It has been a little time since we last blogged. There has been plenty to blog about, but so little time to actually put it together.
To begin with, we are so, so grateful to have seen the worst of the weather gone. That was a very tough few months and some of the worst conditions that we have experienced in decades. Needless to say, every hour of Caribbean sun that we are getting now is LOVED (I am sure island visitors are feeling the same!).
Starfish Point has been exquisite and we have shared a ton of photos with our guests - we provide them free of charge and we hope that they love their vacation photos.
This week, Captain Mario also found this cutie there - he did not recognise it, but we contacted the Department of Environment and they identified it as a Two Spined Sea Star :
The photo not only captures how beautiful it is, but also how clear the waters have been this week (more photos below!).
This fellow is nocturnal and usually only comes out of hiding in the sand at night to enjoy it's prey - it is a carnivore and likes to munch on molluscs and gastropods such as the queen conch. It transfers its prey to its mouth using it's arms and swallows it whole, later regurgitating undigested leftovers.
It was a great little find and we have enjoyed sharing the pics and the info with you!
As we were saying above, we have been blessed over the last two weeks with great conditions (this past Wednesday being the only day that was so bad we had to cancel tours), and we promised to share some photos - so here they are - enjoy!
