At Rum Cay
05 May 2012 | Rum Cay
After motoring the entire way to Long Island, Silvio and Varina took us on a LONG, adventurous dinghy ride to the northern tip of the island to see the monument built to honor the Lucayans. Little bit of a hike, but worth it. We were also able to swim a bit and of course Leo once again ate a ton of sand. He loves the water and the sand.
Set out at 0800 (see what I did there?) for Rum Cay. Finally, we were able to sail most of the 35 miles. 20 knot winds and 5 foot seas, calming to 17 and 3-4. We read that there is great snorkeling here and plan to do so today. We are anochored by Port Nelson, rolly but bearable. Leaving for Mayaguana (200 miles) tomorrow night.
