Sunburst Over The Bay

so… on our second last day in tobago, we chartered a boat to take us from batteaux bay around to pirate’s bay. little did we know that we would be in for the ride of our lives! the waters are their roughest around the end of the year (we were there from christmas eve to new year’s day). we first headed to the st. giles islands where we witnessed thousands of birds flying around – the main island is a bird sanctuary and is uninhabited. next was witnessing the water rush through london bridge (photo below) – an outcrop with an arch through the middle. we then saw dolphins swimming around us, as we made our way to pirate’s bay. alas, photographing during this boat ride yielded very little, as we were quite literally being tossed around on a small 20′ diving boat. but trust me when i tell you it was a ride i won’t soon forget! this was our destination for the first leg of the trip: pirate’s bay – a little cove inside the larger man-o-war bay. we were rewarded by a beautiful sunburst through the clouds above!
