Northern Abacos

06 May 2008 | Manjack Cay, Abacos
Beth - hot and humid
We've enjoyed a couple of idyllic days at Manjack Cay - alternatively named Munjack or Nunjack. (There must be story there but I don't know it.) We dinghied out to an ocean beach and followed a shady and twisty path across the cay to another, collected sea biscuits, fished conchs up from the shallow waters, chatted with Leslie - one of the owners of the beautiful property here. We dinghied slowly up the mangrove lined creek and then drifted back out again on the ebbing tide, dangling our feet in the water and listening to birdsongs - and looking for the turtle that we heard was there. I guess it wasn't our day to see him because we never did find him.

We enthusiastically accepted Nancy's invitation to celebrate her birthday with a Mexican feast aboard Solitaire. Sapphire provided yummy quesadillas and tortilla chips with an interesting new dip. Solitaire dished up scrumptious chicken enchiladas served with a tasty bean and corn salad from Restless, and Madcap provided a chocolate cake with a little dash of cinnamon and chili powder to make it Mexican. We played Catch Phrase - great fun - and had a fine old time of it.

We are off northward to Powell Cay next and then onward. If I get a chance to connect again, I'll let you know about the other cays we hope to visit on our way north. Connections may be iffy.

If a weather window opens, we'll cross to the US next week. The plan is to depart from Double Breasted Cays and head for Fernandina Beach. All that is highly flexible depending on wind and sea state. We'll go when the wind is right for a sail and the rollers don't crash over our decks!
