In Guana

We arrived in Guana Cay a couple days ago after spending four days in Marsh Harbor provisioning for the next two weeks. At which time, we hope to be in the states where prices are a little more reasonable. Marsh Harbor is a great place to stock up and wait out weather but there isn't much else to do there; just lots of shopping and restaurants, which our budget doesn't allow. There is a lot of music at night to 'rock' us asleep as the neighboring clubs celebrate it being Friday (or Tuesday, it doesn't really matter). Also in Marsh Harbour, there was an attempted boarding of a vessel in the middle of the night when we were there. A little too metropolitan for our liking. So when things settled down a bit, Beach Magic and Dream Catcher headed out for Guana Cay. On the way over, we decided to take a detour to Fowl Cay for an afternoon of snorkeling on a beautiful reef. While there, we swam with a turtle, witnessed a nurse shark sleeping on the bottom and saw a three-foot parrotfish. This may be the last snorkeling opportunity for us before our return to the U.S. We enjoyed the crystal clear emerald waters and quiet beach.

With only a couple more islands to visit in the Abaco Island chain, our time here is winding down. We really need the weather to improve so we can cross to the states. The official hurricane season begins June 1st and our insurance company requires that we be north of Cape Hatteras by June 1st.
