Cambridge Cay to Staniel Cay

Yesterday we went back to the Sea Aquarium for more snorkeling. Much to my surprise it was even better than the day before!  There were so many fish of so many varieties. I saw some of my favorite, Queen Angelfish, and also some relatively small needle-nose fish that had snouts that seemed as thin as actual needles. 
After returning to Breeze On, Pam and Brad jumped in to take a salt water bath. Just after they got out of the water, and before they had a chance to rinse off, they spotted a 6 foot shark swimming right by the swim platform!  Yikes!  It looked like a nurse shark, but even so...  I am so glad it waited until after they got out of the water. A large ray swam by shortly after the shark. George opted to take a very quick salt water bath but I showered inside. 
This morning we sailed down to Staniel Cay. After anchoring at Big Majors we took a very wet dinghy ride over to Staniel Cay Yacht Club where Pam and Brad treated us to lunch. From there we walked to the airport just to see where it is and and time how long it takes to walk there (15 minutes).  On the way back to the dinghy we stopped at both the Pink Store and the Blue Store to shop for fresh food. The shelves were bare so we will try again later. Since the dinghy ride to Staniel was so wet and we are expecting more wind on the day of their departure we are making plans to get them ashore without getting wet. Plan A is to use the fuel dock at Staniel Cay Yacht Club.
