I spent my morning hanging out at the beach behind Port St. Charles – an uber swanky address with its own port and helipad! Apparently the starting price for these places is $5 million US. I think sitting on the beach is as close as I will ever get to this address.
The snorkeling was pretty good here. I saw the usual suspects, along with some beautiful parrot fish and a sea snake eel thing. Which, upon further research, is actually an eel: The Sharptail Eel. It looked like a snake to me. Unfortunately the light was not conducive to good underwater pictures. The sun was really bright and just reflected strangely off stuff.
And for good measure, the hard to see Sharptail Eel:
I also got to experience some of the bird life as Luca tossed crackers to them. Doves, Carib Grackles, and Grey Kingbirds all came to enjoy the feast. The Grey Kingbirds were really intriguing to watch as they would swoop through the air, snatch the crumbs, and return to their tree, without touching the sand.
We ended our beach morning just in time, as a large rainstorm moved in.
