We went to Silk Caye (about 22 miles by boat from Placencia) yesterday for some snorkeling and lounging around. The abundance of fish and a healthy reef was quite a site to see, it felt as if we were flying with millions of fish just below us. We were gone all day so they served lunch on the caye so we wouldn't starve to death. After lunch we went out to a nearby sand bar, by boat, and that's where the excitement began. We saw a couple Loggerhead turtles, stingrays, and about a dozen or more nurse sharks. The girls enjoyed swimming with the animals very much and seemed to take it all in. On the way back from the sand bar we ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere. That was an interesting experience to punctuate a great day. After a distress call, a fellow boater dropped off some gas with us and we were off to town.
