East Bay, Conception Island

This morning we pulled up the anchor and motored six miles to the other side of Conception Island. We dropped the anchor again between Conception Island and Booby Cay. It is another truly beautiful spot and we had it all to ourselves. No boats, no buildings, no other people anywhere. We dinghied a short distance to snorkel over two coral reefs. The second one was especially beautiful with a variety of fan coral growing on large staghorn coral and lots of tropical fish. After lunch we dinghied in the other direction to snorkel over some other reefs. All of the coral we have seen has had algae growing on it and isn't as pretty as I imagine it was once. The photo shows Breeze On with a reef in the foreground (looks like a shadow).
East Bay is considered to be an unsafe anchorage in strong winds so we didn't want to stay the night there. After our lovely day there we pulled the anchor up again and returned to West Bay.
