Manjack Cay, Bahamas May 2009

Date: 01 May 2009

I haven’t kept track of the days. So here is generally what we have been up to.

After we spent our time at Spanish Cay, we went to Manjack Cay.

This is defienetly the Cay that our family has so far enjoyed the most. There are several awesome beaches on this Cay. It is a privately owned island, but the owners are gracious enough to allow boaters access. There are two lovely beaches right next to the anchorage. One of these beaches offered cruisers chairs and hammocks. The anchorage is great as it is protected from all wind directions except for the West.

On one of the beaches next to the anchorage we went ashore and spent time with our fellow cruisers. This was a new experience for me. It was interesting listening to other people talking about cruising the Bahamas.

There are two nice trails on the island to two different beaches. As we walked along one of the trails we noticed hand made wooden faces posted to trees. It was fun looking for the next face to greet us.

This beach had both lovely white sand and a rocky outcropping. The rocky outcropping reminded Philip of cruising in British Columbia. The next beach was a great place for the kids to go for a swim. The bottom was sandy and the water got up to their chest. On our way North we plan on going here again. Boaters are able to pick up internet in one area of the anchorage. Last time there were too many boats in this area. If we can we will email from here in the future.

To be continued…
