Nightmare before early morning (I don't want to fly)

Broke off right side of glasses ugh

Flight leaves late

JFK - racing to gate. Flight leaves early. 

Movie - LaLa land boring fell asleep 

Easy customs and immigration 

91 degrees 

Powder blue Suzuki alto - added Peter to drivers so that he could drive if I had an issue 

Peter did a great job getting us to the cottage 

We had arrived early as we surprised Laura with our arrival. We had a good chat while the floors were drying. 

Overview 

Headed out to eat ...SomeWear ( delish and tasty drinks) 

Back to the cottage pack up 

Try to find beach on turtle tail .

Look - a starfish
..not easy 

Finally gave up and chose a path to the beach and yay...success. 

This side was very, very shallow, warm, and extremely clear. 

I lay on the sandy bottom with my head and feet exposed...how shallow it is. 

Peter had a lengthy chat with a lady named Ruth about her heritage and family. They had come from the Bahamas with her sister. They had grandchildren at this point and talked of the loss of their culture. Her sister was hunting for conch for dinner while her grandson, Lucas, swam and eventually chatted with me about starfish and enjoyment of the water. 

Ruth talked about desiring a piece of waterfront property. The one we serve swing at was $750,000 for the half acre with a small amount of beach frontage. She spoke of the increasing limited beach access just to be able to go fishing. She said that she had been reprimanded for passing through access by residents as they said it was private...everything was becoming private and with no local access even though the beaches were the domain of T&C and the ladies can legally be on any beach. 

We returned to the cottage and had dinner in of snacks purchased at the grocery, we both were tired from the travel and had full day ahead planned.
