We made a short trip back to the mooring balls at Cambridge Cay and got there in time and with favorable weather to take a 3 mile dinghy ride across the inlet to Rebecca Falls (really just a tide fed rapids) and then a short walk to the "Bubble Bath" a spot where the surge from the sound comes into a small neck and crashes over the rocks into a pool and creates a Tide Pool and wave like the theme parks, only in real life. It was delightful, until Lynn lost her prescription glasses in a large surge and it took a half hour to find them, but we did.

Tuesday gave us the window to Dinghy to Compass Cay marina, walk the trails and enjoy the beautiful protected beach, have one of Tucker's famous burgers, watch people swimming with the sharks (notice I said WATCH!!) and take a smooth ride back to the boats.

Wednesday was the weather day, and we watched the effects of the wind blowing for the first half of the day, and then we dinghied ashore and walked to the North end of the Island. There we watched some boats sailing toward the mooring field wich we knew was full due to the impending weather. We wlaked back to the dinghy and saw that one of the incoming boats, DUET, had grounded outside the entrance on a reef. Brian and Steve boarded the dinghy, and along with nearly a dozen others in the mooring field went out to get her off. After a lot of coaxing, pushing, pulling, and kedging we were able to free her and get her into the anchorage adjacent to the mooring field. Whew from us and them.

Another windblown night, and a decent morning made it possible for us to head back to Sampson Cay for a slip for the weekend to sit out the big blow (40-50kt. Wind predicted) in the safety of a marina. More tomorrow.
