April 29, 2017 Nornans Cay, Exumas

Today we took the dingy to explore Normans Cay.  We were here two years ago and loved the solitude and beauty.  This year, we went to a small island that we called “Erin’s Cay” with one palm tree.  We found that the one palm tree was no longer standing.  And across the channel from this island, they were building a marina.  I guess progress is good for the economy, but we liked the solitude we found before.
This used to be our favorite island before the tree blew over

We spent the day in a bay/lagoon snorkeling.  Then we checked out an airplane wreck on our way out.  This area used to be inhabited by drug lords, but that was cleaned up years ago. 

After our day of playing in the water, we moved the boat a little further north to Highbourne Cay.

the water was splashing over the side of the dingy,so Torben thought it would help to wear his goggles
