We stopped by briefly at Southwater Caye for lunch and a quick walk along the beach. The sand was beautiful and it was nice to sit in the water and enjoy the gentle waves. We also inspected the shoreline and discovered a little starfish among the shells and bits of coral.
In the evening, we got some much needed R&R back at Tobacco Caye and chatted with the locals.We explored the island again when it got dark and discovered more hermit crabs, magpie shells (big edible sea snails) and even a gecko.
