Black Point, Central Exumas

Wednesday, March 8, 2006 Black Point

We left the anchorage early and fueled up at the Staniel Cay Yacht Club.  We are not sure that our water maker is working correctly and we took on water also.  Hose water at the marina is 40 cents a gallon.  Diesel is $3.69 and gas is $4.40.  So we topped off all of the tanks and headed for Black Point.  The channel leaving Staniel Cay is narrow and shallow, two things you don't want, especially with a rocky bar on another side to make things a little more interesting.   After a few nervous moments we made the turn into deeper water, and set the autopilot - after a couple of hours, we made it to Black Point and anchored out.  We went in to visit the town and it was very quaint.  They were waiting for the Mailboat to arrive and did not have too many supplies, but we did order some coconut bread from Lorraine that we could pick up the next day.  We spent the day snorkeling and swinging from the Spinnaker halyard, which must have made us the center of attention in the anchorage for a while, but it was a whole lot of fun, and we have bruises to prove it.  We had a Skyline pizza for dinner (for those of you that don't get that, it's a pizza crust with Skyline chili, of Cincinnati fame, topped with cheddar cheese, onions, sliced up hot dogs, and hot sauce), and crashed out.  We went into town again Thursday morning to pick up our luscious bread and met a few cruisers that had just come up from Georgetown, where we are heading.  We got some good tips and at about 10:30am, we weighed anchor for Little Farmer's Cay.
