Camel Point - Delectable Bay

At Snug Corner we were anchored 1.5 miles offshore and never took our dinghy to land. During much of our stay there the winds held around 30 knots, journeying to shore in our dinghy would have been a fool's errand. Yesterday we jib sailed downwind from Snug Corner to the south side of Camel Point and drug our anchor around in the marl until we could get a hook. The winds had finally clocked east enough for the point to provide protection. We are in a much better position now relative to the shore; unfortunately the settlements are a few miles in either direction. Although reduced (and there is a BIG difference between 20 and 30 knots) it appears the 15 to 20 knot winds will stay with us for many days; therefore we will just have to figure something out about shore leave. The three vessels that were together south of Hog Cay off of Little Exuma (Hold Fast, Straight From the Heart and Dream Catcher) were re-united yesterday at this anchorage and we all welcomed a gathering on one boat to socialize.
All the tuna was eaten a couple of days ago, in style I might add. One day Maryann showed us how to make sushi nachos. It was very simple: chips with tuna on top and wasabi dripped all around. Since chips are hard to come by, Maryann made do with cutting wonton wrappers in half and frying them. Another night Myron and I caked the outside of some chunks of tuna with olive oil, chopped garlic and ginger and grilled it quickly enough to sear just the outside leaving it raw on the inside. Once off the grill, the tuna was sliced up, put on a bed of rice and finally drizzled with a mixture of wasabi and soy sauce. Another variation of this is to add feta cheese to the topping. We had it other ways, but those were our favorites. As I write this, I am longing for another tuna!
Love to all,
