We went to the bike shop to get our mopeds. Brian had ridden a moped before so he had no problem with it. He ended up renting one for 3 days for $170. James had a hard time controlling the moped so we decided that we would just use the public transportation, which was the most economic way to travel around the island.
Brian and Susan headed to Horseshoe Bay on their moped. James and I went to wait for the bus. The cash fare for 3-zone was $3/person. We didn’t know where to get off the bus and the driver wouldn’t stop unless somebody pressed the “stop” button or someone was waiting at the bus station. Luckily, most drivers were nice and they would announce the next stop if it was a tourist attraction.
We met Brian and Susan at the parking lot of Horseshoe Bay. This is by far the BEST beach I’ve ever been to. James couldn’t wait to take pictures as soon as he saw the turquoise water lol. The water was so clear and the sand was so fine that it made me never want to go to Jersey shore again. The rock formations were pretty. The waves were quite big as it was very windy. We got some good pictures though. There was an area for snorkeling at Horseshoe Bay but there were only a couple of fish.
After having lunch at the Beach House, we went to Jobson Cove hoping to see more fish. Brian and Susan drove their bike of course. James and I went on foot. It took us some time to walk from Horseshoe to Jobson Cove. The Cove was a secluded area and there were only a couple of people. There was an area that was full of pink sand. There weren’t many fish but Susan spotted a giant fish while she was standing on the shore. We missed it as we were on the other side of the water. By the time we went to where she said the fish was it was gone.
We had a nice dinner at Blu which is on the Belmont Golf Course. Then we went to Flanagan's Outback Sports Bar to watch the Yankee game. (Brian is a big Yankee fan.) They had twenty-two wide screen HDTVs – some playing the Yankee game, some playing the Giant game. Pretty cool.
