We took a pontoon boat out to the sandbar in the bay this morning with the Ladners'. It could NOT have been a more beautiful day (but it would have been nice to have our Trade Winds back). We left the marina around 8am and made our way to the sandbar. As we were trolling along, we saw lots of sea turtles. Alaina happened to see one at the bottom between some coral so we stopped and watched him swim around.
We packed lunches and enjoyed a simple meal on the water. Here is Alaina enjoying her yummy sandwich:
The girls tried fishing a while with some rented poles (which both ended up being broken) so we had a few baggies of squid bate to get rid of. Lucky for us, a big ol' puffer fish came floating along, so the girls tried to lure him in with the squid. They got it to get pretty close, and it ended up with quite a meal.

And the squid bait (yuck).
We had some great drivers...
