The Exumas!

NOTE: Technical difficulties today. Limited pics. Sucks, too cuz I have some good ones I wanted to post!! Frustrating. Sloooow connection here at Warderick Wells, Exumas......

VERY COOL. Exumas are a string of little islands running North/South through the middle of the Bahamas. Most are uninhabited, with beautiful turquoise shallow water all around, and white sand beaches. The first was Allen's Cay. Home of the Allen's Cay Iguanas. Lots of boats in this anchorage, as it's a popular landing point for cruisers departing Nassau. Spent a night there, I slept up in the cockpit under the stars and breeze. Next day, we sailed from Allen's Cay South to Hawksbill Cay. Perfect sailing conditions: 10-15kts Easterly breeze, minimal seas, 20ft deep turquoise water all around..... just like you see in the cruising charter ads in sailing magazines. Hawksbill Cay is very cool.... only two other boats here, and it's a State Park with moorings just yards from the beach. Today we sail on South to Warderick Wells. I'd love to shower and get online... maybe do some laundry?
