Great last snorkel experience. 5 Caves Cove was surge-y on the surface, but the visibility was fantastic, about 20-25 feet. We all felt the urge to dive and dive in that clear blue.
Underwater the surge was a gentle rocking motion and on top the sun was bright and hot on our backs. I saw only 1 of the 5 underwater caves, but several SCUBA divers followed on the ocean floor below us.
The girls were underwater dolphin acrobats. They dived and curved into the clear water, watching schools of fish, turtles, colorful coral, sea caves.
E's pix came out especially well.
On each snorkeling trip we saw 1-5 turtles swimming with us, over the reefs and even when we did body surfing. This video is the best of the lot.
Here’s the entrance to the underwater cave:

It’s a 3D world, like astronauts in space.
Blue fish and young eel.

Our last searing hot beach adventure.
The heat! Every afternoon we hid inside, away from the sunshine, and baked under spinning ceiling fans. Every day, opening up all the sliding doors when we wake up to get the cool air, or closing all the sliding doors to keep the cool in when we went out.
After that first morning, the birds weren’t able to wake up anyone, we just slept right through.
The wind! These last nights have been hard to sleep through the slapping of the slats in the house.
Dennis fed us so much glorious fruit: papaya, mango, watermelon, cantaloupe, honey dew melon, dragon fruit, banana, passion fruit, apple bananas, pine apple, coconut. Cold fruit in the houses’ little blue cooler after snorkeling was almost a transcendental experience.
