3-1-2020 Snorkeling, Beach Walk and Blues Music with Family

Some of Eric's family (mother, step-father and uncle) were visiting, and they wanted to do a snorkel trip, so we went out
with Happy Go Luckie Tours for ahalf day trip. It was rainy and chilly on our way out, but that didn't dampen our spirits. At
our first stop Cara went snorkeling 
with Eric's mother Nancy and Uncle Paul. We saw the usual beautiful coral and fish, as
well as a couple of stingrays, one of 
which we saw bury itself in the sand. 

Just when we got back in the boat Cara spotted a big turtle swimming by the boat. In fact, it was a huge Loggerhead turtle!
Cara and Paul jumped back in to watch the curious turtle, who hung out by our boat checking us out for several minutes. It
was quite the experience! Sadly, we didn't get any really good pictures of it.

At the second stop we all went in the water, though it was much less eventful. Hard to compete with a Loggerhead sighting!

After going home and taking showers we all went for our usual Sunday beach walk.

We met up with several other friends along the way. Here we are at Driftwood Pizza Shack.

Next we stopped at Queen Bean Restaurant.

Then we headed up to Hopkins Beach Club.

It turned out to be a beautiful day, thankfully.

Eric and his mother, Nancy.

Our last stop was Rhum Shack at Hopkins Bay Resort for the best pina coladas.

That evening we went to Jalapeno's BBQ & Grill for dinner and some awesome blues music.

In the center are Steev Inglish (aka Mr. Downchild) and Kasimira Vogel - they are Blues Meets Girl. They were backed up
by Trevor Wall on bass (at far right), and another great guitar player whose name we unfortunately did not catch.

It was the last time they were going to play in Hopkins for a while, so we were happy to be able to see them again. Eric's
family loved them as well. It was a full and tiring, yet excellent day!
