Came in through the inside channel, between many small islands and anchored in a beautifull bay just off of Thunderball Grotto.

They have 3 tiny grocery stores here. Basically small rooms with plywood shelves but we were able to get what we needed.

Met a couple from Denver, Steve & Deb, and invited them to the boat for happy hour. Then took them back to their cottage and had one for the road.

After that snorkeled the Thunderball Grotto. Was used in a scene from the James Bond movie Thunderball. It's a high domed cave inside a small rock island. Went in at low tide so we could swim right inside. Full of fish and coral with sunbeams streaming down into the water. It was really neat. And finaly got to use our underwater camera.
