Christmas (Almost) at Christmas Cove

Happy Winter.

On our way back to town (Charlotte Amalie) tomorrow, we stopped again at Christmas cove today for a festive day.

We immediately jumped in and were welcomed by this guy under our boat.

Then, we got busy on our gingerbread house.

Of course, we couldn’t miss an afternoon paddle and then a good snorkel.  These ballyhoo were neat and quite friendly.

I also really liked this huge sea cucumber.

There are huge numbers of sea urchins here.  Mostly small and large black sea urchins.  I think that these are long-spined urchins.  They are really big. This is one, but there are thousands here. I want to pick one up, but need to come up with a plan.
