Everybody in the water.  Time to snorkel!

P3250249

First an artificial reef off Firefly restaurant on Elbow Cay.  Lots of fish.

P3250278

This is called a scrawled filefish.  Almost translucent.

P3250253

We were entertained with conch cleaning – for conch fritters at the restaurant.  A special hammer pierces the shell at the top so a knife can be inserted to cut the conch from the shell.  Now he’s pulling the little critter out and then he’ll clean it until just the edible conch is left.

Then on to Mermaid Reef off Marsh Harbour.

Coral heads.

P3250331

With lots of beautiful fish.  Here are my best efforts at identifying them:  a sergeant major.

A parrotfish?

P3250344

A blue tang – they always look like they’re smiling.

P3250315

The one with the “eyeball” is a foureye butterflyfish and the “eye” is at the back end of the fish.  I believe the yellow one is a grunt.

P3250350

Here’s an angelfish.

P3250351

This is a queen angelfish.P3250337

P3250352

And a parrotfish.
