Despite the rain…

This morning, after a lively evening in town we were able to sleep inn, and for most of us catch up on some much needed sleep! After breakfast of scrambled eggs we left the yacht club and motored around part of the island, through both the sunshine and the rain. With a quick change of course we picked up a mooring for the morning. We then dinghied over to a bakery we had visited a few days before to get some great treats and baguettes for dinner. Then with a motor to a new location we put down an anchor and swam and explored the land for the remainder of the afternoon. In addition to the great swimming, we snorkeled and found some really cool corals and a variety of small colored fish. Once we raced aboard again the rain poured and eventually cleared out and left an incredible sky scene. The distant rain and gray skies over the turquoise blue water was a positive outcome from the huge amount of rain. Following this observance of the skyline on deck (after we held a full organized debate over where to eat!), the Pelican Crew prepped for a Lifeworks night and took in yet another view of the sky in the brilliant clear stars.
