Passage Green Turtle Club - Allan’s-Pensacola Cay Anchorage
25 NM 5.9 Engine Hours
11:35 AM Underway
4:15 PM Anchored Allan’s-Pensacola Cay 26º59.27’N 77º41.09’W

After our friend, Carter, left to fly home we decided to either go to Spanish Cay or Allans-Pensacola Cay. We opted to anchor out at Allans-Pensacola. I had read about the funny signing trees over on the Atlantic side and wanted to see them for myself. Allans-Pensacola is a nice anchorage and we only had 3 other boats in the anchorage.

It is later in the day and so, we quickly launched the dinghy and headed out for the Walmart sign someone had placed to mark the dinghy spot. Pictures and videos of the Allans-Pensacola Hilton were taken. It cracks me up how much energy people will put at being funny. The path was jungle like with mangrove, small trees and palms. Some looked like poison wood that is very much like poison ivy if you touch them. The trail was not marked with blaze colors like in our national forests, but rather odd things people have left to keep you on the trail. Shoes, floats, flip flops, high heel shoes marked the path. Susan & I chuckled at every turn. But after walking quite some distance we couldn’t seem to get closer to the ocean. We could hear the surf, But we got concerned we might lose our way, get dark and be stuck in the jungle. So, we retreated a little disheartened that we hadn’t made it to the signing trees.

We had a nice dingy ride back to the boat. I cooked steaks on the grill. It was the first time I’d used the grill our entire trip. I had vowed to get rid of it as it is so seldom used. But the seats were good and I guess i’ll keep it.

We are headed to Rosie’s at Grand Cays today. It’s about a 40 mile run and it’s windier than forecasted. So, we will be getting underway soon.

Today’s picture is the spectacular sunset we had.
