Exploring the Mangroves

03 January 2020 | Great Harbour Cay Anchorage, Bahamas

Having a better understanding (or so we thought) of the tide, we wanted to go through the mangroves on a rising tide and close to high as it could be shallow. No....lets correct that.....it was shallow. We were cutting grass and churning a bit of sand right at the mouth of the mangrove. We were concerned about our outboard but also concerned about the natural habitat foe the turtle, fish and sharks we were seeing. We pulled up the engine and used our oars to get through these areas. This mangrove would lead us to the ocean side of the cay. We were not disappointed.

There were small baby nurse sharks and tons of turtles as we went along. The size of them were amazing. The turtles were huge! The baby nurse sharks are still “sharks” but they seemed less threatening at this size.

We came through the mangrove to find the electric blue water that we love so much and another beach for Jaxon to enjoy stretching his legs. We had all packed lunches or snacks and chose to enjoy them here on the beach before having to think about turning back as we still needed to get back at the high tide.

We exited the mangroves and headed to a plane wreck that was off the northern part of the cay. Paul and John took their spears in search of lobster in the remains or any fish that was in season. Sure enough Paul is up quickly with a snapper. Looks like someone will have dinner or maybe even better.....we might all get to enjoy some of Laurie’s famous smoked fish dip.

With that thought the appy hour was called and we would all gather on No Limits. Prior to our departure we would have the local fisherman pay us a visit......perfect timing. We had thawed a steak for dinner and what goes nicely with it????? You got it. We bought some lobster from the fishermen and froze all but one tail which we would split with the steak.

So off to No Limits where we enjoyed fish dip, cheeses, sausages, salsa, chips, crackers, libations, and tall tales! One thing is for certain....you will always get the good stories at these appy hours.

No Limits is a 49 Beneteau out of Annapolis, Maryland. Actually they live aboard and stay at Herrington Harbor South when not cruising the Bahamas. A lovely boat with a nice large cockpit area and downstairs would be equally gorgeous and spacious with three staterooms, two heads, two settees, and a nicely equipped kitchen. A nice end to the day!

Back to Ti Amo where the lobster and steak dinner await! It did not disappoint. On to dishes and another day is done.
