All That Glitters

Here we are, anchored in Big Majors Spot close to Staniel Cay.  This is my favourite part of the Bahamian experience:  gently rocking at anchor, enjoying the sea breezes, jumping off the back deck into the warm waters to swim.

Hey!  Look what's hanging out underneath my boat!!!!!!!



That's one BIG barracuda--almost 5 feet long.  He has HUGE eyes to catch sight of shiny objects which he thinks might be good to eat.  He has ENORMOUS teeth to shred his prey.  I definitely want to avoid being prey.

Look what I make sure to take off before I go swimming!!!


Hopefully, the small silver rings in my earlobes are too small and covered by my mask for him to see.


Good night all.  Sleep tight in your cradles/rocking berths.

Loverly....but I'd check those earrings at the door! Woudn't wanna tempt that barracuda!
Just wondering if in any of your travels you've ever met my college roommate and her husband...Judie and Herbert Boxill. They have been 'rumored', lol, to be in that area a time or three. Never know it's a really small world.
