Chub Cay

Dream Seeker slithered carefully out of our dockage over the shallows and into the Tongue of the Ocean once more.  Denny has been consulting his charts, reading multiple weather forecasts and his favorite weather forecaster, to stay with fair winds and following seas. 

Slowly, step by step from Cay to Cay! We make our way home.

Take one step and wait. Wait three more days and perhaps the wind and the seas will allow us to continue  on our journey.  The first step, Chub  Cay, full of huge, shiny and sleek sport fishing boats, with their multiple rods and reels the size of a basketball and their captains and crews.

Chub Cay has come a destination in its own right for cruising yachts or anglers whose goal  it is to land a trophy billfish. A pleasantly thriving part of the Bahamas.

Listen!  Children are screaming! Screams of joy and wonder. Let’s check it out Clare.

Children and adults speaking multiple languages, jumping for joy, are pointing and taking pictures.  Some are throwing shrimp, some chicken cutlets, others ribbons.

One enterprising young man was slapping his flip flop on to the water. He was the most successful in attracting these enormous Bull Sharks with their entourage of symbiotic fish swimming along side and feeding off the shark.  One and then another, yes, four seven feet long and at least two feet wide aggressive hungry bull sharks enjoying the fruits of the Sports Fishermen’s catch. 

I am so Lucky! God is Good!
