Today was fun.  At 4:00pm, after school, we snorkeled around Pimlico Cay.  It's so small that you can snorkel all the way around it.  There was a lot of bright coral.  I even saw a Pederson cleaner shrimp!  They are little and purple.  I've never seen one before.  At the end, there were a bunch of flats where Bro and I found a ton of live 6-keyhole sand dollars.  On one side of the small cay, there is a shipwreck.  Pretty much only the outside of the boat is left now.

We came home and played Spades.  Dad & I won.  I went nil successfully two times!  I am

After school, we went to search for an inland blue hole.  We found a path and walked about 5 minutes, and then we found it.  It was green and murky.  It was almost a perfect circle.  We didn't go in.  Dad skipped a stone across it.

We went back to the beach and snorkeled by a rock.  It wasn't very pretty, but there were tons of sea urchins, big and small.  That was cool.

After we were back in the dinghy, waiting for Dad, he called us to get back in the water to see a huge loggerhead turtle.   It started to swim away and Chris and I swam after it for a while.  Mom didn't get to see it and she was kind of angry that we chased it.

After dinner, Bro & I watched Bonanza.  I am happy. ©

Today we sailed north Water Cay.  It was a rolly, long passage.  Like most rolly passages, we got seasick and school broke up.

Once here, some fishermen gave us some fresh snapper and conch.  We paid in gold rum.  After dinner, we played Uno.  I am happy. ©

Today was okay.  We started a passage to George Town, but came back halfway because of the horrible conditions.  We got hit by a few squalls and the waves were huge.  So, we came back to Water Cay.  After dinner, we played Hearts.  Mom won.  I am

Today was good.  We sailed to George Town.  The weather was good.  Our autopilot broke, so we had to hand steer.  We'll get it fixed here though.

There used to be tons of boats here, but most headed north for hurricane season.  Now, there aren't half as many boats.  It's nice to be here.  I am happy. ©

Today was okay.  We went shopping.  Bro & Dad hitchhiked to the Napa store.  Mom and I shopped and did laundry and picked up sea beans (specifically sea pearls) from the ground and bushes near the Esso station.  They are thorny plants with thorny pods that contain the white sea pearls.  Some were green though.  I had fun.  I am

Today was good.  After school, Mom and Bro worked on the website.  I played. At 3:00pm, a huge thunderstorm struck.  It was sorta scary after not seeing lightning or hearing thunder for months.  The wind was strong.  I am
