Man-O-War Cay - 2017
Mar 24 Thru Mar 26
|We doubled our lines to the big pink mooring ball last |
night--it allowed us to sleep much better.
|Our Bahamas courtesy flag is becoming tattered from all the |
high winds. Of course, our flag halyard is a bit
too loose, making a whipping noise.
|Note the rust in various spots around the stainless steel |
wear plate for our anchor chain. I think it
is because of the increased salt
content of the sea water.
|Leonard was not shy about making himself comfortable |
on my lap and on my foul weather jacket.
|This is Maggie's coconut whole wheat bread--it |
tasted as good as it looks!
|As you can see in this photograph, the moorings are packed|
into this little harbor with just enough room to swing.
There are several different owners for the moorings
--the pink ones are owned by David Albury
whose business name is Hilltop.
|About 100 people attended the annual luau at Man-O-War Cay.|
|Pork shoulders were roasted in a pit |
constructed from concrete blocks.
|Maggie loves beads and necklaces. She |
couldn't resist a colorful lei at the luau.
|I'm quite sure that this was this young girl's first luau.|
|It's always nice to find our boat on the big pink mooring|
buoy where we left it earlier in the day!
|We anchored in Fanny Bay on the north end of Man-O-War |
Cay. The little bit of land off our bow provided just
enough protection from the wind.
|This was our view looking north from our |
anchorage in Fanny Bay.
|The ketch came sailing into the cove where we were |
anchored. This is the same boat we saw in
Marsh Harbour--she is from Malaysia.
|This skipper of this boat really knew what he was doing--|
you could tell by the way he maneuvered the
big boat under sail in close quarters.
|This was the sunset from our anchorage in Fanny Bay.|
Tomorrow we head to Little Harbour, 22 miles south of Man-O-War Cay. Stay tuned for more of our adventures...
