18 March 2019 | Shroud Cay, Exumas
We were on the go by 0800 as we had about thirty miles to get to Shroud Cay. It was our hope to get there and enjoy the day in the mangroves watching the turtles and fish play in the more shallow waters. When we pulled into the anchorage, it looked as though it had been overtaken by the invasion of the mega yachts. We have never seen yachts here at Shroud and it did not take long for the jet skis to welcome us.
We decide to visit the mangroves on a rising tide as it is pretty shallow closer to the ocean. We remember loads of turtles and fish in this mangrove but were disappointed as we saw none on our way to the beach. We were a half hour or better too early getting there as we had to walk the dinghy in because the tide was still not quite high enough.
Once on the beach Jaxon goes for a little run while Robin and I hunt for sea beans and sea glass. Greg and Barry walk and discuss weather and anchoring while we enjoy this gorgeous beach all to ourselves. Barry is doing his part to clean up some of the things that have floated to shore from boats. It did not take long for Robin to find her first heart bean in the Bahamas. YAY!!!! Unfortunately that was the only one found but it was a great specimen.
We head back through the mangroves and catch sight of a turtle on our way out. I tried to catch him on the GoPro but of course I messed that up because I don’t use it often enough and hit the wrong button. Oh well we left there and went through more cuts and found a few other things to watch.
We arrived back at the boats about 1700 and decide to call it a evening as we prepare to head to Waderwick Wells for the upcoming weather. We will have to see if we can get in there or head to another anchorage as a safe haven.
