On Saturday, we slept in, as was our usual. This morning we planned to save our swimming for the afternoon since the previous morning had been a little chilly. Instead, we decided to bring our books to the beach and read while sitting out in beach chairs.

It was a little strange to see; the beach was bustling in a way that it wasn't the rest of our time there. There were other beach chair vendors who chairs were stacked and chained the rest of our trip, but on Saturday morning, all the chairs were set out and several beach bars were operating. One of the vendors actually mistook John and I for cruisers, and asked us when we had to be back to our boat. By about noon however, everyone from the cruise had cleared out, the vendors stacked up their chairs, and the extra bars closed up.
We decided to eat lunch this day at the one beach bar that was open everyday: Stanley's Welcome Bar. We heard one of the other patrons explaining that, years ago, when they first came to this beach, Stanley's and a restaurant on the far end were the only things on the beach. Now, there 6 or 7 restaurants. We started our lunch with some Conch Fritters, which were quite good, and then I had a Salmon Burger and John had a Bacon Cheese Burger.
After lunch, we went for a swim and read on the beach a little more. Then, we showered, ate some ice cream, and headed back to Myett's for some internet action. I brought my phone again to get some sunset pictures.
