We left Nassau in late January after transferring the orphanage supplies to the mail boat. Most of the islands get a mail/freight boat in once a week. Islanders fax their grocery lists to stores in Nassau who pack it up and deliver to the appropriate boat for shipment. We spent several days in Allens Cay which is an Iguana habitate island. Scooter could not go ashore even. It has been nice to go back to some of the anchorages we were in last season. This year we spent a lot of time in Farmers Cay and attended the All Age School Fair one Saturday. We met new friends, Vicki & Ed on sv "BOTO". Vicki and I spent one day getting conch and fishing the reefs. Even found a local who cleaned them for us. We went on to George Town for some of the 51st annual Boaters Regatta-harbor boat racing, softball playoff between islander team (some were pros) and boater team, Texas Holdem, cookouts and Beach Church on Sunday. We went on to Long Island then Rum Cay. It is inhabited with a nice marina; some construction going on but mostly fishing for income. We are now heading back north toward Nassau. This week we are in Wardwick Wells Exuma Sea Park waiting out weather with high winds; wait I thought we liked wind.
