Marsh Harbour to Treasure Cay

With friends Steve & Sheila safely onboard we left the Harbour View Marina in Marsh Harbour bound for Treasure Cay, a distance of 15 miles. With a favourable breeze building through the early afternoon we had a 'blistering' (for a heavily laden Ajaya that is) off wind sail all the way there, anchoring in the protected harbour and taking the dinghy ashore for a walk on the 3 mile long crescent-shaped sandy beach, rated as one of the best beaches in the Caribbean (by the folks at Treasure Cay). They certainly have a claim as it's one of the best we've visited on our travels.
Today we are spending the day in the Marina at Treasure Cay for some more relaxation and walking, maybe even a swim if we are brave enough whilst the next cold front moves through the area overnight. Tomorrow promises to be sunny and warm so we will go with the favourable N-NE wind following the cold front and head for somewhere like Great Guana Cay.Life is good!
