It rains at night and the days have been calm and sunny. Perfect for exploring the surrounding islands. We have two families staying and a group of us took the island boat up to the blue hole on Hoffman’s Cay, where all the kids jumped in from the ledge 20 feet above the lagoon into the dark, cool water below. Then we went to Flo’s for conch fritters and grouper, washed down with Chester’s world class rum punch, while a friend, Peter Holt talked to Chester about his uncle, who used to own the island opposite Little Harbour.
Our island tortoises, Tom, Dick and Harry, are growing almost big enough to be released, without being in danger of being mown by the tractor. One day we’ll be able to ride on them and perhaps even have tortoise races.
