On our Way to Green Turtle Bay

Along our travels.DSC04847.JPG

The is the digger sifting sand out of the channel for the tugs and barges.  We found they place the sand in the barges and leave them in the middle of the river for the tows to take elsewhere.

Found a couple of turtles on a rock this is the first real turtles I have seen.  I asked John to stop and turn around so I could get some pictures which he did and there was a tow up ahead of us that was sleeping according to AIS.

He was not and when I looked up he was bearing down on our location real fast but we were able to get out of his way..

These cows where on the side of the bank when we were coming past a quarry.  Take a look at the trees with all the dust on them they look silver.
