Treasure Cay

Saturday in Treasure Cay was a day of relaxation and lounging around. After breakfast, we walked over to the gorgeous beach again. Cindy and I reclined in the sun and read while Tracy and Julie went in the water. They discovered that there was some sea grass and rocks on the southeast part of the beach with sea life. They were just about to go in with snorkels when they spotted a Caribbean Reef Shark about 15 feet from shore. They changed their minds.

No, I didn't paint my nails.  This is just the way the powdery sand adhered to my feet.

The wind blew hard all day long at 20-30 knots. We were expected a lot of rain, but only had a brief, moderately strong shower around four in the afternoon. With the cessation of the rain, the air cooled and the wind diminished. It was a pleasant evening in the Bahamas. The afternoon and evening were passed with lunch and dinner, game-playing (Jeopardy, golf, dominoes) and rum runners. The evening’s sunset was spectacular. The sky and its reflection in the water were a fiery scarlet.

What a sunset!

What a sunset!

Sunday was a drop-dead gorgeous, sunny Bahamian day. We walked over to the beach in the late morning to soak up some rays and enjoy the aquamarine waters. The beauty of this beach overwhelms me every time I come over the top of the dunes and its spectacular blue-green waters and glistening powdery sand come into view. I can’t believe the exquisite beauty that stands before me. In between periods of enjoying the seaside, we had lunch at the Coco Beach Bar, which sits right on the sand with a policy of “No shoes, no shirt… No Problem!”

I don't know who this little girl is, but she was awful cute playing in the sand.

The evening was spent back aboard Beatitude where we grilled some burgers and played more games. It was sad to think that this was our last evening with Julie and Tracy. Monday morning, they would fly back to snowy and wintery New Castle, PA. We had a great time aboard Beatitude, making the most of our last evening together. Maybe next winter, they will join us further south in the Caribbean.

Cindy says I may have too many photos of sand and water.  But, with this picturesque beach, I can't help it!

Cindy made brownies fitting for life on the sea - topped with blue frosting and little fishes.  (She bought this icing some time ago and had no idea it was so nautical)
