Bonfire on Uninhabited Tropical Island (Watch for Cannibals)
28 March 2009 | Big Major Spot, Exuma Cays, Bahamas
After filling our gasoline jugs (powers dingy and generator) we headed off for our baths, on a secluded section of beach. Fresh water is in short supply, so when we can, we bath in seawater..preferably in shallow water..and preferably without ton of people around.
The kids and I got inspired and went and got some chicken out of the freezer and began to thaw; while building bonfires on the beach. We barbequed the chicken while enjoying building fires into the night and roasting s'mores and marshmallows. We came home dirty and smelling like wood-smoke. I think it was a highlight for the kids..they want to do it again.'
Tomorrow, if weather is still okay, we are planning to sail south towards Little Farmers Cay..hopeful we'll get our propane tank filled there..they're still out here and we're coming up on a week of eating cold food.
