We spent the day yesterday and night last night in Bahia de Almodovar.  It was a quiet, Sunday-sort of day.

Well, quiet until the end of the Green Bay – Chicago game last night.

Go Packers!

During the day, we took a kayak paddle up to the reef and the mangrove-filled cay upwind and then down to the shoreline of Culebra here in Bahia de Almodovar.  In between the small cay off our stern and Culebra, there is a stretch of 2′ deep water that is filled with upside down jellies.  They were hard to photograph underwater, but here is one we stirred up to the surface.

Don Street labels this one of the top anchorages in the Eastern Caribbean and we can see why.  There is a nice breeze, almost no bugs, only a few lights on shore, and the water is flat.  That means no rolling and nice sleeping.  We can even set things down on the counter and expect them to be there when we return.  Oh, the little joys in life.

We also opened up “Spa Hurrah” and provided nail painting and hair styling and cuts for Hurrah, Molto Bene, and Ubiquitous.
