 6 foot baracuda. After swimming for almost 2 hours we chilled on the non-windy side til dinner. I even liked the snapper that was served for dinner, I guess I really do like fish now
11/22 - Glad we stayed one more day, it was a calm sunny beautiful day! Opened all our windows and chilled on the porch this time without long sleeves. Today we snorkled twice, the first one was long, around the island and then out to the reef. The sun was out and the sky was clear so the visibility was amazing and the colors were vibrant. We saw some more eels and rays. Once again I ate fish for lunch. I know I am making a big deal of me eating fish but for those that know me also know of my past aversion to fish. Before our next snorkle we relaxed in the sun on the non-windy side, I read and Casey painted. I love that she is so relaxed that she can paint. Our second snorkle was short but just as exciting as ever, more eels, another eagle ray and an octapus.
This little vacation from our vacation was amazing, this really is a great little island. Tomorrow we leave paradise for more paradise.
