Two days ago we arrived at Norman’s Key. We arrived in early afternoon and dove the sunken airplane here (video and pics coming soon).
In the evening, we met some Canadians aboard S/V Silver Fox (or Silver Fox II) who agreed to take our package to the post office when they got to Nassau! Thank you, wherever you folks are now, because there are two 5-year-old girls who were very happy to receive some homemade “mermaid necklaces” and beach treasures from Aunt Emily.
Yesterday was a big exploration day. We stopped at an island where there was a big concrete slab and the ruins of a small house, and looked at houses across the lake on Wax Cay. Then we found an area that dried at low tied, and walked all along a big deserted beach. On the way back, we met some Danes off S/V Capibara.
That afternoon, we ventured to a long open beach where we were the only ones around. We saw lots of plastic that had washed up on the shore, and inland from storms. We explored 3 caves and the new marina, then snorkeled the north tip of the “Whale’s Tail,” where we chased down a spotted eagle ray!
As the weather got worse, we headed back to the boat, where we spent the evennig playing Skip-Bo and watching The Life Aquatic.
