Back in the sun on the Island, Dad had a few more days to chill out and enjoy the sun. We went for some dives and the delicious Friday special burger at The Lobster Pot..
The first few months of 2016 consisted of numerous sporting events such as gaelic, volleyball and my first ever touch rugby games..
It was New Year’s eve and I was driving home with an off feeling – I really wanted to get off island. Next thing I know, my mate from Bahamas messaged and told me to get over ASAP.. Next thing I know I was racing home, threw some clothes into a bag and raced to the airport. At the counter I had three minutes to book before the counter closed. I booked.
November meant the start of conching season!! This was so much fun.. We took a few kayaks and swum around out the front of my mates parents place where we went freediving down to pick up the conch we spotted.
I had only been away for just over a year but I was lucky enough to fit in a trip home to visit the family.
Back on the island it was the cruisy lifestyle once again with an afternoon on Sandy Cay, a little island where my friends had built a shelter, making the most of the little surf there was.
Boom – myself, my housemate, Lou, and another friend of ours, Dave, managed to land ourselves seats on the last direct flight to and from Panama City with Cayman Airways for the July long weekend.
It was a late afternoon flight on the Thursday to Panama City where we were to spend the first night. Out for some food and then a chilled night ready for a super early start to catch a short one-hour internal flight to Bocas del Toro (translates to “Mouths of the Bull”).
