You say To-may-toe I say To-mah-toe

Well here we are in the Cays or Keys (depending who you're talking to) called the Exuma Island chain. Ohh-La-la. Crystal clear turquoise water and islands that stretch to the end of the horizon. Everyone gets their own island/beach. Lots of boats, both power and sail but sail being the most popular. The wind rarely takes a break.
Getting here from Nassau was "interesting". I like to take my time motivating it in the morning and we should have left a bit sooner. Winds were strong in a not so optimum direction so we once again played "Beat The Clock" to arrive just at dark on the wrong side of the reef.
Thankfully it was calm by nightfall and we just sat out in the middle water away from the anchorage until daylight until we could see our way closer to shore.
All the Islands look pretty much the same and I never get tired of looking at the scenery. Today's entertainment is a nosey needle fish who is skulking around the boat taking advantage of the shade and the huge school of unsuspecting green neon glass fish (otherwise known as HIS LUNCH).
I watched the game being played for hours and the needle fish "win" his prize. We poked around the reef and the beaches exploring for live critters and shells or beach glass, anything interesting to examine. Just on the other side of these islands is the deep blue water if you want to make a long fast run down several islands. I prefer to canvass them one at a time.
So many islands so little time!
WiFi remains mostly elusive (and should be that way in this unspoiled territory). Thinking of you all and hope all is well.
