We left Trellis Bay at 8 am and sailed the 20 miles east to Anegada. Anegada is named The Drowned Island in our guide book. If you blink or sail too fast, you might miss it. It is a stark contrast to the volcanic mountains of the rest of the islands. It is comprised of coral and limestone and at its highest point is only 28 feet above sea level. There are over 300 known wrecks in the 10 mile stretch of Horseshoe Reef, which is on the southeast side of the island.
About 5 miles from Anegada, we caught a fish! Craig reeling in his first fish!
He was a fighter
Arrrgggg! Kate's ready with the rum to pour in the gills. Notice the name on the bottle...Callwood Distillery (the fish won't know if it's good or bad, right?)
Not too shabby for the first catch
Everyone wants to watch Craig gut it and clean it
Liv holding on tight so we don't lose it overboard. That's a bucket of ice.
Catch, clean, fillet and into the refrigerator (extra in the freezer) in less than 30 minutes!
Driving the boat while Craig brings in the catch
Anegada in the distance...a very low profile
Hanging out with a fellow Salty Dawg in Anegada
Cow Wreck Beach
It's nice to know they have their priorities straight
This is a real picture that I took....not a postcard....it really looks this beautiful
Not a bad lunch spot
Kate and Reese's beach spa. Erica and I received the sand exfoliation treatment and a foot rub.
We didn't run into any cow bones, in which Cow Wreck Beach was named. But we did come across a lot of cows. They are not big meaty cows like they grow 'em in Texas!
Sunset on Anegada
Lobster shack on the dinghy dock. A lobster dinner here is $50 per person! Yikes. That's a far cry from the the scrumptious lobster we had for $3.50 a pound in Maine.
Path leading to the water at Loblolly Beach the following day
Roosters, cows, donkeys and goats galore. This goat was wondering through out the beach and even walked into the bar. I guess their health codes aren't very strict.
Wish you were here!
Ready for the magazine ad
Carrying a log across the beach...just for fun
Playing under the mangrove canopy
Craig and Mat enjoying the patio...beers finished
The names of our boats, crew and the year on a piece of driftwood! Please ignore the crazy hair....it was super windy!
Example of the driftwood hung all around the bar
The finished product...all nailed up and ready to be viewed by the world
How many people can you stuff into a rental car? There are no safety laws here, right? The only way to see the island is by car, even though it is only 11 miles long.
On our way back to town, we passed Flamingo Bay and low and behold there was a flock of Flamingoes. 18 Flamingoes were donated by the Bermuda Zoo and now the flock is over 100!
Back at the homestead, Liv and Porter busy with art projects
