Treasure Cay

Puffin is now anchored at Treasure Cay, the Abacos, an exotic looking resort area offering a protected marina and anchorage as well as a magnificent beach that seems to extend to the horizons.

We're here to see our good friends from Maine, Gerri and Alan on Civil Twilight, wintering in the Abacos in their beautiful ebony-hulled sloop with its double headsails. Over the past several days they've shown us around the area and capped it off with a lobster hunt (more on that in another post) and an evening "cocktail cruise". The cruise was a fun, slow motion drift down a nearby canal with both dinghies tied together, wine and munchies at hand, while gazing at the boats and houses that lined the embankments.

The lassitude that has prevailed over much of this trip has yet to desert us. Yesterday found Puffin's crew poolside at the resort alternately relaxing in the pool and lounging poolside from lunch until snacktime, 5 hours later. I reveal this with little sense of guilt and entirely more concern for the appropriate sunblock to combat the ravages of wind and a brilliant sun also reflecting off the pool.

Puffin's plucky crew nonetheless prevailed on through an evening of wine and snacks with Civil Twilights's always entertaining twosome and finally collapsed into bed, contentedly consumed by the day's challenges.


We spotted a green heron on the waterfront in Spanish Wells. First green heron we've seen on the trip.
