A PERIPATETIC JOURNEY
not all who wander are lost
On the morning of May 25, we raised the anchor and moved over to a mooring ball at Sandy Island. This tiny, uninhabited island is part of a nature preserve and is known for both its snorkeling and its natural beauty. It was around noon when we picked up our mooring, so we had lunch and planned to wait until afternoon when the sun wasn't as strong to explore ashore. We watched another catamaran approach and quickly realized it was Maple!
We had a lovely afternoon on Sandy Island. The girls took turns burying each other in the sand, while Eoin and the adults snorkeled and then sat on the beach. Later we hosted the Maple crew for sundowners and made plans to meet up again soon as we were planning an early morning departure for Grenada.
The snorkeling, while not as impressive as the Tobago Cays, was nevertheless interesting and featured a large diversity of fish. There seemed to be tens of thousands of baby fish in the water and it was quite an experience to swim with them.
