A little beach all to ourselves on a pre Mother's Day cruise on Saturday afternoon.
A bit of a late start but we headed out of our little Marina at Harbour Club Villas to our own little piece of beach paradise shared only with the local “introduced” iguana population (I saw two) and a cruising sting ray.
We moored the boat right off the little beach on Bay Cay
We decided to celebrate Mother’s Day a day early. The water was warm as I headed down the beach through the water to explore the rocks at the far end. The reflections were great and I came up with this photo of the boat moored in some pretty shallow waters right off the beach.
Play time on our own beach as I scrambled over the rocks taking photos.
The rock iguanas were too fast for me today! You can see Five Cays on the horizon looking towards the Shipyards and Sapodilla Bay beyond.
A surprise visitor cruised by between the two guys and close to the boat.
A friendly Stingray cruised along in the shallows, came right between the guys. Luckily I was on the boat at the time and managed to get a few photos.
Shows you how close to the boat it came and really close to the boys.
Late afternoon and the sun is sinking lower in the sky creating a glistening and sparkling effect on the water.
The joy of afternoons like this one……….idyllic tropic scenery, good friends, a beer or two, or three or more, playtime on a deserted little beach, calm waters and soft sand, always hundreds of things to photograph and of course celebrating Mother’s Day.
Happy Mother’s Day everyone!
