Our Last Day: Norman Island

On our last day of sailing, we left Great Harbour, Josh Van Dyke and headed to Norman Island. Normal Island is popular with sailors for its excellent snorkeling spots, but by this point in our holiday we had done quite enough snorkeling and headed to Norman Island for a luxurious afternoon on the beach.

But first we had to endure quite a choppy sail over. There was no chance of reading a book or sleeping so I took to posing and sunbathing.

Norman island is an uninhabited privately-owed island which offers two rather divine restaurant/beach clubs.

We headed straight to the better known Pirates Bight, following the recommendations of sailors before us.

But first, we had to eat *duh* and what else but shirley temples, salad, fried chicken and nachos!!

After lunch, the piercingly blue water was enough to encourage me to have a quick dip before we had to head back to the marina and eventually back to Brussels.

    Lovely pictures. We just returned from our trip around the islands last night. I’m desperately trying to solidify our memories. The Bight was right up there. Beautiful caves and a great resort. Thanks for sharing.
