Doing a bit of beachcombing is not so bad either :) And hiking/playing around on desolate airstrips goood fun too! Watching the waves breaking on the Soundside of Exumas - and talking to boaters fighting the waves and winds from Georgetown we absolutely made the right decision not to head on.
The little settlement of Blackpoint was our final destination in the Exumas and where we had to say gooodbye to dear friends, divebuddies and our hosts the last couple of weeks - Ty and Kelly.
Ty and Kelly - thank you so much for your friendship and hospitality, this has been an adventure we will never forget. Introducing us to the joy of sailing, sharing your Willemsadventure and hanging around with you guys is absolutely AWESOME! Absolutely heartbreaking to leave you there on your own. But we feel confident that Sea Smoke will take good care of you for the next months :)
We love diving, but sailing is not so bad either... Feeling the freedom and speed made by silent windpower just can't be described well enough. As we left Blackpoint yesterday watching the Exuma chain of cays and islands from a small aircraft - this is truly paradise on earth. One astronaut descrided these islands with shades of blue, green and white as the prettiest sight on earth observed from space. Agreed.
