Me, attempting NOT to get water down my snorkel tube

Today we just hung out and did some more snorkeling.  I think Jessica and I especially appreciated the low-key day after yesterday's horrors... haha. 

We dinghyed over to a reef not far away (maybe 10 minutes?) and hopped out to explore.  It was a sunny day, which really helped with the underwater photography - we captured more color today than on most other days.  We also got to see an eel and a nurse shark!  Very cool. 

I'm starting to notice subtle differences in snorkeling now - like unusual markings on usual fish, or differences in the depth of water as far as what types of coral and fish to expect.  Who'd have thought I'd be becoming an expert at this interesting activity?  Certainly not me!  But it's a ton of fun!  Jesse and I have both said that we're now completely spoiled for any and all other less interesting snorkeling locations.

Pretty fans and fishes
..  oh well, we'll just have to come back some day.  :)

We had dinner at the island restaurant again tonight, and it was... interesting.  :)  Jessica got a big piece of plastic in her dish somehow (like a cut sheet or liner or something?), and the waitress (NOT the same one as last night) barely even glanced at it - just took it away without apologizing or offering to replace her meal or anything!  We had other smaller issues with the service as well, and the 'adults' spoke with the manager afterward.  Note to party - request last night's waitress if we eat here again!

Tomorrow- the BATHS!!!  Yay!
