We took the dinghy over areas of coral and did a drift snorkel with the dinghy. At least one person hung on to the dingy. But we all took turns spearfishing and diving down for photos or a closer look at something. It was fun to hear Anne-Marie giggle through her snorkel.
We would get into the dinghy and try a new area once we drifted through a spot. We spent most of the day in the water.

Back at the boat, we had a feast. Anne-Marie wanted to cook everything she found.
We returned to snorkeling but only brought back conch. So we had conch salad for dinner. Then we had popcorn and a movie. They had to see Captain Ron. Anne-Marie doesn’t watch movies at home, only about a half dozen in her life. We had English captions to help with the interpretation. She stayed awake, so that was a good sign. Torben loved it.
