Another day to explore
21 March 2019 | Cambridge Cay
After a late night, we slept in until about 0800 and then were pretty lazy about moving. Some boats were leaving the mooring field which left several mooring balls available so our first order of business was to pull up anchor and head to a ball somewhere close to Crossroads. The mega yacht that was in front of us had been feeding the sharks, which is a no-no in the park but also a concern for me with Jaxon. He likes to go to the bow sprit and hang out in the mornings and having sharks right below him makes me nervous.
After a nice leisurely breakfast, we got moving doing a few chores around the boat.....changing filters, checking fuel levels and other fluid levels as well as trying to stay on top of our salty exterior by wiping down the cockpit. Salt and the fine sand are both major problems aboard any vessel and you have to remember to wash your feet and shoes off before getting on the boat. Jaxon is more of the source for our sand downstairs as rinsing him off is not always good enough. His coat hides the sand and salt and later becomes an irritant to him. He gets a bath just about every day when he is playing in the water or the sand. But.....he seems to like bath time so that is a plus.
We are meeting Crossroads on the beach at 1300 and taking a look for sea beans. The ocean side is raging with waves as we meander down the sand. The search for sea beans does not look promising but we have seen some sea glass which we pick through as we chat about the day.
Greg heads back to Ti Amo as I head over to Crossroads to discuss some anchoring and navagational items with Robin and Barry regarding their trip to Georgetown.. We will probably depart company this coming weekend and we want to make sure they knew where in Georgetown you want to be in “weather” situations.
Another day draws to a close and we will pull up anchor and head to Pipe Creek / Thomas Cay anchorage for a night and enjoy a little dinghy tour of the flats and the old abandoned DECCA station there.
