TOTAL MILES TRAVELED TODAY: 41 NM
The Wragas were reluctantly packed and ready for their journey back to Vermont. We dinked to the yacht club for a quick “so-long” breakfast before they caught their golf cart ride to the airport. We waved at the tiny plane as it departed for Florida via unknown islands. Their course always depends on who wants to fly to or from wherever.

After posting the blog for the past week, we made tracks back to Quest where we pulled up anchor and began our journey back to Fort Lauderdale. We saw our first dolphin in weeks just as we passed Compass Cay. He was not much interested in us but we were delighted to see him.
We ran the bank pretty hard until we reached the anchorage between Allen’s Cay and Leaf Cay. We crept in, dropped anchor, evaluated our position and then pulled up and moved a bit to our starboard before setting the anchor for the second time. Leaf Cay is known for its iguana population and, even though we opted not to join those gawking on the beach, we watched the huge reptiles lumber across the sand through our high-powered binoculars. It’s like stepping back in time and seeing miniature dinosaurs.
