Woke up with energy today, and dressed quickly for the day. Even though I had to wear a suit for today, decided to risk a quick inspection of the island during the early morning light to assess whether we could bring anyone over. Heading back I saw Darcy sitting outside enjoying her morning coffee substitute, and I can't think of a nicer sight.

In the afternoon most of the family took naps, and then I pleaded with everyone to go for a quick island visit before dusk. We all piled on, including the two dogs. Some dogs on the canal bank started barking at some ducks, and daisy hopped in the water to join in. Cut the motor, the boat went over the dog, everyone stayed calm and we got turned around. Daisy was paddling in circles and we made it over and got her back in the boat.

Arriving at the island everyone enjoyed walking around on the trails and seeing the mangroves and pines and campsites. Daisy dried off by rolling in the white sand.
