Norman’s Cay

We only spent a day here at Normans so we didn’t make it over to the plane wreck or other great snorkel spots. We did however enjoy some of the micro reefs around the boat. Michele explored the island via a small road network and brought back reports on how beautiful the west side was.  When we make our way north we will spent a little more time here. Normans has an interesting backstory in that in the 80’s it used to be owned and controlled by Carlos Lehder who was part of the Medelline drug cartel. For years the island was off limits to locals and tourists alike. The famous DC3 plane wreck that is in the bay was a part of the cocaine trade in that era. Now it’s a great snorkel spot.

I did manage to find our underwater camera and take some shots of one of the micro reefs. The pics don’t nearly show how beautiful the reef was. The day was a little cloudy and the camera isn’t the greatest so some the colors are muted. But hey, I did get the shots..:)

    • Hi Sue! I was hoping to be back soon enough to see everyone but we may not make it in time. I sure do miss all the happy hours with everyone!

  2. Someday, when I grow up, I want to be just like you…
    Happy Holidays guys and keep them coming. Cindy and I are plotting your trip on Google and enjoying it as well.
