In the morning we decided to look into the next cove for a change of venue. Just a half an hour to the next cove but a different world.
We anchored the Dinghy in 1 foot of water and walked several hundred feet to dry land.
This was a very beautiful cove with clear green water and a huge shoal leading up to the beach. We chanted "slide don't step" all along the walk to the beach to remind ourselves not to step on a sting ray. This is a perfect place for rays and if you step on one, they will impale you with their tail and that would spoil the day for all of us. Their tail is fat and barbed.
Coda is anchored in about 20 feet of water. It is a beautiful place. We walked several hours on the beach and wandered in the mangroves in the shallow part of the cove. We found an old dinghy wreck deep in the mangroves and Carol identified the species and bone parts that we found on the beach.
This was a very nice place and a good walk. All that was left was to watch the sunset and enjoy a drink.
