A very lazy day. The weather outside is unsettled and the wind sometimes gusts through the anchorage and at other times there is a perfect calm. I spent the morning hours doing a bit of computer work for the previous days and cleaning up, then went for a little snorkel trip around the boat. The first thing I saw after taking picture of the cannon (or something that looks just like one) underneath the boat was a beautiful Spotted eagle ray, the first one I'd ever seen. After swimming around for a bit and coming back to see if the pictures I'd taken of the ray had turned out I looked at the clock on the wall and was surprised to see that is 14:00 already. This is definitely “Island Time” today and a good day of rest and relaxation.
