What a Difference a Day Makes ...
25 February 2017 | Double-Breasted Cay to Thompson's Bay, Long Island

With the wind gone, we left at dawn, out through the cut past Johnson Cay into the deep blue water of Exuma Sound. We skirted the Jumentos for 40 miles, all the way up to Little Water Cay. Then we motored across the banks to the shallow 12-mile long Comer Channel. It's only six feet at low water (we draw 5.5), but not a problem on a rising tide. We dropped the anchor after dark in Thompson's Bay, Long Island, exactly a month to the day since we left from here.
