Little Farmers Cay
03 April 2009 | Little Farmers Cay, Exuma Cays, Bahamas
We were planning to do a street meeting with the local pastor on Staniel Cay, but felt we should leave and go further south. We sailed here to Little Farmers Cay and were ashore about five-minutes, when we met a Bahamian who'd been living in the USA and had returned as a missionary a couple days before. She helped us setup and preach the Gospel of jesus Christ in the open air three times on the island. We spent time getting to know people & talk with them. We didn't want to leave; easy to get attached to the people on this island..the island is full of problems, but the people pretty lovable.
We anchored the far side of the harbour, actually right off the shore of another island. In between, is a large sand bank...beautiful while sand. At low-tide, it's waist deep or less, warm..crystal clear. The sun shines right through it...like the world's largest swimming pool. We went out there for family baths. Apparently not necessarily the best place to swim on a high and rising tide, as the high-tide currents bring in larger, predator types from the deep sea nearby.
If you've a chance to visit this quiet, almost sleepy place, take it. I don't know if there are any accommodations ashore, but a very cool place to visit by boat.
