Day Four was spent at Half Moon Cay, Bahamas. Half Moon Cay is a private island that Holland America leases from the Bahamian Government. Only 50 of its 2400+ acres have been developed.
We did a Nature Walk first thing in the morning, which was nice. We did not see a lot of fauna, but learned some interesting facts about the flora.
Then to the beach. The wonderful, amazing beach with waters of several shades of blue and powdery white sands. The Artistic One shows no red whatsoever, her complexion being much tanner than mine to begin with. I have red because my body has not been in a bathing suit for many years and therefore there are many parts that see little sun.
The day was relaxing – just heaven – once we finished having to queue up for something one more time, and before we queued up for the line to get back aboard a departure time. We shared the Cay (did you know a Cay – pronounced Key – is the word used for a piece of land too small to be called an island? I didn’t) with another Holland America ship that day – the Niew Amsterdam, so the beach was littered with people.
Now just a couple of photos to share a wee bit of what we saw.
