Rock Sound

21 February 2017
Rock Sound is living up to it's reputation as a great stop for cruisers in Eleuthra; so, we think we'll be here for a few more days as the latest round of fronts move through. It is one of the few harbours that offers protection for all wind directions, granted you do have to move a mile or so for the best protection on a given day but at least you don't have to leave town. Besides a safe harbour, the town offers numerous things to keep us busy and the stores are well stocked with a good selection of groceries. Eleuthra is one of the few areas in the Bahamas where there is fertile enough soil to grow fresh vegetables which, we have missed and are now thoroughly enjoying.

There is a cave complex about a mile south of town that we explored the other day, what a find! There is a ladder that leads down about 20 feet to the cave floor. From the bottom you can wander through the caves which have numerous openings to the surface. The most amazing aspect were the roots of trees on the surface that have grown straight down to the cave floors and then nurture the tress above. The root systems range from string size to 10 inches in diameter and for the most part hang straight down. This is a good example of what gravity can do. Today we're heading to the east side of the island to an ocean front cafe with s few friends.
