Our last couple of weeks in the Exumas were special for several reason but our visit from the Haramija family was tops. They arrived in George Town towards the end of the March and stayed with us for their spring break. We showed them George Town and enjoyed their company. Our kids would really like to keep Dylan (their daughter) around for much longer.
We did some hiking to the Monument Hill and to the beach on the Atlantic side.
We also did some boogie boarding on the leeward side of Stocking Island.
We hiked steep sandy hills and also slid down them.
The smaller ones went up the mast.
We had the wonderful opportunity to swim with wild dolphins. They spent about hour and half with us and were very playful. Me (mom) was the dolphin whisperer. They started to interact with me by doing little twirls for me, they let me touch them and they tried to communicate with their sounds. If you told me a year ago I would have the opportunity to swim with wild dolphins in their natural habitat I wouldn’t believe you.
And we relaxed, ate a lot and had a good time.
It all had to come to the end and we said goodby to our wonderful friends Darren and April and their daughter.
Their departure also marked our departure North. We are headed up the Exuma chain for a little and then off to Eleuthera. Bittersweet saying goodby to these beautiful islands. So far my favorites for its clear blue water and the natural beauty. Not so much civilization, which was nice break from our prior life.
