We (Pete, Anne, Emily & I) successfully completed two dives yesterday. The first one was a quick run out to a site called “The Pumpkin Patch”. Tons of coral along a shelf of a 6000ft drop but relax Gary, we stayed at 50ft! Visibility was incredible and our bottom time was about 40 min. We climbed aboard and switched tanks for our 2nd dive. This was a wreck dive. The very same wreck/location where they filmed “Never Say Never, Again” with Sean Connery. Naturally, they send a photographer along to grab shots that you can purchase back at the dock. We’re going back tomorrow for another 2-tank dive (Pete,Anne & I) so we’ll take a look at all of the images then and decide if there are any that we can’t live without ;) Pete had his camera with an underwater filter and I think we got some great ones too!
We had dinner on the property last night at an Italian restaurant and I have to say that I was mighty impressed. Great food, tasty and well presented…coupled with a great Chianti! Altho’ we were all pretty wiped from the day we stopped outside and played ping pong and I assisted Amanda in her quest to beat her dad at the giant checkers! Duh! Winning!
Sunday is family day in the Bahamas. Like Mexico, families flock to the beaches and hang out all day together. We will start ours by attending church at Sacred Heart, in town, with Pete’s Aunties and perhaps grab a bite at the “Poop Deck” at Sandy Beach.
Sunny, 80 something, light winds, calm seas.
