4-12-2015 boating with some friends in the afternoon.

On Friday the idea of a boat trip came up for Sunday.  We tried several options to get a boat and then on Saturday at about 9:30 at night Pam, a local friend, called her dad and arranged a trip to leave at noon on Sunday.  Pam, her dad, Guido, Terry, Eric and Cara headed out for a day on the water.

We met for lunch at the Curve Bar which is right on the Sittee River Marina and we met the boat there.

We boarded the boat and headed down the river

We went about 2 miles on the river and then you hit the sea

That is Terry and he is from Winnipeg and he has a teak farm down here.  He visits regularly.

After we hit the sea we boated for about five miles to this nice island.  It is called Bread and Butter Caye and is owned by a
farmer from Minnesota who stays here in the winter.  He invites boats to come and hang out.

This is another view of the island.  There are 2 primitive cabins to stay in if you wanted to.

A lot of the boats fish and then they clean and cook the fish here for lunch.  It is a popular spot.

Terry is on the left and is from Canada and Guido is on the right and he is from Rome

There are a lot of Hermit Crabs on the island and we caught one

They built this path in the Mangroves by pounding sticks into the ground then filling with sand in between

It is a very relaxing place

One of the best parts of the island is Rudy who is the big resident puppy
This boat is a typical skiff

We made our way over to a really big sand bar in the open sea

The water was perfect for relaxing.

The main reef is still several miles out to sea, but we are about 7 miles away from land at this point.

this is an odd 360 panarama
Terry landed Pam's fish and thought it was very amusing to get this picture

 We ended the day going over to Pam's restaurant and she cooked up the fish.  It was a nice day.
