We left on a rising tide to go out the south entrance to Cambridge Cay. We would motor the entire way as the wind and the water were all pretty flat and calm. We rode by Jerry Jone’s mega yacht BRAVO EUGENIA which according to sources cost him $250 million dollars and spans 357 feet. It is impressive complete with slides to enjoy a quick zip into the water.

We approached the entrance and came upon the skinny shallow areas expecting to have issues and we had none. Crossroads came through unscathed as well. We were off to our anchoring hole between Thomas and Rat Cay. There is a strong current running through here so we are careful to make sure we are holding.

With a quick call to Crossroads we agree to a quick lunch and then off to the DECCA Station, Bubble Bath and sand flats. We are eager to get on the “road” and set out about 1215. The first stop is the old DECCA Station where we find a nice sized trawler tied to the concrete wall which use to be used to tie the large ships to when they came in. The ruins that are there are getting overtaken by growth of greenery but we get to explore a little of it.

Next we head to the Bubble Bath where there are several boats anchored...most were leaving and one other arriving with us. We walked thru the tidal stream to get to the pool itself and as we approach we see and hear the large waves breaking to provide the “bath”. Robin and I get in for a minute or two of fun before we head out to explore other areas. The shallows were coming in as we could see more sandy flats rising out of the water. We elect to go through Compass Cay Marina where we find Crossroads friend, Flip Flop. They are a Hatteras Motoryacht that has a dog named Scout. Scout thinks he is the same size as Jaxon but in reality he is a labradoodle and is quite large but just so friendly. We enjoyed meeting and hearing of their upcoming plans.

We turn back to the anchorage and motor our way through the flats looking for the deeper water so we can make it home without having to walk our dinghys back. Safely back Robin and I head to the flats near us just to see if we can find anything of interest lying of the sea floor. After battling the tidal current and the rising tide, we head home for cocktails aboard Crossroads. A great evening sitting up in the flying bridge watching the water, the sunset and the boats passing through as they go to their homes.

Another day is done!
