A Little Adventure
24 January 2012 | Water Cay, The Jumentos
I spent the weekend in Long Island. One of the resorts there was open for the AFC Championship game. There was about 20 boats in the harbor and I think just about everyone was watching the game. Must be tuff to lose because of a field goal attempt kicked wide.... Last night I was invited for dinner by Pam and Olie on Dejarlo along with Conrad and Sally from It's About Time. It was a wonderful evening meeting new friends and a very well prepared meal. Table cloth and napkin rings....
A lot of the boats headed back to Georgetown this morning. I felt I needed some adventure so I took off for the Jumentos and Ragged Islands. This is what the Explorer Charts have to say: " Self reliance is essential in the Ragged Islands. Go with plenty of food and water, fuel, medicines and weather reporting equipment. Be certain that your crew has the competence and navigation skills before you travel to this remote area". "Little dots on a large scale chart - that's makes up the Ragged Island chain. The Ragged Islands are not just more southerly Exumas but rather unpopulated wilderness with only one tiny settlement, closer to Cuba than to Georgetown" OK then..... I'll let you know. Right now there is only me here and a small Bahamian fishing boat cleaning their catch. I am waiting for the sharks..... I guess I am not going to dive my anchor this afternoon. It'll be just fine!
