We made two trips from the boat to the reef with a rest break in between. We had a nice time and saw some pretty fish and coral. Unfortunately this area is one that has seen quite a bit of damage so a "Blue Planet" experience will have to wait for a different location.
We made lunch in bright sunshine and 80 degree temperatures but as we headed back the clouds came in followed by thick fog. By the time we made it back to the mooring field visibility was down to under 100 feet. We got tied up safely and the fog lifted enough for Jim to get back to his boat. We went over later for a great dinner. We left early as the wind was starting to rise.
This morning we are seeing winds gusting to 30 knots and waves at 1 to 2 feet so our plan to go downtown will have to wait.
