December 5 – 6, 2012
The anchorage on the southern side of Rose Island was a great snorkeling spot. There are a bunch of coral heads along the edge of the island, and since this reef is protected for tourism, there are many large fish swimming in and around the coral.
As par for the routine, while Wil was working on some boat project, the kids and I would do school in the morning, and then we’d all go snorkeling by mid-afternoon.
There was a large mutton snapper that had us all wishing we could fish on this reef. It made the one we caught near Eleuthera look like a baby! There were lobster hiding under the rocks, and I almost bumped into a spotted moray eel. The assortment of parrot fish, and various other fish, were absolutely gorgeous!
