After another good dive and lunch, we headed to the Carambola Botanical Gardens which is a 40 acre forest. It must be a 'bad' time of year because we saw no fruit and few flowers. We did see a few cacao pods-
And this lovely Heliconias=
The walk was through all kinds of trees like mahogany and bamboo, as well as spices like ginger and cinnamon. We should probably have paid an extra $10 US each for a guide and gotten more out of our visit, but we didn't so.....
There's a view of Anthony Key, a ritzy resort, from the top-
After, we came back for Happy Hour and more Monkey Lalas. Probably the most interesting thing for me at the botanical garden was learning that a Monkey LaLa is more than a drink - it's an actual lizard, the striped Basilisk Lizard. We didn't see one of them either!
We're diving again tomorrow and then who knows!
