Cambridge Cay, Exumas
09 April 2012 | Cambridge Cay
We entered the Exumas Land and Sea Park and took a mooring ball to wait out a nasty storm. The Park has always drawn us to it for its beauty and remoteness. It is the oldest national park, established in 1959 and is over 176 square miles. It included 15 large islands and many more tiny ones. There is a house or two here and there but the vast majority do not have permanent (human) residents. The park is a no take zone for both land and sea so the sea life and reefs abound. There are walking and hiking paths on some of the islands but they aren’t for the faint of heart and are riddled with caves, blowholes and what we fondly term ‘moonrocks’.
The picture is of a group of us sharing the Cambridge Cay anchorage, celebrating Easter on an uninhabited island. The boats are Andaxi, Liesel, Greenstone and Dreamcatcher. Very nice celebration: sharing friendship, food and a fantastic sunset.
