After leaving Manjack Cay TARDIS needed to go offshore. The 'Whale' is where you go offshore into the Atlantic Ocean by going around Whale Cay. You transit two cuts, Whale Cay Channel and Loggerhead Channel. These cuts in the island chain may contain "rage" seas that are very dangerous. When TARDIS went through the winds were mild and the swells were ONLY about 5'. This is good for the Whale but it still made Charlie nervous. Eileen was as calm as a cucumber. Sorry no photos were taken.
TARDIS spent two nights anchored off the shores of Great Guana Cay. The first night, Superbowl Sunday, was spent at Bakers Bay. Bakers Bay is just south of the Whale Cay Channel. The area ashore is private and includes homes for the rich and famous. The harbor is big but we're not allowed to go ashore.
This we think is a GUN BOAT, carbon fiber foiling cat.
We were able to listen to the Super Bowl on our phone through the Tune In Radio app. It was much more exciting for us since we didn't have to watch the half time show and the Westwood One radio announcers were actually fun to listen to. About two days later we learned we were anchored in front of Tom Brady's Abaco home. Eileen found this interesting article on facebook. Cheater?!

Since we could not go to shore we moved a couple miles down the coast and anchored in Fishers Bay. This was a much better place to be and we could go to shore here to explore.
The tide was out when we docked 'Space Patrol'
After we got to shore, the first thing we saw was this!
There is a short trail to the beach on the Atlantic side of the island to a bar called Nippers. Artwork on the trail.
Another unbelievable beach from the deck at Nippers. Beers are $10 here so we passed and headed to the other beach bar near our anchorage.
This is Grabbers where beers are only $7.50! One order of Fish Fingers and two beers = $68 including VAT tax but not tip. Time to get off this island!
And SAIL to Man-O-War
