West Side Ride
Right now we are heading due west on the back side of the island – going slow as we hit a shallow patch – destination a remote beach somewhere.
Rescue 911 a couple of guys with engine trouble flagged us down for help – we are towing them to a pink house – pit stop tied boats side by side so Dick could straighten their engine so towing would be easier.
After towing them a bit further Dick decided he could do a temporary fix and get their engine running – we saw them off safely to their destination – heading north looking for a good stretch of sand.
Stopped at a white sand beach and did some exploring – Carole got stuck in the mud and we could not stop laughing.
Off we go towards a small island with a massive sand bar around it – we pulled boat up to sandbar and went for a nice walk in the shallow water – this is paradise at it’s finest.
Traveling north east now – still following sand bar which must be about 3 miles long – just figured out we are about 7 miles north.
As we go east through a channel we can see a landmark red and white telecommunications tower from the other side of the island – lots of fish – water is getting to shallow time to turn around.
Southward bound – wind at our back ride is much smoother – close to Cayo Espanto Dick decided we should drop anchor and go for a swim.
Back to town – getting dropped off at sunset grill how easy.
Off to Dick and Carole’s for pot luck bbq – got cheese cake from New York today courtesy of Big Mike – we are bringing a couple of slices and some sausages.
