Ani's Beach

Welcome to Ani's Beach (aka Flamingo Cay)!  Brian and I headed to the beach first thing during our first morning at Flamingo.  We made a campfire ring, gathered some firewood, and pitched our backpacking tent to provide Ani some shade.  We wanted the scene set so that everyone could enjoy the beach throughout the day and into the evening.
