Great Guana to Treasure Cay - 2017
|This is the beach at Treasure Cay on the Sea of |
Abaco--it is absolutely stunning!
|The 4-mile long beach is almost completely devoid of people.|
|Just a simple piece of colored rope that |
washed up onto the beach.
|These are colorful condos that are on the marina complex. |
Each different color building, though they look like
townhouses, have four apartment units.
|This is the sign for the ladies showers at the marina. The name |
of the outdoor bar at the marina is the Tipsy Seagull.
We had intended to wake up and walk on the beach at sunrise but somehow that didn't happen this morning, Thursday, April 27. I did take some photographs around the marina at sunrise--here are a couple:

|Morning reflections of palm trees in the marina's pool.|
|Our view from our cockpit this morning includes the homes |
in the Treasure Cay Marina complex with their
slips behind their houses.
After lunch we got an umbrella on the beach and Maggie tried paddle boarding.
|Maggie pulls the paddle board out into the |
turquoise water of the Sea of Abaco.
|She starts out by kneeling on the paddle |
board to get the feel of it.
|Within a few minutes, she is standing on the paddle board. |
There was only one setback.
|I took this photograph of five empty beach chairs |
along the beach at Treasure Cay.
Our day ended with dinner at the marina--it was pizza night! I learned that the Thursday night "pizza nights" started way back in 1989--28 years ago.
Treasure Cay was originally known as Sand Bank Cays. The resort complex as we know it today was initially developed in the early 1960's (when the Bahamas were still owned by England) and development continued through Bahamian independence in July 1973 and into the present time. The "Tipsy Seagull" bar where we had lunch today was built in 1982. More information on the history of Treasure Cay can be found at "A Brief History of Treasure Cay."
We will be most likely be staying here a couple more days. Stay tuned for more of our craziness...
