After too much wind we ended up with not enough wind and decided to stop at Low Caye, Providencia Island, Colombia in lieu of motoring. Low Caye is at the north end of the reef and about 6 miles north of the island of Providencia. Striking blue water laps gently at the hull as we sit anchored over a white sand surrounded by a horseshoe shaped barrier reef. Huge ocean swells crash and roar as they break on the reef outside and create perfect white noise for a well deserved nap. But, who has time for a nap with emerald coral heads dotting the inside of the lagoon and perfectly clear eighty two degree water teaming with tasty fish for lunch? We arrive around 10:30 and by 11 we were off exploring the underwater world. Three tasty reef fish a large queen conch and a huge lobster later we are ready to break for lunch and it's already 1:30. After lunch Kathy succumbs to a well deserved nap, even though she is a confirmed 'fake napper' and rarely actually falls asleep. Today she was out solid. Still a little amped up from the passage to slumber this afternoon I found distraction with a new book 'The Glass Castle' by Jeannette Walls and kept the sleep at bay.

Perhaps we'll stay a few days and continue to enjoy this bit of paradise. We're not in that big of a rush to get to Panama.
