|Our friends Bryan and Regina, from Brujula Sailing Trips & Transport, had to transport some|
people and construction gear to one of the cayes, so they invited us to go along. We love going
sailing with them, and it was a Sunday, so we went along for the adventure.
|As we were leaving the marina we saw the giant catamaran that is the boat for Glovers Reef.|
|The whole top of the boat was filled with wood.|
|The interior of the boat was also filled with construction materials of all kinds.|
|Approaching our destination - Virginia Caye.|
|This is one of two cute dogs from a neighboring caye who had swum over to this island. The dogs are friendly to humans, but, |
unfortunately they try to attack the dogs of Willow, the owner of the island.
|Inside the main palapa, which is the main hangout for visitors.|
|The dock leading to the island|
|Cara loved this decoration at the entrance to the main palapa.|
|Regina relaxing and enjoying a beer before lunch.|
|The Brujula docked at Virginia Caye|
|While we were having lunch the intruder dogs started barking out at the water, and we finally|
saw that they were barking at dolphins swimming by. Then one dog jumped in, the other
followed, and they went off swimming after the dolphins.
|After dropping off the construction materials and workers we just sailed around to see what we saw, and it was a great time!|
|Bryan caught two beautiful Bonita tuna.|
(Lol - bonita means beautiful in Spanish, so their name is certainly fitting.)
|Captain Bryan at the helm|
|Regina also caught a snapper.|
|On one side of the boat the late day sun was dramatic as we headed back to Hopkins.|
|Still beautiful blue sky on the other side of the boat.|
|Headed up the Sittee River to the marina...|
|Regina looked like a model steering the boat (with her foot) on the river.|
|That night we headed into town for a free concert at Maude Park (at the bus stop) in Hopkins. This is something they will be |
doing every other Sunday evening, which is awesome! Tons of people were there - locals, expats and tourists alike!
|We ran into tons of friends, including Shelly and Jon.|
|Eric always has fun playing with friends' sons, Christopher and Amon (who recently lost his front teeth, so he looks a little |
like a vampire here).
