Not what the Chamber of Commerce had in mind
14 January 2011 | Big Majors Spot
Cloudy, still blowing NE 20
There are twenty sailboats tucked in the calmer lee of tall Big Majors Spot, as the NE wind continues to blow 20 knots with mostly grey clouds. (Who was Big Major and why was this his Spot!) Some may know this Spot is a well known cruising stop for the pigs who like to be fed here, some so much they swim out to your boat.
I'm sure Alex had an image in his mind of feeding the iguanas back on Allens Cay. He certainly has a different image now after a hefty sow sauntered out onto the beach and was not in a mood to be toyed with. Something like "Feed me and feed me NOW!" Even tried to climb into our dinghy after the empty container of vegetable scraps. It was vaguely amusing until we had to get assertive with an oar. Our recommendation: let 'em swim out.
