We decided to head up to Staniel Cay on 3/1. We have our underwater camera charged and want to get some photos of Thunderball Grotto. There were lots of fish “fins” and lots of swim “fins”. But we did get some cool photos. A lot of tour boats bring people to the Grotto and some of the young and foolish ones jump into it from the hole in the roof. I was glad John did not get jumped on while he was taking some photos. And while we are “young” at heart, we did not jump!
Staniel Cay has some cute homes and one night we got to see the “green” flash at sunset. At night some of the light in the homes had evil eyes! Spooky! We spent several day going from Staniel Cay to Pig Beach. I did not go back to see the pigs since we already had photos of them and I had nothing to feed them. They can bite you.
On 3/5 we headed up to Warderick Wells in the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park. After we got there we took a dingy ride over to Rendezvous Beach and took a little swim. We tried to sit on the beach for a while but the “noseems” were bad. There was a north easterly wind coming up and the Emerald Rock field was full. The office said it has not been full like that for several years. There was a bit of a tussle. There are about 6 mooring balls for very large ships (numbers 1-6) and small boats are asked not to take them. Well a small boat had been on one for a night already and had paid for 2 nights when a very large power boat came in and started to complain. He was making a big jerk of himself and tried to make the small boat move. The wonderful park employee took responsibility for the mistake as she had allowed the small boat to be there. The power boat did get a big ball but what a show it was.
On 3/7 we headed up to Hawksbill Cay and enjoyed a dingy ride and some beach time. We stayed one night and then headed to Shroud Cay for a night. On 3/9 we got up and headed to Highborne Cay for a few nights. We hope to try out the restaurant to see if Katie and Christy would enjoy it when they come down. I just hope we remember to spring forward on Sunday the 10th! We islanders do kind of forget about things like that and also what day of the week it is. But we never ever forget where we put our bottle of rum!
