Berry Islands Snorkeling 2

On board our dinghy were Joe, Ethan, myself, and MaryLou from Dalmation.  The dinghy in the photo background held Shani and Bruce from Carry On.  Picture by Lydia Adams and Bob (C’est la Vie), who were in the front dinghy taking the image on the left.

FullSizeRender(19)The first stopping point was Fanny Cay, which had some beautiful fish to see.  We anchored on a sand bar, and this allowed Ethan to practice his emerging snorkeling skills.

We find that Ethan is getting braver and braver with getting over his fear of the ocean and seaweed.  One day, I am sure we will tease him about the evil seaweed.  Ha ha ha!


Lydia also took the picture of Joe and I, and the water and scenery were stunning as it appears.

Next, we headed for Money Cay and the southern tip of Ambergris Cay.  This turned out to be our favorite spot seen to date, hands down!  Here are some photos I took with my iPhone, kicking myself that I didn’t have my good camera on board.  No photo editing done at all,  the images were not doctored in any way.

Keep posted for our next blog post where I did take my good camera to capture some incredible beach images of Great Harbour Cay.   Hugs from Joe Carla and Ethan

      Becky, maybe this is the place we should show you and Mike! Easier to get to than the BVI, just saying. 🙂

    I am just amazed thinking of the wonderful world and environment that Ethan is is going to grow up in and the life skills he will be equipped with when he is grown. I would have loved to have been able to offer those kind of experiences to our daughter when we raised her. Hats off and glasses raised to you!
