We had snorkeled quite away around the bay when we were encircled by a huge school of small silvery fish. Every way you looked, all you could see was the flow of the fish surrounding us, like a river.
Crazy: Suddenly though, the fish started churning back and forth more frantically and looking through the movement I spied a good sized shark. It was dark and menacing and needless to say that was the end of the snorkeling for me so we made our way back to Mowzer, with another view of our friendly turtle on the return trip. Apparently Cane Garden Bay had a number of sharks in it last week. This was the first time I've seen one in the water and while it scared the crap out of me (well almost) and it appeared huge when I saw it in the haze of the water, I'll try to be very realistic and say it was most likely about 4' long.
No picture of the shark but when we got back to Mowzer, this guy was hanging out - the biggest barracuda I've ever seen.
|I think the birds were enjoying the human antics.|
|Diamond Cay anchorage - moments before there had been just a handful of boats in the bay.|
|Ahhhhh, breathe in The Calm.|
