|Rain squalls obscure the horizon - from our deck battened down for rain.|
Although it rained, Frost and I went snorkeling from our house to the public beach. We saw many fish on our swim and also found a small toy turtle on the bottom of the sea. Although it was raining, the visibility was incredible. Far better than it was earlier in the week when the sand was churned up making the near-shore water milky. While we swam a magnificent frigatebird rode the currents overhead, its long tail feathers pressed together.

I went for another evening snorkel and found a nice sized conch shell with lovely pink color.

Frost and I went on a reconnoitre to see what our 7-mile beach accommodation is nice. The building seems fine (aka Best Western style) and the pool has a hot tub, but the beach was rough and tiny and a 1/10 compared to where we are now. I am much happier off "the strip". We are going to have to get out and about. Frost is interested in the waves - thinking he can boogie board.
