Big Seas from Africa
On day two of our land tour we got to see what all the commotion over the seas was about. We had been hearing from our 6:30 am weather report that huge seas had developed as a result of some big gale off of Africa. This picture shows the waves breaking, scary but magnificent. As a result we were unable to snorkel, and the blue hole we visited was too murky to dive. The panoramic views were magnificent and we hiked up to the Columbus monument, screwing up our schedule so that we missed our final straw market opportunity.
This night we hosted Rob and Christine for a farewell dinner as they continue to Conception Island once the seas lay down and we head to Staniel Cay to pick up Beth. There's a chance we may hook up again in the Abacos, but one never can predict these things, so we said our tearful goodbyes to these wonderful new friends.
