BABY BAY BEACH
Meanwhile, Baby Bay looked a little different this time. The water was up higher than last time and there was less beach front property to claim so late in the day. Where we sat last time was actually under water this time. We are definitely the kind of people that can lay a towel or blanket down and be perfectly happy without lounge chairs and that's exactly what we did.
I don't know what it is about this hill but all the kids like to climb on it.
We tried to snorkel, but there really wasn't much to see. All the parrot fish were gone and there were only a few fish over in the small drop off in the area above by the rocks. Maybe the hurricane whisk them all away? Or do they migrate somewhere else during the winter season? I was real disappointed and was hoping that tomorrow would bring a better snorkeling day.
You could tell the ocean was still a little upset from the hurricane a few days earlier. It was really churning still, but it made for some awesome waterfall pictures of the waves crashing over top of the rocks and pouring into Baby Bay.
All over the rocks there were snails and crabs crawling. We found 1 snail last time we were there and they were just all over the place here this time.
Everyone decided they wanted a bite to eat so the boys headed up to the snack shack and brought us food back. I did notice that the prices had changed since the last time we were there. They had actually went UP instead of down. You would think with it being the end of the season and not as many ships coming in that it would go down? Or do they still have the same amount of ships coming in at this point?
The fries were tasty just like last time and still for $4.50 for a basket of them I thought they were a good deal. They loaded the basket up and there were plenty to share. The hubby came back with a cheeseburger and said it was good. Kendra came back with chicken fingers and they did look yummy. I ended up sending the hubby back to get me some. However, I ended up with 1 less chicken finger than they come with. Oh well, I guess I would deal with it and eat when we get back to the ship (which I would do anyhow whether I got another chicken finger or not...just saying).
While we sat around and ate, Sakari decided the birds were hungry too and she was on a mission to get them to eat out of her hands.
Obviously these birds are use to being fed because they are not afraid of you at all. They will come right up to you. She accomplished getting them to eat out of her hand and she was so excited.
Then Brayden happened....he came along and scared them away.
Once our bellies were full, the family decided they wanted to do some exploring again...on the other side by Baby Bay and off they went.
I handed the hubby one of my cameras and told him to get me some good pictures and off they all went.
It looked like they found some pretty neat places.

Although Kennys picture didn't turn out the greatest, it still showed the hubby sitting out on this ledge, which I'm glad I didn't have to witness.
I can't believe these guys were climbing all these rocks without shoes on. I at least had my shoes on when I did it.
You could tell it was getting later in the day and the sun was going down.
Meanwhile, I'm down below taking pictures of it getting darker and trying out different settings on my camera.
