Flying Rays

17 February 2017

The first time we anchored at Cambridge Cay on our way south we heard a couple of big splashes but could never see the fish that jumped. This time around we solved the mystery and were treated to an aerial show by a huge Eagle Ray; as mentioned earlier this anchorage is in the park and the fish thrive in the "no take zone". There was a huge eagle ray, at least 4 foot diameter that kept jumping beside our boat, without warning he would soar 5 feet out of the water before doing a nose dive. We were treated to his antics numerous times during our 4 day stay.

The front finally blew through yesterday afternoon with a heavy rain squall and gusts to 35 knots and it was all done by dinner time. We had Craig and Sharon over for dinner last night since we were going separate ways today, it's amazing in the cruising world how close friends get in such a short time.

The forecast for today was light and variable winds, however someone didn't get the memo. We motor sailed into 13-17 knots of wind most of the way to Rock Sound; fortunately, the seas were low and we ended up having an enjoyable ride. We are safely tucked in the harbour awaiting the arrival of "Corret" who made the crossing with us.
