We came today from a mooring ball at Fisher's Bay on Great Guana Cay to the anchorage here at Treasure Cay.  It was a downwind sail on the headsail only in about 18 knots of wind and most enjoyable and took about 2 hours.  We were glad to be on the move again though our stay in Guana Cay had not been enforced by weather but by the fact that we were enjoying our stay in the small town and pretty bay. 

The cut into Treasure Cay is quite shallow and as we entered the marked channel we called Sea Mist on the VHF to let them know that there was plenty of water for their 6 foot draft as we were 2 hours before low water and there is a new moon so we expected less water than the advertised 6ft at low water.  We anchored amongst 10 other boats in a protected bay in front of the Marina and Resort.  With the strong wind all the boats seemed to be backwinded and were moving around a lot so we sat for a while until we decided we were happy with our anchor.  After lunch we launched the dinghy and went ashore.  The resort comprises cottages with docks surrounding the marina and bar, pool, resturaunt with golf and tennis courts nearby.  Across the road was another bar and the most beautiful crescent shaped, palm lined beach and turquoise water.  Quite the nicest beach we have seen with inviting beach loungers under yellow umbrellas but the wind was still blowing hard and it was cold - not a beach day!  We checked out the local shops and then went our separate ways to our boats.  Tonight we barbequed a lovely pork loin and enjoyed a quiet evening reading and listening to the ipod.
