Swimming through the sea of Abaco, Adonai and Knauers Pa. Boy Scout Troop 241

17 July 2015
Why float through life when you can swim!
What an adventurous week sailing through the Abaco's with troop 241 Knauers Pa. We met a ferocious current on Sandy Cay giving the scouts respect and a work out on our first day. The ocean and power it contains is forever changing. Coming across Grieg Cay population of 6 in the past, today is looks like zero except for the 6,000 plus hermit crabs, this Cay is found to be conch heaven also a super water polo setting with waves and soft white sand filling the players with excitement and pure fun!
Raising the sails brings Adonai to Elbow Cay where Hope Town Lighthouse is standing tall for over 150 years with its original fresnel lens floating on a bed of mercury. The light house is one of three operational kerosene -fueled manual light houses in the world. It is hand cranked every several hours. After the 121 steps to climb the light house the scouts enjoy cooling off in town with ice-cream this is an all time favorite before hopping back into dingy to head motor back to Adonai.
This week onboard our fishing tournament is in full swing with barracuda being the prized catch, once again loved by the scouts. It is gill to gill competition and may the best scout win! Taking the lead with a full set of razor sharp teeth staring you down is measuring out at 40.5 " Mr. Barracuda.
Next stop is North Guana beach with her beautiful reef in full activity . Lady Gallant a 40 million dollar yacht anchored near by is adding to the scenery of sugar white sand pouring forth to clear water and colorful reef fully alive below. Again the water polo on the beach if fantastic while the adults are challenging the youth today. I will let you guess who came out on top.
By the time Adonai pulls in to port at Treasure Cay a fresh water shower and the thoughts of a fresh baked cinnamon buns is the most desired pleasure. Jumping off Adonai on to the dock in record tim becomes a jump in the pool, to a jump in the shower. The scouts find another gorgeous beach for water polo after killer cinnamon buns from Cafe Florence this is a grand start to any day of the week.
Equaling water polo is the barge wreck filled with fish and interesting wonder of the sunken items below also including geo caching at its best. We have 3 clues for the cache, ten feet down, starboard, and golf cart, and don't be fooled by the golf cart! This is a fun race for who can find it first.
Wednesday night approaches our last night out at sea the anchor is dropped at Water Cay for the best excitement of the week. On the beach live this week is all time famous Chelsea and the Sunshine Band, The Coconuts, The Pineapples and the Barracudas! Competition and creativity rise to a high level as each team out performs the next. It is our closing of the week ,a beach time of fun revealing team names, their call, and a skit pertaining to this weeks activities. Wood is collected from the island and a bon- fire is lit. The fire is blazing on the side of the sea along with the fire in our hearts of this weeks sailing times aboard Adonai on the Sea of Abaco.
The sun is set and we have a few more stops in the morning such as Fowl Cay, one of Abaco's spectacular marine preserves, this week with a sighting of 49 squid all lined up in order and size! Quaint and quiet Man O War Cay our last land stop is a shipbuilders settlement. Walking on Queens Highway down the island the scouts see this tucked away gem of the Bahamas a life so much different than there own. Until then we will see you back at the fuel dock.
The praise this week is, after an entire week of searching and a beautiful prayer by the scouts Chelsea saw her first beloved sea turtle here in Marsh Harbor ! Adonai, standing by 78!
