We liked lunch so much yesterday at at Elizabethâ€™s that we thought we would try breakfast there too. Breakfast is really good at Casa Iguana but it is a pretty limited menu and we thought a change would be in order. Elizabethâ€™s was slow but good. Somehow, they didnâ€™t have any of the tasty island coconut bread and she ended up giving us a discount on breakfast which was kind of cute and unheard of.
Cindy has a full schedule today and headed off for her second dive which I found out later went much better than yesterdayâ€™s troubles with descent. We might turn her into a diver yet! While she was on her dive, I was drinking (no not rum coffee) with Kelly at the main house in Casa Iguana.
That afternoon, I joined Cindy for her 2nd dive of the day which was a deeper, 45 foot dive at a great spot called White Holes where there are three big white sand holes surrounded by beautiful coral reefs. We saw a ton of wildlife like eagle rays, nurse sharks, lots of lobster and iridescent shrimp, trumpet fish, angels, etc.
I did check into night diving with Dive Little Corn but, since I didnâ€™t do any training there, I would have to re-do the certification training that I just did yesterday in addition to paying a lot for the dive. I talked to Carl and Adam at Dolphin Dive and they think they can probably throw something together for later in the week. We just need to find at least one other paying diver so I will mention it to Ralf at the bar tonight.
We decided to venture out from the confines of Casa Iguana and had beers at Cuban restaurant north of the dock with a nice view of the sunset and a huge stack of lobster traps out front (that is what the boxes in the pinkish sunset picture are. We hung out and both had Lobsters for dinner along with Tona Beers and Cuba Libres. The lobsters were pretty good and we tried one Cuban Style and one in a Jalapeno sauce. Life is good.
We ended up watching a movie in the Grand Casita and headed off to bed early happy to not have any more damned Scuba homework which was getting kind of old.
