Back on the Water after Three Months as a "Landlubber"

     Finally getting my water fix. for the past three months between the work in North Carolina, Miami Rum Festival and a few other things we haven't been out on the "camper".  This morning we headed out to Bahia Honda and after a really nice ride here we are finally relaxing in the sunshine and enjoying the beautiful day.

     Made it to Bahia Honda and the boat is Tied up and the Kayak is
in the water.  Time to head out as see what we can find.  There is a little coral rock about 3/4 of a mile out into the Atlantic side from the old Railroad bridge that we haven't gotten over to in quite a while, so off we go.  A little bit choppy still, but undaunted, we head out to the rock and do some exploring.  The tide pools are really heat, there are many species of young fish riding in and out with the wave action over the pools.  Really interesting.  Several of the succulents growing in the tidal zone are starting to bloom with their tiny purple flowers, along with a few stranded sponges.

     The sunset cruise in the kayak out to one of the marker buoys for sunset is another highlight of every trip out to Bahia Honda and we didn't miss it on this trip.  Two rum cocktails in hand and away we go for an hour or so rocking along with the waves.  After returning it is time to turn on the blue courtesy lights and sit on the aft deck and enjoy the rest of the evening under the blue led lights.
