Evening dinner on Honeymoon Beach

Evening dinner on Honeymoon Beach

May 9th 2015

Saturday. A day for wandering about exploring the “wilder” side of Water Island, and then an evening on Honeymoon Beach eating excellent food and drinking beers and rum drinks with Kara, Matt, Kevin and Sara, some of my fellow “glampers”.

I will admit to some sunburn on the tops of my feet, my upper shoulders, and sore calves from the steep inclines of this place. I’m NOT complaining, but I wasn’t quite prepared for the steep angles. The Virgin Islands campground is at the top of the island which is extremely hilly. Good exercise, but a little like skiing for the first time…even if you ARE in good shape (which I do not claim any part of….heheh), you will use muscles in ways that you aren’t used to. I’m getting better, but I DEFINITELY wasn’t used to the inclines.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

This is a pictures tells the tale post, so let’s get roling with theย  day in order:

The Sargassum infestation. A spiny weed that grows in the ocean, usually found further south. It has been a problem for the locals this year.

Although the area here is called Limestone Bay, it is actually a coral beach. The "rock" I'm holding once upon a time was alive. :-)
