Boy, the wind came up a howling like the dickens last night but we were secure and sound in our protected mooring and slept peacefully. Any cruisers looking for an escape from the wind, this mooring field will fill that need.
We let go the mooring ball and headed for our beloved Compass Cay where we were greeted with a warm “Welcome home”. I just don’t know how to explain the magical place but Steven has been smitten and gets it already.
After securing the Quest we jumped into the tender (con-Quest) and headed back north to the “Aquarium” snorkeling grounds where we all dove in. We saw tons of Sergeant Majors, an amazing Lion Fish, Grouper, Tang, Triggerfish, and the boys even found an eel and a sea turtle. This is the best spot to snorkel and located a dink distance from the Cambridge Mooring field. Make note Garth and Kathy!
Back on land we toasted the setting sun (no Green-flash) and made plans to watch the sun rise tomorrow morning from the Sound side of the island. Hmmmm, we’ll see.
Breaking news!!!!! Quest has now utilized its water-maker and made desalinized water! Thought I’d never see the day. It was a bit of a learning experience for Dan and Steven and I heard shouts of pleasure as well as disgruntled curses as they tackled the job of refilling our tanks.
