We left Nassau and headed to the Exumas on the 22nd and went to Allen's Cay, known for its population of iguanas. The anchorage was a bit windy and rolly, but our anchor bit in solid to the sand and we could sleep well, knowing we wouldn't drag. The next day, we took the dinghy over to Leaf Island, walking the perimeter and visiting with the iguanas. They have a lovely pink color to their heads and seem quite friendly, but are known to bite, so we gave them lots of space.
The wind died down a bit yesterday, so we moved south to Highbourne Cay, home to a fancy marina and resort. We anchored off the west side of the island and dinghied in to explore. Lots of fancy BIG boats and well maintained buildings. They had some "island bikes" in a rack with the sign "Use at your own risk." They helped us ride the one road through the island and see the beach at the north end.
Today we plan to move down to Norman's Cay - an island owned by a drug lord who is currently in jail in the States. Then we'll be looking for a sheltered spot to wait out the next front coming through the area early next week. I'm getting good at picking up the weather report on our single side band radio receiver every morning at 6:30. I can sit out on the back deck in my nightshirt with a cup of coffee and listen in. Great to get good weather predictions.
