Beautiful Place

This was a short trail off the main Reef Bay Trail. It was shaded and through a beautiful forested area. Saw some hermit crabs, lots of little lizards and deer. The petrogplyhs were neat – noted 3 areas with symbols, some faces and a cross. Very cool spot; the forest, little trickle of water on the rocks, pools of water, the dragonflies flying by and mongoose scurrying about – it all creates a great sense of communion with nature.
