We concluded that Barracuda was after the Little tunnies and ended on our hook. Later on, when captain cleaned the Barracuda, he found the Little tunny's tail in Barracudas stomach.
We anchored in Coco bay already at 2 in the afternoon.
I'm pretty proud of these photos, I think this is the best my camera and I can do.
The individual Tunicates are half to one inch in size, this whole formation, that was attached to Gorgonian, was of the size of a grapefruit. It was pretty difficult to spot them four meters below the surface, as they are almost translucent. If you look closely, there are some Tunicates also attached to the ground in the lower left corner of the photo.
The blue ones are called Bluebell Tunicates and are a bit smaller than white ones.
Next morning I took some more photos.
This is a sponge growing on a Gorgonian, and around it are White stingers (a kind of Hydroids).
Alenka, Grega and captain dinghied into Codrington to take the tour of eastern part of Barbuda. My stomach got upset for some unknown reason (too many pancakes the night before maybe?), so I stayed on the boat.
There are caves on the eastern coast of Barbuda, where Arawaks (the first people in Caribbean) once lived.
And there are Tropicbirds nesting in the cliffs.
This is Heron photographed from the water on our swim back to boat.
At noon we sailed back to Antigua. The ride was nice and fast, with just right amount of wind and small waves, for average sailing speed of 7,6 knots. We were all enjoying it.
They saw a Green throated Carib on the way.
We had a nice evening with fish curry and wine. On Saturday, after a short swim, it was time to sail to Jolly Harbour. Alenka and Grega were returning home on an evening flight. We all enjoyed the glorious summer day till the last minutes.
