Shroud Cay, Bahamas

18 April 2024

sunny

Shroud Cay was their favorite place in the Exumas and it is probably my favorite place in the entire Bahamas so far. After breakfast we took the dingy down the river full of turtles. At first we weren’t seeing any but then we ended up finally seeing about 30-40, as well as a small nurse shark.

We cruised slowly along the river until we came to what cruisers call washing machine beach. To describe it as gorgeous isn’t even doing it justice. And we had it all to ourselves!!!

Phil took me up to the top of a small hill where the CIA watched Norman’s Cay and Pablo Escobar’s drug running. The views were some of the best in my life and we could see Anita and Little Man way down on the beach.

For the ride back to the boat I was on the paddle board trying to get video’s of turtles. I got a great one that was exciting to watch later.
Lunch was some charcutterie and then a three hour sail to Highbourne Cay to anchor for the night.
We relaxed around the boat until dinner which was a Mexican Salad with Chicken and it was so so good.

A pretty sunset closed out the best of days.
