Yesterday Kel’s brother arrived safely (finally!). We’re so happy to have him here for the weekend. After the morning’s phone call, we went for a leisurely kayak across the harbor. We tucked ourselves behind a cluster of mangroves & dined on gourmet peanut butter & jelly sandwiches (no jelly for Kelly!). We watched small snapper swim around our feet & even saw a young lemon shark pass by. Today we had a successful Trip 50. Leslie (#80) & her calf friend joined us again & they were very interested in us silly humans. Although we may always strive to record the dolphins NOT interacting with us, sometimes they have a different agenda. Today these youngsters could not get close enough to us. Back on the island we ate a quick dinner at showered at the hotel (no running water at the moment 😉 before heading “to town” for a Junkanoo celebration. Junkanoo is a traditional Bahamian celebration with elaborate costumes, music & dancing up & down the road. A proper description is beyond words, but we can tell you that it was a wonderful experience & we hope to see it here again! And sadly, Darcie is beginning to pack as life back North is beckoning. But, Kel’s going to miss her, so we won’t dwell on that now. Until next time, Kel & Darcie
