24:10.95N 76:27.61W After a 30 odd mile sail and  having negotiated the shallows and reefs on the way in we are now anchored at Big Majors Spots which is a popular anchorage near the settlement of  Staniel Cay, the main attraction being the local “wild” pigs who as you approach the shore in a dinghy swim out to greet you looking for hand outs, they are obviously used to being fed by the boaters and yes I cut up some carrot and cabbage to give them not quite expecting them to want to get in the dinghy with us! They were a little over keen to feed which is sad but we have some great photos of them swimming out to us – one of the pigs has a seagull sitting on its back. There are a few things to do here, tomorrow we are going to snorkel in the Thunderball Grotto used in the James Bond film Thunderball.
