OK! Well, maybe that is a little overkill. I mean it’s a shark, but a very small one. Don’t get me wrong; I wasn’t going in the water after the sighting!!
Chris and I decided to take a taxi to the Annaberg Sugar Mill, and then hike the Leinster Bay Trail to Waterlemon Bay.
We strolled through the ruins, taking in the history of the mill, the slaves quarters, the boiling room, trying to imagine the place humming with workers.
As we took in the amazing views, I wondered, was this gift of beauty the only salvation for so many? It was breathtaking!
After traveling back in time to the sugar mill, we walked down the hill to the trail. It’s an easy hike along the coast. A little rocky, but a flat trail to the beach. As it winds around the island, you are never disappointed with the ever changing view.
Thankfully, there were only two couples floating around in the water when we arrived, so it was much quieter than the previous beaches we had visited.
I tossed our towels under a tree to keep out of the sun. I love how the trees come down to the beaches!! I desire shade so much more now, than I did when I was young.
Chris, of course, immediately jumped in the water with his snorkel gear. After he did a quick investigation of the cove, he joined me under the tree for some lunch!
Luckily we enjoyed the days sandwich without bird incident!
Flashback….During a day at Cinnamon Beach a fast feathered seagull stole my sandwich…right from my hand….mid bite!
Now, this would have been much scarier than the previous beach bird attack, because the guy patrolling this cove was a nice sized Pelican, who put on quite a show flying down, scooping up fish, and flying to a perch to enjoy his catch.
