|So inviting - "come play on the beach"|
We wrapped up chores around 12:30 and launched the dinghy to explore 11 mile beach. We noticed sv Right Turn had not yet launched his dinghy so we popped by to offer a ride to the beach. For some reason, we chose to go ashore near one end of 11 mile beach and start walking. In hindsight, perhaps we should have gone ashore in the middle. We walked nearing all of the beach but this then meant we had to walk all the way back. We were very tired. Ok, we didn't walk the WHOLE thing but a good chunk of it!
|11 miles pink beach|
The beach is supposedly pink. At first I couldn't see it but as the waves came in and out I was finally able to see a pinkish tint at first in the tiny pink colored shells and then in the sand because it is made up of pulverized pink shells. Being on the leeward side of the island, it was super clean with little to no trash, seaweed, washed ashore Garmins, or such. However, we did find a dinghy kit washed up but left it in case someone lost it landing their dinghy on the beach and came back looking for it. Later we decided it had been at sea for some time and now washed up on the beach here in Low Bay Barbuda. If is there in the morning we will claim it.
