The Search For Bright Waters

White Point and Black Point

We left Leaf Cay and had to beat against the crushing waves one more time.  After about 20 minutes of huge waves kicking our butts in the channel we were out far enough to sail north.  At that point we decided we would NOT enter the ocean on rough days any more!

We pulled into Little Farmers Cay.  We explored the tiny island which consist of two restaurants and a grocery.  The grocery was bare though and said the mail boat hadn't come in 3 weeks. 

We ate at Little Farmers Cay Yacht Club and left shortly the next day.

O and we saw a small turtle swimming on the sand under our boat, and then we saw a really big, 2 or 3 feet, turtle swimming near by.  It was cool!

We took advantage of the south winds and sailed easily on the calm side of the cays up to White Point Beach

There was an easy hill to climb that provided a great view of the idyllic beach

We relaxed at the beach, swam and even did some beach running.

Next stop was the more bustling Black Point

They had a library here for us to get new books as well as several local book exchanges.

We spent most of our time at Lorains Cafe which had tv, internet, electricity, and cheap local cuisine.

There were signs to this "crusier must see" Garden of Eden.  We went but it was just a bunch of drift wood and plants and looked like a garden graveyard.

We did however find a blow hole!

Woooo fun!!!!
