The missing mark......

Something to consider when you cruise around here....
As we arrived fatigued at our island destination tention mounted as we searched in vein for the clearly marked (according to all the charts) rock pinnacle 3 ft. below the surface waiting to rip out the boats keel. Search as we may, there was no mark, no rock and no reduction in the tention either as we searched the entrance for the killer rock.
Despite this, we found our way into our very pretty anchorage off a nice beach and the mystery of the missing mark was solved, as it flashed impotently, secured 4ft. off the beach, being a very good drinks perch for holidaying Mexicans, marking an attractive beach bar (far better use than navigational aid).
Anyhow, we used our Kayaks to access said bar for a sunset Margarita, prior to the heavens opening for a night of rolling thunder and lightning (or was it the Nav mark flashing in the bar?)
