We took a dinghy ride south this morning to check out more of the Pipe Creek area. We were going over a sand bar and eventually George had to raise the outboard up a notch. Then he had to get out and pull the dinghy. Then I had to get out and we both pulled the dinghy. Eventually we got back to deeper water and we continued our ride. The water is clear and many gorgeous shades of blue, depending on the depth.
After lunch we got back in the dinghy and took a ride through the mangroves at Compass Cay. The creek started out very wide and became narrow as we neared the top of the cay. By the time we decided to turn back we didn’t have enough room to turn the dinghy around. George had to get out to muscle the dinghy around.
The first photo is from the Explorer Chartbook, I put a red arrow in to show where we are located. The last photo was taken in the mangroves.
