Our second stop in the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park!
Our exploration of the island began with a quick investigation of a cave. Orli and Zion snorkeled to it from the dinghy. Kyle swam Noah in and together they found some HUGE snails inhabiting the cave ceiling.
Next we found a couple large coral heads and snorkeled them!
Then we made our way to a beach on the mainland. Immediately, some fruit caught my eye. I foraged a few without considering the fact that I was possibly breaking a park rule. We’re still not sure what type of fruit, but our guess was guava!
The big idea was to hike across the island to get a view of the ocean. We didn’t end up making it very far—no path + lots of bushes + three people with short legs. It worked out well, because we ended up seeing one snake and learned that the park advises to stay on established trails for many reasons... one of which is the Poisonwood—a close relative of Poisin Ivy (and personal foe).
Back at the beach we did manage to scramble up some coral and large boulders, without encountering any poisionous plants or slithering creatures, for an overhead shot of the kids and boat!
We all played until sunset and then headed back to Plan B for our overnight stay.
The next morning a double rainbow joined us for breakfast and wished us farewell!
Warderwick Wells is next!
