Day Six

Kicking off my last blog with last night, we finished day five we a night snorkel down at Guavaberry's beach. I partnered up with Barrett, and, with bright waterproof flashlights, we scanned the ocean floor finding a surprisingly few amount of aquatic life. Yet, we did see a giant lobster, a camouflaged octopus, and a few squid. However, my...

Day Five

Day five started with breakfast at the far more superior cabin, the Lime House.
