25:05.32N 77:12.29W  Rose Island – Salty Toes
We were working our way back to Nassau to pick up family who were coming for a visit. Chatting to our friends on mv Marisol, we decided to go to Rose Island, before Nassau. There is a popular beach bar and restaurant there – Salty Toes, which we thought we would try.  On arrival, we realised the southerly anchorage was too rough, so we decided to go around the back side of the island. It looked poorly surveyed on our charts , with lots of shallow patches. Luckily Dave on Marisol, has a much shallow draft and he went ahead of us. in the end we both found a good enough spot to anchor, right off the pub.  There were at least 50 “day” boats in the area, coming over from Nassau for a day in the sun on the beautiful stretches of sandy beaches.
