|An iguana posing handsomely in a bush. Usually they scurry away but this one seemed to enjoy the attention and posing for the camera.
|A band that walked up and down the street. Signifying what? Don't know.
|Back to the climbing structure on a sleepy Sunday.
|Nice to see living coral.
|Blue chromis is a favorite of the kids.
|This is a cleaning station. The Surgeonfish came in and the Damselfish cleaned the parasites off of them.
|Another favorite: trunkfish
|Magnificent Feather Duster
|HUGE puffer warily poking its head out of its hiding place.
|Lots of dive and snorkel boats ferry people out to the island.
|Peacock flounder camouflaging itself.
|On our way north to Deshaises we saw a pod of dolphins playing like mad. Look at these aerobatics!
|Then they came to play with us. It's always a treat when dolphins come to play and we get just as excited about it now as we did the first time it happened.
|Making more furry friends in Deshaises.
|A nice lunch out. Thankfully our waitress spoke a little English. We really had every intention of trying to speak French but totally failed.
|A selfie with our lunch companion who really enjoyed sharing Andy's grilled tuna.
|And then getting passed around for snuggles with everyone.
|That's a pretty decadent dessert for kids!
|After lunch we walked up to the Botanical Garden.
|What is it about these things that is so gross?
|Pretty flower. The Botanical Garden had a long winding path that takes you through the grounds. All the plants were laid out by region and well-labeled. It was much cooler among the plants than on the hot, steep road we took to get there.
|A nice name for one of the rescued macaws. I wonder if he's discovered his "special purpose".
|The macaws had a large shady area, funky caribbean colorful houses to roost in and lots of ropes and branches to climb.
|We were all looking forward to seeing the flamingos that are featured in all of their advertisements. So it was pretty disappointing that there were no flamingos!
|Orchids are so pretty. Especially au naturel.
|Overlooking the bay from the picnic area.
|There was a pen of very silly goats in the picnic area.
|One goat kept picking head butting fights with everyone.
|The kids had fun feeding the lorakeets. Cubby wasn't so sure she wanted to do it.
|But once she joined in it she had fun.
|But was still a little creeped out.
|Drew loved doing this at the aquarium in Norwalk years ago.
|Overlooking Deshaises. That's a cemetary in the background. They always have the best views.
