Little Corn Island – Day 6
Breakfast at Rosa’s again. French toast for everyone.
The first dive today we went out to a site called Jeff’s rock; another deep dive, 77 feet. Lots of nice coral, but the vis was not great. Â Today was the first time Meghan got to try out her new underwater housing on her camera.
The winds have started to calm down, so we were able to do our first dive on the east side of the island. A dive site called White Holes. Wow, this is great diving. Shallow, 29 feet, but with huge stag horn coral and elk horn coral all pristine. And lots of fish; saw a school of Sergeant Majors that had to have close to 700-1000 fish in it. We (Meghan and I) finally got to see a shark – Carolyn had already seen one this trip. There were 3 of them on this dive! The first two were hidden a bit under a coral ledge; the third one was pretty much tucked next to the coral but in the open. We were able to get down low and get to about 2 feet from it. Very very cool. We also saw a sting ray, a few porcupine puffer fish and Meghan saw a smooth trunk fish.
For dinner we went to the Cuban restaurant. It has not been open for the last few days as the wife of the owner and one of the servers play baseball and were at a tournament on the mainland. Apparently they came in second. The restaurant was highly recommended to us and it required reservations. It’s worth it. The lobster was fantastic, done in a Cuban sauce, which had onions and a red sauce, it was delicious.
Not sure what is on the agenda tomorrow, we are taking a day off from diving, although Meghan will be starting her rescue diver today, I think it is mostly classroom sessions. Meghan and Carolyn are looking forward to being able to sleep in!
