I’ll give you fair warning, if you are dying to go somewhere warmer, beachy and gorgeous, then you may not want to read this blog post. Please don’t hate me! Perhaps it will make you feel better when I say both Jaime and I were sick on this trip. Head colds? Check. Upset stomach? Check. Nausea? Yes! That being said, we’re ready to go back next year… or now.
Jaime created this fantastic video of our adventure, which I will admit I’ve probably watched 200 times now (still makes me smile!) The images were captured with GoPro cameras, and I illustrated the map detail. All of this would not have been possible without love from my “other brother” Norm, and his mad sailing skills – among other things. And if this vacation video has you interested in a similar trip, tell Navtours Jaime and Jamie sent ya. (We’re also willing to photograph your vacation too, haha!)
And now, my top 10 favorite photographs from our vacation:
Thunderball Grotto in Staniel Cay. So unbelievably amazing, this picture really does not do the cave justice. Jaime may kill me for posting this on the blog, but my bumm is in much of the video, so I think we’re even. He’s so cute! (Look at all the water in his mask!) The piggies of Big Major’s Spot. This was the much-anticipated highlight of my trip, one of the piggies laid down in the sand like a puppy when I scratched him – I wanted to take them all home.
This is a nurse shark that we swam with. She was so graceful and gentle, and we made quick friends by giving her a bit of tuna. She even let us pet her. This is probably my favorite shot from the whole trip, she certainly wasn’t camera shy.
