I am bashing this blog out in the café at Palm Cay Marina which is where we checked into the country and had our papers stamped four months ago. Amongst many jobs from washing through to victualing we have just handed in our papers as we leave for the US tomorrow. The weather looks good so we will do it one long hop to either West palm beach in one night or St Augustine in two. We shall see how it pans out. I cant tell you how the Bahamas have charmed us with their beauty, variety and friendly nature. Put them on your list for they are an absolute gem. This drone shot by Travis Gomez captures some of its magic
The following morning I returned to the mangroves on a paddle board and there is no doubt that that is the way to do it. I got up close and personal to Heron, Duck, Egrit, Turtle and all sorts of fish. The absolute highlight was shadowing a lemon Shark as it cruised about on the hunt. I was only a few feet from its tail until it shot off on short hunting sprints. We then resumed our mutual cruising until the next feed. An amazing experience that will stay with me forever.
