Somehow Santa managed to find Quest nestled among the other vessels and left us bulging Christmas Stockings that occupied most of our morning.

Snorkeling on Christmas Day is not such a bad way to while away the hours. We took some of our newly acquired toys to the beach to play, spent a good bit of time in the water and the boys even took a short hike. Chris and Courtney on S/V Dharma (we met them in Bimini) happened to dink to the same little beach with their boys, Ben and Cole, and we all put Dan’s new water-balloon launcher into attack mode. I don’t think we ever hit anything but we sure aimed at every available target. All the anchored boats breathed a sigh of relief when we all finally left the beach for better snorkeling grounds. Thunderball Grotto (where the movie was filmed) is rife with inquisitive fish just waiting for your visit at low tide.
Dinner at the Staniel Cay Yacht Club was a delightful affair. There were probably 100 people gathered for the surf and turf meal that was served at 7:00. There were children, young adults as well as old farts like us all mingling around together. Many thanks to the Staniel Cay Yacht Club owners and staff for their wonderful party! The gracious wait staff graciously gave of their holiday to make our evening magical.
