At 6.30am the alarm goes off and Sim gets out of bed to listen to Chris Parker, our weather man on the single side band radio. This is almost a daily occurrence while we are on the move. We are anchored in Big Major's Spot, the place for the infamous swimming pigs and just around the corner is Staniel Cay with Thunderball Grotto - the caves teeming with fish. But we are not interested in either, we have seen them before. Unbelievably its still too cold for snorkelling, the weather in the Bahamas is very different from last year - they say this is due to an El Nino year.
|The pigs that swim at Big Major's Spot. I have to admit I dont see the appeal.|

I've loved walking on the beach. I always do. Even Sim said he liked this one. The sand firm and hard - not making it difficult for his knees.
We wade back out to the dinghy that we anchored and go back to the boat and shower. It's gone 5pm so we pour ourselves a drink and sit down with our tablets to see what's going on in our cyber world. I flick through the photos from the day and I think to myself - its been a good day.

I'm always happy on the beach
Tiny little starfish litter the sea bed.
We found pretty shells with live inhabitants and plenty of sand dollars too
Stunning beaches at Little Bay - this for me, is what it's all about.
As the sun goes down we go back to the boat. Its been a good day.
