Yesterday’s morning adventure: to dinghy a mile or two around the corner to Shark Creek, a very shallow mangrove-lined Creek which bisects the island west to East. Mike from S/V Dark N Stormy suggested we gather our snorkel gear and hit the creek on the rising tide because at the other side out near Sugar Beach is a great place to see lots of creatures in the sea.Off we zoomed. My driver was Don and Jim hitched a ride with Mike and Carl. Mike has a 20hp on his dinghy and Don has a 9.9. Both got up on plane and after a bit of a bumpy ride we entered the creek.It soon narrowed into tunnels and depths were barely a foot. Mike explained that this was a great nursery for baby black tip reef sharks. Sadly just before we reached the other side, Mike’s motor died. No luck with repair attempts so we towed him back through the tunnels and finally into the harbour.Once back at the dock, the guys immediately set to work on the motor and got it running so maybe we’ll try again in the next day or two.
