June 16, 2010... St John South Coast

Wednesday we went a-hunting for a good place to wait out the tropical disturbance that was an on-again, off-again possible tropical storm, coming our way in the Fri-Sat timeframe.  Finding Great Lameshur Bay on St. John's south coast, we had smooth, protected waters and a big hill providing wind protection from the east.  Immediately we jumped in for some great snorkeling, seeing big permit fish, trunkfish, and all the regular reef fish.  Plus, a terrific turtle posed for pictures.  Swimming back to Anhinga we found a barracuda hanging out under the keel - takes your breath away!
