After the first hard rain we’ve had in 3 months, Derrek and Mary hopped off the commuter flight from Nassau to the Staniel Cay International Airport tarmac. They were both ready for a snorkeling vacation.
It didn’t take long for us to have them diving into Thunderball Cave of 007 fame. On the way back from the cave in the dinghy, I thought Mary was going to tear some skin because of the size of the grin on her face.
After each dive we played identify the fish. This is a angel fish.
A commuting lobster. These guys were really out cruising!

We headed up the mangrove lined river at Shroud Cay. Turned out to be a really low tide, so we had our boat boy pull us over the sand bars.
The payback was this great Atlantic side beach
The beach was empty except for one Paparazzi
