And everything worked out. I am so so unbelievable happy to report this story has a happy, albeit slightly stressful, ending. We are card carrying PADI scuba divers! I don't for a minute regret doing the course on Little Corn either. We saw a turtle, rays and sharks among many reef loving fish, living reefs, conch, flounder (which look nothing like in the Little Mermaid BTW), and so much underwater life. I hope we can return one day and dive more of the island sites.
Here's how we spent the last bit of our vacation.
Last happy hour at Casa Iguana
A goodbye view or my hammock perch
The ocean view from our Casita
Taking in the view for one last breakfast on the deck
Admiring the beach while waiting for our food
My last island breakfast of coconut french toast (with coconut maple syrup on the side) and scrambled eggs
Flowers I admired all week and finally photographed
Using the phone cam to access my sunburn status after 14 days, note the creeper in all black behind me, who wear that plus Doc Martins to a tropical island?!?
Paid our hotel bill and enjoyed a final rum and mango juice.
Little corn Island won our hearts. I am sure we will return one day and I can only hope it is as natural and awesome then as it is now. I fear it may soon be exploited but it is a true island paradise.
