Moving along, continuing north, we motor sailed the next 20 miles or so from Cambridge Cay to Wardwick Wells. We left the shallow turquiose waters of the lee shore and headed for the deep blue of the drop off where the fishing was good. Craig set our 4 lines across the back with the teaser in the middle and we trolled. This was no ordinary trolling day, going from point A to point B in a relatively straight line. We had time to spare, so we really fished. What I mean to say is that we chased birds, circled around and zig zagged back and forth until we caught something. If you were to look at our chart plotter, you'd think we were either indecisive, drunk, lost or all of the above. In all actuality, we had been bitten by the "fish on" bug and we didn't want to head in until we caught something.
We caught another one! Phew, thank goodness. Now we were able to go anchor.

Two little sailors. We traded Porter for Kate on this day sail.

Wardwick Wells anchorage
Craig and I went on a little walk to find the old plantation...
...this is all that was left. I can tell you that it was hot and arid. Not a place I would want to live.
More sharks circling around at feeding time.
No swimming after 4pm in these parts!

The half moon shape made by the current. We moved over here to a mooring ball close the the cut exit the night before we left to make a quick getaway.
