Exploring Tilloo

07 April 2019 | Tavern Cay, Tilloo Cut, Abacos, Bahamas

We had a plan to follow Bright Ayes for a couple of days and then head back to Marsh Harbor to await the Clinefelter’s. Our second day we would pull up anchor and travel about a mile. We needed to wait for high tide as the cut to Tilloo is pretty shallow in places.

As we round Tilloo, we see 2 Outrageous just ahead of us at Tilloo and Bright Ayes dropped anchor near them. Paul and Laurie have friends at Lubber Quarters and have parked the boat here but spend their days ashore. We happened to drop anchor before they headed in and got to chat for a few moments. Of course there is the usual bantering about how close we are and “will you leave that anchor light on all night”.

Wayne and Betty drop their dinghy and head over as we make a plan for the afternoon. There is a castle turret at the end of an island or cay that has us intrigued as Paul said they had been over to see the place with their friends. The turret is just four bedrooms....nothing else. There is a main “house” which has the living room, dining area and kitchen, but no bedrooms. Another structure is just the master bedroom. And lastly there is another fully size house with three bedrooms, kitchen, dining and living rooms. Oh did I mention there is a sea plane hangar? Seems he has got it all!

We left there and headed to Cracker P’s for lunch. It is a happening place with the bar overlooking the water. We enjoyed and few burgers and “dawgs” with some peas and rice and salad. The burger was actually pretty good by my standards. At least it was “hand formed” and not a frozen manufactured patty.

After lunch we scooted up the island to the marina around the corner. We were in search of the artist 2 Outrageous had told us about. We found the “shack” but could not figure the way in as he had private sights all around and we did not want to interrupt. Before leaving the marina we went to find the house that the Tom and Sherry Heemeyer rented with us on Lubbers Quarters some fourteen years ago. As luck would have it, we found it and they have added electricity as last we saw it, it was a solar powered home.

Back to the boats we go with happy appy hour called at 1700 hours aboard Ti Amo. A little smoked salmon (thanks to Mil Kelly for the heads up on SeaBear) Boursin cheese, crackers and nuts and our day will come to a close.

We are off to watch what we can of the Final Four and then to bed.
