Day 12 - Bahama Cruising (Highbourne Cay - Northern Exumas)
Another day for exploring - that is after a couple of boat jobs, battery charging and making water. We set off in the dinghy to investigate the marina on the southern end of the Cay - a little rough going through "Highbourne Cut" with tidal swells and wind for our Mini-Magic - but we made it safely into the marina - avoiding dark shapes in the water on the way - coral rocks or big fish...(?). Beautiful beaches and a very quiet secluded (private island) spot. The dark shapes turned out to be sting rays and nursing sharks - picking up the scraps of fish from local fishing boats!! We found a small grocery store - they even stocked fresh bread BUT then we found the bar - perched above the beach with spectacular views over the cut and Cays further south - and the golf tournament to watch - so no bread for us as the shop had closed when we left the bar!! Back tot he boat (an easier ride as the wind had dropped) for sundowners and bbq. Wallace and Gromit "A Matter of Loaf and Death" - just to rub in the lack of bread - finished the day!
