After we unpacked a bit, we headed down to the docks and started checking out the sailboats. Before too long, we met David, who maintains the boats and other watersports equipment, and chatted with him for quite awhile before heading out to dinner. Before we left the beach, he used a machete to chop the top off a fresh coconut from a palm on the property and gave it to us to drink the delicious milk -- just like on Survivor!
Afterwards, we had a delicious dinner of fresh fish, cole slaw, and black beans and rice at The Fish House.
While we were having a drink on the dock and awaiting the sunset, we had one of the highlights of our vacation. I saw a pair of nostrils surface right at the waters by the dock and realized that unless a hippo was swimming around down there, it was a manatee! We jumped up to look and could see its large body underwater. I quickly snapped a photo, showing the shadowy body swimming away, but it didn't stick around for long, unfortunately. All our new Canadian friends ran over to see it, but most were a bit too late. You'll have to look closely at this photo, but you should be able to make out its slightly lighter-colored body underwater.
