Tuna Poke on Lindsay’s Last Day

On the night before Lindsay was scheduled to fly home we decided to celebrate with Tuna Poke (it’s pronounced Poké) and Rosé Veuve Clicquot. We first had Tuna Poke in Hawaii on a trip to Kauai with Linds and Sean and two of their friends. It was made with raw tuna, avocado and some fruit,…

10 Knots & First Fish!

Monday, Feb 6th dawned with perfect winds for our passage to Georgetown – 15 knots from the ENE. This allowed us to sail all the way to Georgetown (the largest town in the Exuma chain) on a single tack. It was an excellent 7-hour sail, making an average of over 8 knots (at one point…

Iguanas!

We left Big Major and Staniel Cay Friday, Feb 3rd and made our way down to Bitter Guana Cay to get “up close and personal” with some of the local reptiles (check out the video below). They are slightly blind, but love fruit, so you can just toss a piece of fruit at them or…

Hawksbill Cay

This place is beautiful, exquisite really. We left Shroud Cay this morning at 7:45am for a small anchorage at the south end of Hawksbill Cay. The trip took us just over and hour and we timed it so we would arrive around high tide. The bay we are in, tied to a mooring buoy, is…

Shroud Cay

This is probably the most beautiful sandbar and swimming spot we have ever seen. We left Norman’s Cay at about 9:40am to head to the western bay of Shroud Cay. The difference between a cay and an island is that a cay has no fresh water source. This cay has tons of mangroves and waterways…
