Leaving the marina at a few hours before high tide - all checked out. Nice marina - low ratesl! No doubt as soon as we vacated our berth there was another round of "musical chairs (boats)" as motor yacht friends grouped closer together (there wasn't a single day without someone moving within the marina for some reason or another - very odd)!
Pleasant motor down the Bimin island chain - passing Turtle Rocks and the spooky , skeleton wreck of the Sapona, victim of a 1929 hurricane. Further south - Piquet Rocks, Holm Cay and Gun Cay - anchorage possibilities on our way back. For now though we were looking for a good easterly and southerly protection given the wind forecasts and weather changes. Water maker running - replenishing the fresh water tank for the next few days before turning in to North Cat Cay.
Anchored early afternoon - a private island with luxurious houses along their private shoreline, a yacht club and private airstrip - the life of ruch and famous! At least we were on our private yacht!
Evening bbq as we watched rain clouds pass by - althouigh not so fortunate in the night - heavy rain and winds meant a "rolling" night on anchor!!
