Bahamas Warderick Wells 31 March 2010

The Front arrived Monday evening as forecast with some thunder and lightening and the wind veered from south through west to northwest reaching at least 27 knots - we were very happy to be here safely moored in this beautiful well protected spot.

Had some great hikes over warderick Wells mainy well marked trails. The trails are very varied in character, meandering through the vegetation to scrambling along heavily pitted ancient reefs to strolling along white coral beaches.

The limestone has many holes , some quite deep and wide. Stromalite reefs are growing in the waters around the island - one of the few places in the world where this is happening.

One of the most common sights is the curled tail lizard.

Darcy, the very friendly but very efficient volunteer who controls the morning 0900hrs VHF 09 net for allocating moorings
for boats.

Today 31 March, we plan to move further north to anchor behind another Cay ready for the sail back to Nassau on Thursday.
