Sampson Cay - our home away from home

Here are a few friends we've met along our journey.  They've welcomed us with open arms and made us feel at home.  Others will be posted soon at this same link.

She always wants to be like me

Tuesday, we bid Beth, Wayne and MacLaine a sad goodbye as they climbed into an even smaller plane than the one in which they arrived.  We had a wonderful visit with only a single detour.  We all know and love Alyson, but a few of you may not know she secretly wants to be me!  By that I mean, she now, is at the top of the injury highlight reel followed closely by Caroline.  At Rachels Bubble bath Alyson severly cut her ankle and Caroline got bruises and scrapes as they both were knocked from the rocks by the crash of a mighty wave.  Both are OK but Alyson had to get 4 stitches.  We were extremely lucky to have EMTs on the boat beside and the boat behind us.  And, a few hours later a General Surgeon was stitching her up while all in the marina looked on.  She is still sore but is recovering nicely.
Pictures of our visit with the Birches and the Surgery in the cockpit are now posted at:

Beth, Wayne and MacLaine Arrive In The Islands, Mon!

Beth, Wayne and MacLaine finally get to Staniel Cay. They flew in on Flamingo Air with Wayne sitting up front with the pilot! We hurried from the airport to snorkel Thunderball Grotto. After a good snorkel, we headed back to our home away from home at Sampson Cay. On Wayne's first sunset, he sees a Green Flash! What a day!

Today, we had some leisure time on the beach, some kayak time in the lagoon and some reading time/catnap on the boat. Pretty good for a Friday the 13th!

Here are some pictures from our adventures thus far.

Went exploring today

Today we took the dingy over to Little Pipe Cay to look for some conch and do some shelling. Little Pipe Cay is a private island between Sampson Cay to the south and Compass Cay to the north. There are lots of scenic views and pretty blue water all around.

We came back for lunch on the boat and will soon get ready to go to happy hour and dinner at Sampson Cay Club for Wendy and Delaney's last dinner in the islands.

We are currently anchored at: 24°12.466'N 076°28.547'W.

Also, check the previous post to view additional photos. I've uploaded to the same link a couple of times.

Wendy and Delaney Have Arrived!!!

Our first guests are finally here! Wendy and Delaney Mitchell from Wrightsville Beach flew into Staniel Cay on Saturday. We spent the first night at Big Majors Spot and moved to Sampson Cay the next day. From there, we've travelled north to Compass Cay and further north to Waderick Wells where we are now. We are having an awesome time! The weather could be a little warmer but it is nothing like the weather they came from in WB.

Here are the Pics!
