Exploring Cambridge Cay
20 March 2019 | Cambridge Cay
Robin had informed me that I could work off my food coma at the 0930 talk and walk on the beach which was being led by our host boat SeaLark. Bill on SeaLark is quite the historian regarding the Bahamas and seems he has been coming here since I think he said 1975. He has acquired a great deal of knowledge about the Bahamas....their native plants, the fowl in the area and really a great understanding of how these islands and Cays were formed. We enjoyed that talk and walk but I shed no pounds as there was no cardio workout associated with the "walk".
Once back at Ti Amo we grabbed a little brunch and then headed over to Crossroads where we agreed to meet and head for snorkeling destinations. Our first stop was an airplane which was pretty cool but a little scary as I could see through the door on the side and my mind started racing about people escaping in the crash. We headed to the next snorkeling spot to find "the aquarium". WOW!!! When you get in the water you are surrounded by tons of fish you would find in any aquarium. It was truly an amazing site to see. Robin and I hung together and were pointed out all the different fish we would see. It was like standing at fish department at the local pet shop deciding which to take home. Loads of fun.
We scoot by Ti Amo and pick up the Commander and Chief. Yes Jaxon has bypassed the captain and the admiral in terms of rank on the boat as he truly runs the show. We head to the beach where he finds two labradoodles to play with..Dude and Bro. Okay.....after the ten minute shock of who is bigger in size, Jaxon proves he is not afraid of them. He gives them a run for their money and I am thinking he is going to sleep soundly tonight.. Robin and I spent time looking at conch shells on the flats and discovering some actually had critters inside them.
Once we had worn out our welcome on the beach, we headed back to Ti Amo for a rum punch and conversation about the weather and our plans for the next couple of days. A great way to end the day.........except.....
After dinner and television, Greg saw Eagle (the catamaran behind us) was out having trouble with their mooring ball. He radioed and they asked for help as the mooring ball pendent was wedged somehow around their lower unit. It took Bill from SeaLark and Greg and the boat owners to a little after midnight to free the boat. It was a long night but it all turned out well.
