Heading across the Exuma Sound, my fishing attempts yielded a few nibbles, but sadly, no sushi for dinner.
First stop is Cambridge Cay inside the Land & Sea Park. We pick up a mooring ball and enjoy the sunset from this beautiful location.
Friend boat SV Tao Pao, who we first met in Rock Sound, had never been to Rachel’s Bath, so we had a fun outing with them. Rachel’s Bath is a natural jacuzzi and one of my favorite places in the Bahamas.
Here are some additional reasons why this we love this place so much:
After a quick stop at Black Point, where we met up with the Donnolly’s on SV Serenity, the catamaran, and enjoyed happy hour at Scorpio’s with new friends, MV Darwin, we were all ready to move on to Georgetown. First, I needed to do some laundry at the priettiest laundromat in the Bahamas:
Leaving Black Point, we later anchored off of Cave Cay. Mahi crew had a happy hour ashore meeting the three other cruising boats in this anchorage. They talked about heading the next morning over to Rudder Cut Cay at high tide. We were not sure that our boat draft would allow this, but since we shared the same draft as one of the boats, we decided to follow along.
We were sure glad we changed our plans at the last minute as Rudder Cut Cay became one of our favorite places in the Exuma chain. There are caves to check out, trails to hike, and it is but a short dinghy ride to visit David Copperfield’s underwater Mermaid on a piano sculpture.
