I want in
The ladies behind were amused we couldn't get Mr B to cooperate for the pictures.
Mr B was up and ready to go "water, please" at 7 am. We convinced him to wait a little while longer although I think we hit the beach before 9. Started cloudy but still quite warm. The hotel does have very nice umbrellas and seats to sit around and so we got the ones closest to the water. I think Mr B took 50 million trips back and forth picking up sand then dumping it in the water then doing it all over again. He seems to enjoy it.
A decided to go snorkeling first on the reef. He gets all his stuff ready and is all excited to try his new prescription mask. Now as he heads in I think to myself, surely he knows that those buoys are set up AROUND the protected reef for a reason...apparently not. I was mortified as the hotel guy blew the horn several times as A casually swam right through the buoys. Finally he seemed to pick up speed and then finally looked up to see the guy waving at him to get out. Now of course this hotel guy ended up blowing the horn
Getting braver and braver in the water
Going in so far is not so fun for us. He thinks it's funny...til he can't touch bottom.
at least 10 other times that day but again we were "those" people. Well, at least A was. Later A told me he heard the bullhorn blowing and thought it was a shark attack. That is why he picked up speed! I went out snorkeling later and stayed around the buoys. Lots of fish, again, still scared of fish. And I saw spiny sea urchin poking out in one coral part, and a starfish no turtles or rays yet. People have said they have seen them out there though. Lots more people today and they were all out snorkeling at the reef. Tried to get an excursion to the TCI version of Grand Cayman's Stingray City (you remember that blog, right?!) and no one seemed to know what the heck we were talking about. Looking it up on the holy grail internet shows it to be off of Grand Turk quite a bit further away, not Providenciales, where we are. Whoops. Although you would at least think they new what we were talking about, it is in the TCI.
Down the Way
Tried to take a walk down the beach but Mr B is getting braver and braver
in the water. He will go in by himself nearly full up to his chest without his life vest on. He HATES to be out of the water. What should have been a 10 min walk turned into 45 because he wanted to be in the water all the time. It was funny though, he picked up some sand in a shovel and decided it was a hamburger. Where he got that I have no clue. I asked for fries with the one he tried to get me to eat. The sun came out on the walk and I turned 50 shades darker in about 15 minutes. The water is very clear/blue when it was overcast yesterday and was even prettier today in the sun. It is very, very pretty.
Mr B was out like a light after the walk and 2 hours later was getting up asking to go to the water. So we did. The water is cooler here than the other Caribbean islands we have visited but it isn't cold by any means. I have also noticed people don't seem to be in the water in the later afternoons, not sure why but it's nice being
the only people in there.
Dinner was at the Somewhere cafe again because we couldn't drag Mr B out of the water. I had a chicken taco salad and A had the special of Cajun chicken. Mine was very fresh and delightful.
