This service uses a satellite uplink for all traffic. On it's best day, it will seem slow compared to any land-based service. It's 22 thousand miles to the satellite, which means it's 44 thousand miles before your request hits the Internet, and 44 thousand for the data to come back. No matter how you slice it, 88 thousand miles may take more than a few
seconds for a response.

We left Elizabeth Harbour on Friday and sailed up Exuma Sound to Staniel Cay where we will cross over to the "banks"
The two big features here are the Thunderball Cave where the Bond film of the same name was filmed and the Swimming Pigs.
A picture is worth a 1000 words.
Sunday we will move up to Highborne Cay.
I will add to this blog when time permits. The short story is, we hired a taxi on Thursday and went to visit the "property" in Little Exuma. It turns out it is about a 2 minute walk to what is called Tropic of Cancer Beach. How cool it that.
We spent the afternoon feeding the Rays at Volleyball beach and doing our share to deplete the stock of Kalik beer at the Chat & Chill.
