I got up early and hit the gym while Gary slept in.  (He's still coughing and doesn't feel very well.)

By the time I finished, there was land in sight and we anchored in the bay, not too far from Half Moon Cay. 

We weren't in a hurry to leave so we ate breakfast and then collected our tickets for the tender that would take us ashore. 

It was beautiful and sunny and the sea was calm.  We walked about in the white sugar-fine sand and sunbathed for a bit while waiting for our snorkle trip with Karen, Hunter and Ali. 

A boat took us out about 15 minutes away to a lovely spot, full of many, many varieties of fish and coral.  Sometimes it was hard for me to keep the snorkle tube in my mouth because I was laughing so hard at the antics of the little fish that swam around me, so close that I could reach out and touch them.

The large fish below me, gnawing on the coral with their parrot-like beaks were amazing and I loved the purple fan coral, undulating slowly with the waves.

When we got back from snorkeling, we went back to the ship, around 3pm, and had a final dinner with Hunter, Karen and Ali.  Now off to bed, now that we're all packed and our luggage has been collected. 

Tomorrow will be a long travel day...pray for no cancellations!
