Bimini and Beyond part 2

We then fuelled up and set off for Allen Cay (pronounced key) along with about a dozen other boats. An easy 32 mile trek.

we had some good looking company

Once inside the cut, the anchorage was beautiful. Not very big, but plenty of room for about 20 boats. Totally calm and crystal clear. We couldn’t wait to get in the water. The best part was the swim off the boat. There’s nothing like a salt water shampoo with a fresh water rinse.
this is 10 feet deep
it looks like the bottom of a pool


Allen Cay is uninhabited except for it’s iguanas which were waiting on the beach for us. Although they do like handouts from tourists I really didn’t want to get too close. They were probably about 50 of them and the bigger ones were over 3 feet long.

Dinner of sushi, homemade soup & homemade bread (yum!) on Majiks with Kathy & Dan. After dinner Dan brought out his guitar. As well as a great voice, he can really play. I could have listened all night. Then back to the boat and an early bed time. Who am I kidding, it’s always an early bed time. Some nights (OK, most nights) I’m lucky to make 9pm.

About Us

Brian, Sally and Cricket the cat sailing on our 41 foot Morgan Classic sailboat. In October 2011 we sold our house, quit our jobs and set out for Florida in search of a sailboat. We found her in Madeira Beach Florida. A 1987 41 foot Morgan Classic. Our plan is to sail for a couple of years. First to the Bahamas, after that...who knows.
