Treasure Cay was seductive. We were a little reluctant to leave, but the weather sounded better today than the next few days. We left at noon on the high tide. Before leaving we fueled up. The price of diesel here today is the same as we last paid in Marathon. Not bad.
It was a light wind day so we did most of it motoring. To get 8 miles to Manjack Cay, we had to go in a big circle traveling almost 25 miles. The reason is a big shoal that we had to avoid. We also went through The Whale. It was no problem today. Very mild. That's good because the other day when the condition of the Whale was reported as "medium" a sailboat got dismasted attempting it.
Our plan is to spend several days here. The weather should be mild, permitting us lots of opportunity to swim, snorkel, fish, hike and hunt for conchs. After that, we'll backtrack to Green Turtle Cay for some more days.
It is too early to return to Florida and head north. We would run the risk of sailing into COLD, if we did that.
