... and there's lots of excitement in the air about the adventure ahead. There was also perhaps a bit of apprehension regarding the overnight aspect of this trip (no one knew what quite to expect with this wild idea of spending the night on a small uninhabited Caribbean cay).
After arriving at the cay, "sleeping camp" was set up under the trees on the breezy eastern end...
... and a "beach bar" set up about mid-cay.
A beautiful afternoon of snorkeling and exploring slowly turned into a beautiful sunset. The feeling of having this beautiful little cay all to yourself is hard to describe.
When darkness falls, things really ramp up. A roaring bonfire lights a beach party that runs late into the night!
