Today we took a boat out to Silk Caye, a deserted island, for a three-hour tour. Just kidding.
It’s close to the barrier reef–the second largest in the world. The snorkeling was freaking unbelievable! I felt like I entered a magic fantasy world with gigantic brain coral, sea fans, ruffling and undulating things everywhere in reds and purples and mustards and green. And the fish–every color and shape imaginable, angel fish and parrot fish and butterfly fish and trumpet fish.
Then we had a lovely picnic on the island.
See the Pelicans in the tree? So fun watching them dive bomb for fish! Then a storm blew in and we huddled under a Palm tree. The boat came to pick us up and we had a long, wet ride back to Placencia. No matter! We changed into dry clothes and explored the village of Placencia.
Just got home and I’m watching the nearly full moon reflecting on the ocean.
