Exuma Park Adventure
At first I thought that this sightseeing would be a little boring and not very interesting at all. After a quick dinghy ride against a 2 or 3 knot current we tied up to the park dinghy dock and went out hiking the many trails on the island. As always I picked a location on the map and planned my attack to achieve my goal of making it to the top of Boo-Boo Hill in good time and little effort. As I hiked and studied the very uneven ground which was made up of ancient lava rock I found each step had to be calculated as the old stones shift quickly under your feet which caused me to worry about twisting my ankle or taking a spill. After working up a sweat I stopped and looked around and saw nothing but rocks, mud, water, and brush. I thought to myself that this was one boring place that reminded me of an old dust bowl town all washed up. But then after letting my eyes wonder around the ground it started to show signs of life and then one lizard and then another and then I could hear many different sounds of birds, waves pounding off in the distant rock cliffs sounding off like cannons. I looked out over the islands and you could see how the land formed out of the ocean. Needless to say I discovered that I need to stop and look at the boring to see the most amazing things come to life. Although I am not convinced that listening to boring people is very amazing yet, just saying!
