We went to the shallow side of Allen’s Cay and Southwest Allen’s Cay to snorkel and spearfish. We let Torben and Anne-Marie do the fishing today. There weren’t as many fish in this area. Torben speared a trigger fish. But he said a bucket shark stole it off of our boat :) At the end of the day, we realized that Anne-Marie doesn’t like to dive underwater with a snorkel. So she didn’t take very many shots. We figured this out when she dropped the spear and Dave had to dive down to pick it up for her. LOL!

|pretty school of fish|
|only a couple scales made it back to the boat this time|
Then the two of us headed to the Xumas Restaurant at the marina. The store closed at 5:00 and our dinner reservation was for 6:00. So what do you do? Head to the bar. The restaurant was on a hill side and was open air. Beautiful setting and beautiful view. We found the bar and ordered the local drink, Goombay Smash. It has pineapple juice and 3 different rums. The guys joined us shortly after that. Our table had a wonderful beach and sunset view. We had awesome coconut shrimp as an appetizer. All of our meals were excellent. And we shared two desserts, guava duff and guava bread pudding.

We made it back to the boat in the dark just fine (even though we forgot to leave our anchor light on-that’s rare).
