Ralph's Hash - over an hour each way
Along the route we stopped to check out the lunch menu at a lovely sea side restaurant, where I was impressed by their lighting fixtures, made from driftwood, coral, shells & sea glass...
A retired free diver started up the sea turtle sanctuary to help the endangered Hawksbill turtles. He raises the hatchlings until they are 5 years old and their chances of survival are then better.

We stopped for lunch at the Firefly where most of us chose their specialty chicken roti; though Gregg tried the coconut encrusted lion fish (delicious), and Ralph stayed with his comfort food of burger & fries.
