Yes, we had a lot of rain especially at night and it poured down until 9:30 of our first morning and - despite all electronics - as a skipper I want some visibility to get through all the reefs and yes the schedule on a Boat depends as well on the weather . . . July has statistically the most rainfall.
When we arrived at our first anchorage I asked You whether You are ready to snorkel and you picked a mask and flippers and dropped it into our dinghy. You decided to wait a little bit for some better light . . .
After a while I suggested to visit the restaurant on Crawl Cay because the docks there have a perfect view into the water with a lot of fish. We explored the place and I said hello to the owners, we did not order any drinks and I had the feeling I could at least get two gallons of fuel for the dinghy to give the some business.
You did not pick up the chance to snorkel with all the fishes down there . . .
On our way back to the boat we surrounded the buoy with the best reef but again You did not pick up the chance to snorkel . . . back on the boat you were asking some questions about the buildings on the next property, we jumped into the dinghy and went straight for it to have a look . . .
Most of the way to the Zappatillas we sailed until I started the engine to arrive sooner. We anchored in 10 feet of water and could not see the bottom, there was a layer of rainwater which makes snorkeling blurry . . .
Did You go for a swim on that pristine beach ?
When we arrived in Dolphin Bay it was not too late for a swim or snorkeling, it just was not that inviting. Schedule for next morning you determined to arrive in Bocas at 11:30 so we had to leave for Bocas at 9:00 AM. On the way the sun came out and You easily could have asked for a snorkel spot . . .
Wish you would have been here the last few days with full sunshine and a sky full of stars, you all the best . . . skipper Axel
