After dropping anchor at Black Point the boys shuttled the girls back to Staniel Cay while Dan and I lowered the dink and scooted over to the island. The poor dingy hasn’t been used since bringing on the tender and it was happy to be in the blue Bahamian waters.
At the settlement at Black Point we were lucky enough to snag some piping hot coconut bread from Lorraine’s mother. It is sooooo good! Dan and Andrew both got haircuts at the Rockside Laundromat. Yep, you heard right. The proprietress just pulls a plastic chair outside, gathers her barbering utensils and clips your hair while you gaze at the boats bobbing in the bay. Not a bad setting for a clip-joint!
After our Black Point errands we moved on to the southern part of Great Guana Cay just off of Little Farmers Cay and dropped anchor for the night. From here we went ashore and hiked up hill to the hidden cave with its little pond. While shelling on the shore the Osprey family nesting atop the rocky point kept an eye on us and their plaintive cry would echo out whenever they felt our presence was too close.

Watching the sunset while tendering back to Quest, we were sure that the clear skies would bring the “Green Flash”. Again, not the case but the skies were kept a mango red for ages. Just another shitty day in paradise!
