The Pigs Who Live on Great Major's Cay, Exuma Islands, Bahamas
After lunch we went for a spuddle on Baby Beez to the nearby Great Major's Cay, we had been told about the feral pigs who live there and cool off in the water. Well now, as seasoned cruisers we have met the goats up in the trees in Morocco, our new friends the stingrays and I'm even getting to grips with treating nurse sharks like puppy dogs (in small numbers - no herd thanks), BUT PIGS as a TOURIST ATTRACTION. If it's good enough for the likes of Johnny Depp and Nicholas Cage, well what were we to do. BUT nothing could have prepared us for this...............
One came hurtling out to greet us with great speed and grace
She followed us to shore and promptly sat down awaiting food. Bear commented on the length of her hooter
Meantime the rest of the gang were busy with tourists, paddling, resting and generally having fun
I had a sudden need to give my favourite porker a slice of leftover pizza, calling and making her swim once more
That was a success until she launched herself upon a very offended Baby Beez to ask for more, an image that will stay with us forever
                     AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE
