Today's trip was only 33 miles and yet it seemed to take forever to travel this short distance. Wind was nearly nonexistent and with a 2-knot current against us we seemed to be standing in place much of the time. The seas were so flat we could have water-skied. Abbot mid-way through the trip we saw a dorsal fin zigzagging frantically. Another shark, and this time it was either feeding or stalking a prey. A short time later we were joined again by a pod of dolphins. Wow - so much going on! It was a beautiful day.
We arrived at Coral Bay by around 2:15, and immediately decided to go to shore to check out the resort.

There is only one other yacht here, Esperanza, owned by a lovely Dutch couple named Carla and Han. We practically have this place to ourselves. We enjoyed our wonderful dinner; the fish was served whole and was cooked to perfection. We browsed the gallery afterward and purchased a painting by an Aboriginal woman, whose sense of humor we found endearing.

We are trying to decide whether we stick around here another day or leave tomorrow. We really are cutting it close with our time now. We'll sleep on it and decide over coffee in the morning.
