24:42.63N 76:49.62W We did some exploring on shroud Cay, took the dinghy and Tony’s kayaks into some of the creeks and mangroves and later went by dinghy and outboard to a creek that goes right through the island to the Atlantic side which was very pretty. Today we have moved on to Highbourne Cay and hope to do some diving, the weather isn't great at the moment with showers and thunderstorms forecast for about a week – I guess we can’t have good weather all the time! At least it will give us a chance to wash the topside of the boat if it rains hard enough as its been a while since we have done it having not been in a marina since the Canaries! The Bahamas are amazing, the water is so clear and the beaches so clean. Most of the islands are uninhabited and everywhere is totally unspoilt. We have been travelling along the Exuma Bank in about 4 metres of water and anchor in about 3 which in itself is a unique experience. We have heard from many who have sailed around the world that the Bahamas are their favourite and it’s easy to understand why. There are no cruise ships here, no ferries bringing in tourists just people in their own boats.
