2014-01-25 Staniel Cay, Black Point, Little Farmers Cay

After spend a wonderful few days at Warderick Wells we were eager to make it to Georgetown but made not before making a couple of stops. While Mandalay stopped for some additional snorkeling Magnolia and Eleanor Q stopped in Staniel Cay.

After a brief visit to town the main attraction was the swimming pigs. Yup, swimming pigs! It was a little overcast and the air cool so I am not thinking this guy was that enthusiastic.

When his blond buddy showed up he was thinking I am off the swimming gig today. Then there must have been a toss of the coin and….

brown piggy lost the toss. So….

Out next stop was Black Point where our arrival coincided with the Church Fund Raiser Barbeque. One my favorite things over the years and many visit to the Bahamas was to find the Barbeque…they are always going on and some of the best food served in the islands!

Somehow these two are always color coordinated!

As we were departing Black Point Mandala passed heading out the cut at Black Point. They wanted to do some fishing on the way to Farmers Cay.

We all met up a few miles down the Exuma island chain at Little Farmer’s Cay. We spent a couple days here and I REALLY liked the vibe here. I am truthfully not sure why but it just felt comfortable and we had a couple of really good local meals during our visit.

While we were relaxing the Seamless Sailor was preparing and article I think on Lee-Cloths. When underway at sea we can make the setees up as beds and the Lee-Cloths hold you in place and provide a more restful sleep.

  1. Great liberty Pals, looks like a lot of fun and certainly much warmer than the East coast right now.

    I really like the pigs, can you one? and pinch its little nose.
