Immigration is closed for Easter, so 4 boats came to the Water Cays.  It was lovely and quiet and the little town on one of the cays is clean and simple.
We went snorkelling and it was rougher than we expected.  The weather forecast had been not much wind for the next few days.  I put out 150’ in 15’ of water, prevailing wind East, or NE.  Huh, last night it went West, or SW, the direction you really do not want to be here in.  The wind was up to 30 knots and I was up all of the very rough night.  The wind direction put me in shallow water, so I had to keep an eye on the depth and the fact that my anchor is on hard sand.  I am going to re-anchor a bit further out when it has calmed down a bit more.
