On to the Caves
12 March 2019 | Rudder Cut Cay, Exumas
With as much as we love our private anchorage we are forging on to the caves today up along Rudder Cut Cay, Musha, Cave, Goat and Darby Cays. Most of these Cays are private. Goat is owned by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw and Musha is owned by David Copperfield.
Along some of the Cays you will see caves and a number of no trespassing signs, but usually as in the states you can go to tidal mark on the beach. We took that opportunity with Jaxon on Darby Cay until a goat came rushing down to the beach .......we quickly picked up the sand ball so he would not be chased or vice versa.
Greg wanted to dive on the piano that is at the bottom of the water in about 15 foot of water. The current is so strong, we anchored high above it and drifted towards it. He got a video and a few pictures which I hope to post later. When he got in the dinghy is when all the “fun” started. Jaxon was in the dinghy with me and was so excited running around as he saw Greg jump back in......he ran around me on the outside edge of the dinghy and fell into the water. The current was carrying him away quickly so Greg hopped in to grab him and I pull up the anchor and motor over to where they were. It was a reality check for us all.....Jaxon still has no fear being just a pup, and while I like that about him, we still have to protect and remain vigilant about his life vest.
Back at Ti Amo we enjoy the beauty around and the quietness of the anchorage........until.........a 50 foot Leopard Catamarn pulls up with four boys all about 10 years old and under. They are rowdy and having the time of their lives. Dad is blowing up with paddle boards and they are visiting the surrounding boats. Tommy came to visit us and give Jaxon a few kisses.......he was a sweet kid. They hail from Ft. Lauderdale and there are actually six children and mom home schools them all. They come over for a week or two and go back as necessary....sometimes they leave the boat here and fly home. Can you imagine? What a life!
Lobster, polenta cakes and string beans for dinner. YUM!!!!
